    DMG isn't the same as adequan or pentosan. It's for muscle help, not joint. Yes feed it when they aren't working. My mare has been on it for several years now daily. Works wonders for her.

    What I found works great is an old dull butter knife. Not sure where i got it, but it has no teeth or serrations, just a flat plain blade. I scrape that over it, then clean with glycerin. Works well!

    Pony club kick & immediately make them work harder- circles, changes in gait, etc. I don't tolerate that rude behavior, usually only take 2-3 corrections before it's gone permenately.
