Many times the 'old' ways have died out thanks to modern medicines BUT in many cases some of these nearly forgotten remedies are cheaper and just as good as modern treatments.
VINEGAR (I have only ever used the Malt) for ringworm, thrush, rain rot and as a general antiseptic. Gives a great shine on horse's coats if ypused after a bath,
SUGAR A great coagulant if you have a heavily bleeding wound.
Just two to get you started, please add if you have anything to.
