I myself have never used pig oil, however, unless you've used it before and know what you're doing, I don't advise trying it. It's named "pig" oil only because it is used on pigs for mud fever, hair loss, etc. As we all know, pigs have a tuff hide and horses do not. Pig oil has been commonly known to cause many skin conditions in horses if ever in contact, such as burning, splits/cuts, gaping holes in the skin, puss, and sores. I believe it has a high level of sulphur in it, causing these injuries. Someone posted that they tried it on their pony's mane, trying to encourage his hair growth, and burned his withers badly from it causing him a lot of pain and they regretted their choice. I suggest you research it online before testing it out, and if you do decide to try it, it is suggested you test it on a very small portion of skin and see if there's a reaction first before use.
