The water in stall he says he does that for there feet to get moisture doesn't keep them soaked just dampens them once a day
    The bleach has me freaked out.. I can't stop the bleach in through that's his say so but bleach on there skins???? That sounds painful don't it

    This was more of a rant I know I swear he does something new and weird every day lol but he's an awesome guy and CAN'T BEAT FREE!!!!!!

    I don't think the tree is bad if it's appropriate. If she was freaking it may of been better to do that than let her really hurt herself otherwise.

    I don't see a huge deal with dampening (I was picturing them standing in puddles) unless the farrier says otherwise I would say whatever to that.

    As long as it's a very small amount proportionally which I assume it is then it should be safe to drink. Not something I would do but I wouldn't completely freak over it. Talk to your vet if you're concerned.

    Though I definitely wouldn't put it on bare skin, let alone irritated skin. That's the only thing that really seems wrong to me. The rest I don't think is bad or harmful in moderation. I would listen and learn and take things with a grain of salt at the same time, but he doesn't sound crazy lol.

    Free is good

Years later we are told that iodine is an irritant but that the petroleum jelly doesn't soothe the skin and the iodine continues to irritate. This is like a rock and a hard place. Either the horse's skin is painful or the bottom or he's sore to walk.
    That doesn't make sense to me. Even if it did work... so the excess blood goes from the foot to the coronet band..? sooo..?? Then what, do they think it evaporates? Idk..
