    Do you use them?

    Anyone want to share some and the uses?
    I think sometimes it's ok to use them, but some people over use them.

    I can't figure out how to quote on my iPod, but to answer above post:

    I will generally make the tea and pour it over hard feed or in the bran mash. However, I will put a cupful of the leaves into their feed too. You have to be careful though....If you put your horse consistently on Chamomile there can be damage to the liver. No more than three months at a time and then give a month break.

    Do you give burdock root? Or the leaves?

    Just wondering cus I notice the seed pods of last year stuck in my cousins horses forelock everyday. I dunno if he's doing it cus he likes the attention of me picking em out, or if he's eating the leaves of the new plants.

    I actually found a mixture for that.....My trainer got me a bottle, and it's made from burdock? I believe you use the roots, though.

    I had heard or read somewhere to use chamomile flowers, but I suppose the leaves would work as well? May I ask where you acquire the leaves? Are they dried or fresh? Thanks

    I get my leaves from a sort of....wiccan magic shop or whatever. It sells tons of herbs and a whole bunch of books on witchcraft. They sell them dried up, and I think they actually do you use flowers. I've been just decapitating the plant itself. I highly reccomend the tea bags though. It's simple to hat wet down some hard feed with them.
