I enjoyed the other thread about the different uses for Listerine in the horse world.

What other household items do you use? How much do you use or what ratio.

I've heard of:

baby powder for whitening white.
baby oil for shinning faces.
and now Listerine for itches.

I'm sure there have to be more. Please Share! yes.gif

well, there's coconut maccaroon cookies for diarrhea. (sorry for the visual)

and i THINK it was... baking soda? maybe? that helped with getting stiff new halters to soften up.

cleaning detergent (such as OXY) for tail whitening.

umm.. okay i have like a thousand of these, but i don't rembember any more right now! unsure.gif i'll add them once i remember. rolleyes.gif

This is a barn item. Helps with the trimming of horses:
To get the V on the horses back.
Use binder twyne, or heavy string, put it under the tail cross it into size of V hold and trim. Works

For foals enema syringe with dish soap and water half and half, fill up as much as they will take and stand back. wacko.gif

W-D40 for really hard to get out purrs just on tails

Always conditioner after shampooing a horse down, any we use on ourselves, can work.

I am still looking for that miricle for white tails??????????????????
I think I have tryed everything, must be something out there?

We sue "blue" DAWN dishwashing soap -- it is antibacterial also. It will whiten eally well, and if you have the scruffy & flaky skin probel, I have heard it will help with that as well.

Also, if you have dogs-- use it to bathe them as well.

Plain old vaseline for any type of cuts, etc.... (once they have scabbed over) We have used this for over 35 years on everything from minor wounds to fairly large ones. We use Farnam Wonder Dust while the wound is icky, then once it scabs, you can use plain Vaseline or for any kind of wire cuts- we make a paste out of the Dust and Vaseline. Keeps scarring, white hair and proud flesh away.

By the way, we have always used plain Vaseline for all our cowboys gear here- smear it on and set it out in the sun (must be good and HOT out) and the leather sucks it in and stays supple for YEARS. I have never used anything else on my gear.

Desitin for wounds, and for doggy hot spots.
Also for dogs, green palmolive will murder fleas instantly.

I use the black shoe polish underneath the coat of black hoof polish and if you buff it enough and your horse's hooves are smooth enough, it looks ok the way it is (not as patent shiny, but nice enough, IMO) sometimes for some occcasions. It helps to cover up the area near the hairline on the black/dark-legged horses so it doesn't show as a grey or whitish line between the hair and the hoof black.
oh and the non-alcohol baby wipes are great for at shows and/or in the barn for wiping goopy eyes or dabbing something off in a pinch. I keep them in my show tote and in my barn.
