Warts Ugly warts !

my three year old blue roan paint has developed a rash of warts on her muzzle/chin... any ideas on a quick cure? I read they will go away in time (6-9 months) and she'll have a lifetime immunity.. but I want to take her to a show in July... she'll be around other horses..... ugh

I have heard sometimes crushing one of the warts will make them all go away sooner. Not something I have tried, other than that, nothing else I know of, sorry. I only had one young horse that had them as a 2 yr old, lasted the summer.

I should put a photo up of my rising 2 year olds warty problem :P
He looks hideous at the moment, he got them really badly. All around his mouth, nose and even some up his cheeks nearly to his eyes. They've just started to come off over the last couple of weeks, after about 3 months of having them.
I've heard you can put teatree oil on them, but really, it's just a young horse thing and unless your show is an official show counting towards qualifications for royal level or similar, I wouldn't be terribly fussed. Just don't trim him too close, and apply makeup to hide them as much as possible.

My 2yr old mare had them as a yearling.... It seemed to last forever but they did eventually dry up and go away. Time is all that you can really ask for.
