i have been tld by a good muscel man lol that if ur horse is sore in the muscels u put a whole lemon in a jar of metho and leave it there for 2 weeks after the 2weeks u can use it on ur horse.
has anyone heard of this??
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
