Okay, now I truly think the benedryls (sp) I took are just messing with my brain! So the theory is that it doesn't numb the part of the body it is placed at, but is absorbed into the body and relaxes/tranqs the whole horse.

Please tell me I've grasped it this time! I think I'm off to bed, will check in tomorrow.

Hm. I might have to try it anyway. If it works, great, I'll get a video ;)

If iodine had a sedating effect, they'd drop down stone cold out of it every time you treated a wound or dressed their hooves.

If it works, you can put it in a fancy bottle and sell it for much $$$$$!

I guess... but then how can rubbing apple cider vinegar on my horses shoulder muscle act as a painkiller? Heck, one lady we went to made me transfer energies in my horse by holding her ankle, and the back of her back leg and imagining going up through the the hoof into the leg... and it helped my horse for some reason... I dunno!

The lady walked up to my horse, licked her finger, rubbed it in a circle on the back of her hand and told me all that was wrong with my mare, like her withers being out of place and that my saddle pad didn't help that any.

Beats me!

I too agree that I don't think it would work. Because isn't the iodine in some products we use for wounds?

Although, I've never put it on either side of the withers before. Now I'm interested to hear more! Someone ask their vet!!

Oh, and I didn't see Bubba's post before I wrote this -_- .

QHriderKE,

Hey can you post a video of the saddle pad thing you explained earlier? I have never heard that, so now I am really curious about this..

I can get my dad to do it sometime. He has a bad shoulder, so when he holds his bad arm out and it feels weak, like it wants to drop, the tack item isn't good for the horse, but if the arm feels strong, the tack item is good with the horse. It's the only thing he knows how to do like that cause he learned it from the lady who works on my mare sometimes...
It's handy cause we have even printed off bits from the internet and tested them on the horses, and it actually worked, cause my 3 year old didn't like anything with shanks (no matter how long) and my dad's 3 year old only liked a hackamore and a chain bit. The chain bit didn't test well with any of the other horses...
It works for us, but everyone will believe what they want I guess.

The lady who works on my horse also can slightly "communicate" with horses (I don't reeeally beleive in that) but anywho, she told me that my horse doesn't like my dad.

We have some friends who sent one of their old horses to a "communicator" cause he wasn't doing very good. This communicator didn't know anything about the family, and the Mom, who took the horse didn't give the person details. Well, the communicator said that Buster, the horse, was worrying about two girls. Well, there is two girls in that family and Buster was their high school rodeo mount for many of the events. That horse looked after those girls.
