    In regards to the Mcnasty, does anyone know where/if you can buy that anywhere? I searched online last night and seems it is not available to purchase anywhere...

    Has anyone actually tried one of these solutions and had it work???

    Personally, step-in posts and hot tape would be cheaper and less of a pain in the rear....

    I am definately going to try the kensington sheet and probably spray it with something, so I will report back with results.

    Aw crap! I was going to look for that. Right now I'm using a Stateline Protective Fly sheet (a Kensington clone!). It's just starting to show wear in one spot due to repeated biting in that spot. I tried to replace it with a Shedrow Protective Flysheet that didn't even hold up to two weeks of turnout.

    Now I'm back to using the Stateline sheet. My b/o suggested putting some anti-chew salve on it made by the German company that makes that DEO-Lotion Gel Fly Repellent. Hrm...maybe it's fly repellent I'm putting on? The label has been rubbed off. Anyways it seems to be working well together. The bitter apple spray didn't work well and I'm nervous about using Rap Last.

    I had to do this with my geldings. Having them constantly bitten up and tearing up their clothes was annoying enough, until they were doing their hi-ho Silver stallion impersonations and one slipped and came down badly and injured his pelvis. Now he has one hip that's 4" forward and higher than the other one. >:-(

    Anybody tried the Skin So Soft? It's easy to find out here.

    I used to turn out in leather halters. Usedto.

    Now they go out without halters. Saves me from playing "huckel buckle bean halter"
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Most grocery stores carry Powdered Alum on the rack with the spices, it is used to make pickles. It can be mixed with water and apllied with a spray bottle to the horse, or a blanket or wraps. For cribbers, mix it with vasolene. It is easy to find and cheap.

    Me too! I've found missing halters in the driveway and other pasture after being tossed over the fence. Or sunken in the water trough. Or once hanging from a tree branch eight feet off the ground... still wondering about that one. My pasture is like a crazy frat party during the colder months despite having free choice hay. Once the grass comes back they are usually more interested in grazing.
