Im really sad to hear your chance is sick! huggs to u both!
Done that!!The DMSO won't hurt you physically if you get it on your skin, I have even used it on my VERY sore thumb joint. However, the garlic taste that you will get as soon as you get it on your hands is enough to make a person gag.
Many old cowboys buy DMSO for their "horses" and then use it for themselves for the old aches and pains.
Agreed. Any horse that tried to get me off just because it's windy and chilly(I can understand added spookiness) would be in a carton of Japanese ice cream. Even Thunder, the silly pony I've been working with, who has a buckin' & rearin' history, has a clear reason for it-- inexperienced hands with harsh bit or crap saddle.If my horse was disregarding it's training and putting me in danger JUST because of the weather, I would think about putting it down. That is dangerous and unpredictable. With consistent handling and discipline NO horse should have that violent a reaction to such a simple thing as the weather.
