Well your filly 2nd pic healed nice. Wounds in pics don't always look the same as in real life. Good luck

Based on your expertise, what is wrong the way the other leg wound turned out? The first injury photo that you say was "dirty and gross" was how she when we got her home from the sale. What problem do you have with her other photos? What do you see wrong with the final result? Of course, I know there's nothing wrong with her, as I see her all the time. I'm just curious what you have to say, since you have a problem with the care she received. Does she not look well cared for to you? I'm curious.

No I won't anwser anything you said. And ill post my opinions wheneve I want wheather you like them or not.

I'm actually quite suprised with how well the sorrel fillys leg healed. Quite an improvement from the first picture of her. It's amazing how well a wound can close up. I've seen some very interesting ways to keep proud flesh down or minimized, this was a nice heal.

Eh, don't worry about the negative nancies on here. I don't know how people always think to jump down someone's throat over a PICTURE when they aren't seeing the live product or problem but oh well.

That second filly healed up amazingly! Any updates for the current filly?

Looks pretty good to me. Someone posted that the fetlock wound should have been stitched, my vet won't stitch anything below the knee/hock. I very seldom call a vet for wounds, IMO sometimes "less is more". I've seen more damage done by well meaning owners who just will not let a wound heal...cleaning, scrubbing, wrapping, etc. If I feel I NEED a vet, I call one, otherwise I do minimal cleaning beyond the first scrub, may or may not wrap depending on location, apply medication of choice, and get out of the way so Mother Nature can do her job. How about updated pics of the fetlock wound?

Yes stitching below the knee is very much counterproductive.....stitching over or around a joint can cause more problems in a lot of cases IMO.

I guess these days people don't want to take things totally on trust and like to have an idea of what is in something, there are so many allergies around. As to the legal side, well yes when you are in business there is always that chance, if someone believes your product damages something you will get sued.

Well, it's been used my many people for many years and hasn't done anything but help. It's a no brainer, the ones bashing it weren't customers, weren't going to be customers. They weren't people I was interested in doing business with or helping. So it's a win/win. The people who didn't buy, nor would ever buy, don't have to worry about allergies or lawsuit. They can rest easy that the general public is safe. Lol

Thanks Roperchick! I'll post pics of the filly later.

I don't doubt that it helped a lot of people. BUT, from my point of view, there is up here an organic mane de tangler, it is sold by a well respected company I presume lots of people buy it, and BOY does that stuff work, but when it leaves me looking like this..





I would like to know what caused that, I couldn't find out, so now there is something out there that I'm allergic to, but who knows what it is.

Well, unfortunately, I had to find out the hard way, I am allergic to shrimp. I break out in hives. Common sense tells me don't eat shrimp, and don't sue shrimp. Lol. I'm kidding. If something causes a rash, I don't use it. If something makes my horse itch, I don't use it. Doubt I'd return the product, but instead save it for another horse. So yeah, this is the kinda stuff I don't want to deal with.

This sort of mentality is why we are becoming a nanny state. People cannot discern for themselves that there are risks, great or small as they may be. Personally, I would rather discern for myself if something has a good tract record based on reviews and case studies, while understanding that although it worked for many people, there is a fraction of a percent it may cause a rash.

This is why great companies like Vetericyn have to make their products so expensive. Vetericyn has had a lot of trouble with the FDA over labeling, claims, etc. which is a shame. They had to completely redo their website. It virtually has no information. Their product is great, and we use it to clean really nasty wounds, then go to saline. Of course, Vetericyn doesn't prevent or eliminate proud flesh, but I can't say enough good things about the product for cleaning. They've had to spend millions fighting regulation & protect themselves legally because someone might break out in a rash.

Personally, if I broke out in a rash, I'd quit using whatever caused the rash. Lol Same with my horse.

I sincerely hope your hand is better. That looks painful! Also, I hope you don't sue the makers of the organic detangler, and just find something that works for you. Cowboy magic is great stuff. Super expensive, but again, they probably have to go to great lengths to legally protect themselves.

Golden, no sense beating a dead horse. I hear ya loud and clear, and again, this is why I no longer sell to the general public. Thanks for reaffirming the decision, and I hope you don't get anymore allergies. Thank goodness, so far in my 47 years, shrimp is the only thing I'm allergic too. :)

Oh, and if you'd like to know what caused it, an allergist is how you find out. They do an allergy test. That's how I found out all the sudden I'm allergic to shrimp. About 12 yrs ago I ate stir fry and broke out. I didn't demand the restaurant tell me what was in the stir fry. In fact I didn't even think of that. Instead I went to allergy dr. And they did the test on my back.
