Exclamation White vinegar-great for after workouts

I think everyone should list some homemade recipes.
Everyone wants to save money and your household items might
Be just what you need!

White vinegar is great for after workout,cool-down bath,and liniment.

Cider vinegar is great for vitamin C. It helps stimulate appetite and balance the immune system. You want to use good quality cider vinegar.Not the caramel colored vinegar that is found in most supermarkets.

Horse refusing to take bute? Try applesauce bute lumps!

1/2 cup of applesauce
1-2 cups of quaker oats
3-4 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of molasses.

Mix the ingredients together and add enough oats to form a thick paste. The paste keeps for about 10 days in the fridge.When you are ready to medicate your horse,scoop out a spoonful,big enough to hide the bute pill.

Since bute pills do dissolve fairly quick don't add them until you are ready to give your horse the medication.


Mild Colic Elixir


4 cups of food grade mineral oil.
1 cup of cheap whine
Dash of ground cayenne pepper or ginger.

Mix it all thoroughly and administer orally to your horse with several doses from a large basting syringe.

Walk your horse for half and hour or so to prevent him from lying down and rolling.

If the horse fails to show any signs of improvement call your veterinarian IMMEDIATLEY!

These are awesome! Where do you find all this stuff?

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

I like dumping a few ounces of rubbing alcohol in a pail of water and sponging off a horse with it after a hard workout.. good body rub for tired achey muscles & helps cool down the horse quicker as it evaporates off the body..

Or half & half absorbine/buckleys 3in1 with rubbing alcool to save some cash and make your regular liniment last longer...

I've never had it dry out the hair or irritate skin..You would have to use it pretty often to have that effect. Also, you're diluting it, so I would not be concerned..
Look at the label for Green Cool gel liniment, first ingredient is isopropyl, and the directions suggest using it 3 to 4 times a day for some horses.

A treat "recipe" that I use it in hot hot weather. I cut fruit into bite size pieces and freeze it and give it to mine as treats in the summer. Mine LOVE frozen banana pieces rolled in oats and then frozen, lol.

Also, if you have one that needs electrolytes and won't eat them or drink water that has it in it, try coating cut apple slices with powdered electrolyte and feeding them as treats. I used to have a TB, and that was the ONLY way to get them in him. :)
