An old vet of mine treated warts the $5 way. He said just go buy a wart freeze off thing for people from the drug store and freeze off the biggest one. No blood and the immune response is still triggered.
When a friend's mare got warts, we tried it and it worked great!!

I have done some research online and the general consensus is that warts should not be picked off your horses face and fed to them. Apparently some silly halter people tried it and left permanent scars on their horses faces.
Consult a vet. Its not worth causing undue scarring on your horses face. JMO based on some research online. According to most sources it is an old wives tale.

Annie I agree! The last thing I want to do is hurt my guy. The warts are on his delicate nose and lip, my vet actually told me to pry a large one off with plyers! I think not. I will not scar or cut him, don't have it in me! I was only going to try it if there was one about to fall off or easily sloughed off.

Anebel, I'll try that first, thanks!

My mustang boy has a wart or two on his nose. They haven't become very noticeable yet though. I hope they don't get too bad before they go away... otherwise I may need to look into the remedies.

Walter has big warts on his nose/muzzle and around his right eye. :( It's ugly, but it's a baby thing. Hopefully they resolve themselves soon. I'll ask the vet about it when he's out on Friday to geld him.

The largest one is supposed to be the primary one. Don't take it off. Pinch or crush. It will start drying - and the rest will too. But it needs to be the largest one.
