that doesn't sound right 2 me metho and lemons acid would burn the horse is applying it on them. And by 2 weeks ur horse shouldn't have sore muscles. i would recomend a high protien diet cause protein helps with the recovery of muscules

the metho and lemon wouldn't burn the skin. and i have used it b4 and the results are great. high protein diets cause horses to fizz. it is alright for yearlings and foals because they need it for there development but not middle age horses.

of course, if you wanted to steer away from topical applications, Lysine works great - it is an essential amino acid that basically helps the body combat stressed, fatigued muscles...kind of works like an anti-inflammatory. it's not expensive, either
