Today's bit du jour was a myler. It's a full cheek with slots for the cheek pieces of the bridle and is shaped. It looks sort of like this:
Imagine this same bit except make it a full cheek. It has copper inlay on the mouth and the joint is single. It's covered by that barrel thingy. I guess it was ok. Still think I'll need something with a little more leverage but we'll see.
Thinking about putting Charlie on SmartGut. He just doesn't seem to have a great coat and he cribs and while he isn't super nervous, something just makes me think this might be a good idea. I suppose I've gone a bit beyond thinking as I ordered a 28-day supply to give it a whirl. If I see a difference, I'll switch to the SmartPaks. If anyone has any thoughts, good or bad, I'd love to hear them. I'm obviously not a huge fan of spending money to spend money, but if it makes the pony happy...
A happy Charlie!
