Hehe whenanybody looks in my medicine cabinet they are quite shocked. There are more bottles of household products than actual horse ones.
Lets see you got cans of salt for adding to feed to help encourage drinking. We got a bottle of downy for mixing with 50/50 with water in spray bottle for hair detangler. Can of black pepper to stop checking on the stall boards. Avon skin so soft for fly repellent, great for the face. Applecider vinegar bottle that someone else suggested but great in the summer in feed it makes a great fly repellant from the inside out. For a mild case of rain rot you can spray listerine mouth wash mixed 50/50 with water onto the effected area twice a day and clears it up nice. Diaper rash cream for on scratches. To remove the scabs on scratches wet the legs and apply baking soda wrap with plastic wrap and cover with vet wrap. Let stand 2-3 hours and rinse off. Makes real easy to remove scabs. Or same concept but use vaseline. I prefer the baking soda. Lets see we got quite a few bottles of vegetable oil in there for helping to fatten up the horses. It is great 100% fat. Oh real cheap safe way to soak a leg is to get an old tire tube from any tire shop. You can get it for free. Cut it open and stick it over the horses leg, fill with ice or whatever you need then tye the left over at the bottom up to the top of the leg and run baler twine through a few holes you poke through the rubber. Works great. Diapers always have them on hand for hoof problems. Diapers and duct tape. Just like salt and pepper. Lol. Wow I sound really cheap with all this rigging but hey it works for me, works for the horses, and definitely works for my wallet.
