Instead of buying expensive electrolytes, mix one box of baking soda and one box of iodized salt together.
Don't waste money on Sand Clear, buy generic powdered Metamucil (I buy the Equate brand). It has the same active ingredient as the more expensive 'equine products', which is psyllium fiber. My horses love the orange flavored kind.
For thrush and other fungal infections, I mix 16 ounces of water with 4 ounces of bleach, and 4 ounces of generic gold Listerine. Works like a charm.
Disposable diapers and duct tape have a ton of uses, especially for wound care.
Ethnic hair care products can take the place of Show Sheen.
Mineral oil can be brushed on hooves instead of buying expensive hoof dressing.
