    I'm so sorry. I lost one of my boys a few weeks ago to the same thing. It was all utterly awful--and yes, not the horse to do this kind of thing, so I know what you mean.

    I se the Redmond Salt equivs that come from just down the road here. The horses love them.

    They do look startlingly like sclerotic livers once they've been worked on a bit, though.
