“I started to use Therio-gel*…and found my stallion’s penis is much less irritated by the disposable liners we use. I need to use much less of the Therio-gel…so cost of use is about the same…Most importantly, his semen are longer lived with a much higher percentage of motile sperm than when I had to use a large amount of the other lube.”
