    I've only used them once on a horse that used to kick the walls down every night despite turnout for most of the day. They worked great - totally stopped his kicking. Besides hating them, he didn't...

    HAHA, I put my tongue in my cheek! Enough to see the lump clearly in all my pictures. I've been threatened for 20+ years that I'm going to fall and bite it off, and it hasn't happened yet.....
