Rubbing alcohol?

The other night after my friend and I had finished jumping she proceeded to put rubbing alcohol on her horse's legs. She told me it was to prevent any fungus from forming and just to clean them off. Has anyone ever done this before? I have just recently starting using polo wraps with the horse I lease. Anything is fine!

I use wintergreen alcohol to rub down legs, other areas too if feel needs it. Helps to get blood flowing, and will clean leg I suppose, but so would water on your hands.

It does help cool I think, and used in a strapping motion, keeps legs in better shape.

I use absorbine liniment, it's 40% alcohol with some enchinea & other herbs. Yes the alcohol is an astringent so yup it prevents minor funguses (fungi?) and feels good on the skin which in turn feels good on the muscles. Feels good on my hands & joints when I rub down their legs.
