Question Liniment - best one??

What's your fave brand and why? I need to buy some when I visit the tack shop today so I'm just wondering about everyone's preferences...

horseman's dream liniment. I got it in local Tractor Supply and it did absolute wonder on my paint's HUGE hematoma between the front legs.

I like either of 2 products.

Vetrolin, or Sore No More.

They both work great. I like to pour a bit into a bucket, and then fill the bucket 1/2 way with warm water and throw a sponge in there and douse it on Nelson after a good ride.

ooo Vetrolin is good, too. I've use it on my old mare to help with arthritis.

I love sore no more for injuries that need cooler linaments, freeze it (vapco) spray for legs/tendons after a hard work out, vetrolin for hot summer days as a body brace after a good workout or show, and LOVE steam it (vapco) to heat up and relax muscles both before and after a ride, esp after a chiro adj or massage, and in the cooler weather. I find it helps loosen up the horse before I get on and does wonders for the muscles.
