    I had a magnetic sheet but sold it last winter. I wouldn't mind getting another. My bay horse seemed to like it. I'd stick it on him while tied he'd start yawning and get relaxed more so than without the sheet. He does the same with a BOT sheet.
    Sorrel horse is stoic, I haven't noticed much difference in him. The most reaction I see from him is when the body work guy works him over.

    I should add, I don't stall my horses and won't turn them out with a spendy sheet to tear up so I don't use them consistently.

    I have never used magnetic stuff on horses. But I have on myself. Right now, I am using copper gloves. Too many years of too hard of work, and I am paying for it now that I'm older. My hands hurt a lot. The copper gloves really help. They get to feeling like someone parked a truck on them. Painful.

    I don’t buy the magnets sewn into blankets or other garments. They are just not strong enough to do much.

    I have seen some lovely improvements with a magnetics machine though :)

    I prefer massage therapy to magnets. For injury recovery, I will use good old fashioned ice and cold water therapy. Magnets just seem a bit... hokey? I kind of have it in the same category as homeopathy and aromatherapy - it may help a little bit, but not enough to convince me to incorporate it into my management program.

    I can't see how magnets can effect anything. Not at the level they are at.

    Nope nor any interest I cannot see how small magnets are strong enough to help anything.

    The ceramic infused products I do use and have seen a difference
