I came up with a recipe for bit wipes after my horse kept refusing to take the bit after moving him to a new barn. The bit wipes you can buy are $15 for 40 wipes and my horse down right hated the taste.
1 TBS pure peppermint extract
2-2.5 cups water
A roll of heavy duty shop paper...
I've read that peppermints are OK as a treat for horses, and the only concern from anyone is that they might cause the teeth to rot if feed too frequently. Is this true? Anyone have this happen to them?
What other treats are "good" to give? I've heard of watermelon rinds and oranges...but how...
