    Probaly the rubbing part did more good than the vinegar.

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.

    I'm sorry if this is naive, but WHAT?? Your dad has a bum arm and if it hurts the tack is no good and if it doesnt, its a good fit? Same with LOOKING at a bit online?
    Then the second paragraph about the communicator and horse worrying about girls. I would say this is a troll thread but I think you take yoursefl seriously. Yikes!

    I am sooo confused.... so the pad or the bit doesn't actually go on the horse? It goes on your dads arm?

    Its when someone says thing to get a rise out of people. I don't think that's what the OP is trying to do but I think this whole thread belongs in the "horse people are weird" thread.

    Iodine acts mainly as an antiseptic, doesn't it? I think that a load of mumbo jumbo you've heard there.

    It isn't a painkiller per se, it's an astringent -balances ph levels in the skin, contracts, strengthens tissues so it will soothe much like a liniment (absorbine) would do, clean & clear would on your face, etc. Vinegar is also great for taking the sting out of a sunburn for the same reasons.

    The iodine thing...I can't imagine how that would work. If that were true what wouldn't they all fall down drunk if you gave them a betadine bath?

    I do not think QH is trolling. The ideas she has posted are really interesting and astounding to me. I admit not being able to quite put real faith in that, though. The thing is, we see what we want to see or are influenced to see.

    So, if you are looking for a change after a treatment , you will see one. And a person who has the self confident demeanor to command an audience, can influence you to see what is "expected".

    Perhaps if the iodine was blessed by a Vodou Priestess.....
