My pony has awful warts all over is nose and chin. The vet has been out and has looked at them and said that she'll build her own amunity to them and just leave them.

They look awful, but the horse is in grand form. Could I dab t-tree oil on them? Would that help the process along?

Your vet is right, they'll go away on their own.

Leave 'em alone. Using tea tree oil on them will do nothing.

My boy has warts as well. He got them from a yearling he was roommates with when he cut his leg earlier this spring. Almost exactly 60 days after exposure he started to get them and has had them for the past three months. We are still waiting patiently for his immune systme to kick in and get rid of them... Unfortunately, there's nothing to do but wait, and try not to share with other horses who have not yet been exposed.

I had an Appy who had them when he was 3. People had all kinds of folk remedies for them, some of them that sounded pretty darn cruel! The vet said "Sure, they pretty much all work, because none of them really work. Eventually they will go away on their own". They did, but I think it took about 6 months.
