Horse Home remedies

I thought a thread for home remedies that people have used or made :) Seen this on a few other forums and thought it would be a good thread to start here :)

So start posting!!


(any mods or admins want to make this a sticky )

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

Erms, well I haven't tried it yet, but I know that lavender oil is an antihistamine (something that combats/suppresses allergic reactions). My totally cool teacher told me about it when I had some sort of weird thing goin' on with my elbow, and had some that he let me use. It got 99% better within 10 minutes! It was a mix between lavender oil and grapeseed oil, and worked wonders on me.

I know that the pH of a horse's skin is different from humans, but the next time that Lunar or another horse breaks out in random hives, I think I'll try it! (If anyone has anything to say about this idea, please please let me know, because I don't want to accidentally do something bad to my horses while I'm trying to help!!)

The mix was mostly lavender oil with about 1/8 grapeseed oil, I believe(:

Indian clay, eucalyptus oil, and something else, mixed together in specific amounts that I am sorry I cannot remember, served really well to draw out hoof abscesses before they blew out. Seen it tested on one of my MIL's Standardbreds. I was surprised it worked, and it lead me to have a greater belief in homeopathic medicine.

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.
