old tricks

Anybody heard of any scams the old horse traders used to pull whether true or myth an uncle of mine in limerick told me that folk said a horse swishin her tale was a sign of bad temper,so the night before a fair they would tie a wieght to the tail and this would temporalily deaden the nerves makin her easier to sell,another 1 I heard if a man owned a gangster ,on the way to sell they,d make him swallow a small bog frog and whilst he could feel the frog he,d nearly tiptoe,but once sold and the dead frog was pooped out he would be back kicking clouds again and for sale at the next fair

An old feller told me that they used to fire a thick sugar water mixture into a horse 10 or 20 minutes before they wormed him in the belief all the worms would go to the 1 area and pass better,true or myth I don,t know
