Oh... my all time favorite home remedy....
Sugar and Iodine.
Works great on pretty much everything.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

Sugar and Iodine?? What sort of things does it work for? I am intrigued.
If it's a long list, you don't have to list everything. =)

How much to you give and where do you find the good quality stuff - and what does it look like?

Hey. You feed them 2 oz's of the apple vinegar cider a day. I had to use a conversion site cause most people don't know what 2 oz is..great example is me =P...it's 1/4 cup a day.

I would get the kind that isn't dark colored. Apple vinegar is still going to have color to it no matter what. Heinz brand isn't dark caramel colored but you would probably want a big bottle of it.

Basically buy good quality kind.

sugar and iodine forms a paste like substance and you can put it on wounds.

use hemorrhoid ointment on cuts and wounds, it prevents proud flesh and help heal as well as keeps flies off ... I have used it on horses from a show barn and everything from a slashed knee (my mare) to the open wound from strangles.

And for the cider vinegar... it also works great as a feed through fly repellent.
Thanks for the heads up on the yellow jackets... Not what I want near me .

I mix the cider vinegar into beet pulp

keep them coming guys...all these are very helpful. I like the hemorroid cream idea. We have a hurt horse right now and we are putting caustic on it right now but I don't like going near it because of it is hazarderous.

that cream is great for dark eye circles on people too, lol. Use it on the horse, then on myself?

My stupid dog bit my Clydesdale on the mouth an hour ago; bleeding all over. I stopped the bleeding with my shirt and put wound spray on it, but would sugar and iodine work? Is it just plain store-bought sugar? Where do you get iodine? Would it work on my horse, because the bite was on his muzzle near his nose and mouth.....how often do you apply it? Thanks! I'm pissed off at the dog right now. He's usually not even allowed in the barn because that herding German Shepherd gets the best of him around horses and he feels the need to chase and bite....but alas, he snuck in under the gate while I was picking stalls.

My contribution: Most horses LOVE peaches. Not what you would think to feed a horse, but all of mine love it, and it's healthy for them.
