If you have spent any length of time around horses and horse people you will come to realize that each horse person has their own way of doing things and rarely do you find common ground or agreement. This is never more true, then when you discuss home remedies, to one person they sound ridiculous and bizarre but to another they swear they work wonders. There is a great article on EquiSearch from Horse & Rider that looks at a variety of homemade horse remedies and their effectiveness by asking a vet their opinion of the practice. It is a wonderful article and worth taking the time to read. Enjoy!
