Rich has a small wort on his hand so will give the Castor Oil idea a go (can't afford raw steak to rub on it     )

Ive got a confession to make  
went straight into town the day after bodge said about the castor oil  
picked up what I thort i was meant to be buying, got home.......told zoe i'd got something for her to try on her varrucas    
"what is it?" she asked
Clever cloggs ere says "cod liver oil"
ok she was willing to try it
Saturday came for the sausage making, was in the kitchen and these CODLIVER OIL tablets were on the side
Soooo, i say to bodge, " i've picked some codliver oil up to try on zoes varrucas"    
He didnt realy have to say anything....................the look said it all      i knew i'd got the wrong thing straight away  
So does anyone have any idea as to what i can use these rubber looking bullets for on the animals    
No comment on my stupidity please

just seen this one on another forum,

pouring cider onto a wet calf or lamb will encourage the mother to lick it if shes not keen on bonding with it in the beginning, apparently it never fails

This is a great thread!  

Reminds of the time when my gran thought her hair was falling out (one of her worst nightmares) - she read somewhere that garlic reverses hairloss or something like that so she bashed up loads of garlic and rubbed it in her hair   .
Even after many washes the pong was still there to the extent that the hairdresser was trying to figure out where the smell was from.  

Having said that gran still has her own hair - none of us ever thought it had been thinning in the first place though

golly, i know and use loads ar to many to mention but ones that you might find useful:

Dandelion - the root, is good for laminitis prone horses

Comfry - wonderful for wounds as most people know, as long as the wound is clean otherwise it can heal too fast trapping any puss/infection inside

But fed to horses its a great allround conditioner

Rosehips - great tonic uses in horses

Thistles - dried and fed in their natural state are a good tonic and help liver and kidney functions in horses - most horse won't eat them fresh but dried they will you can ive them whole or ground.. my horses tend to eat them whole and fresh  

epsom salts - for cleaning the blood, cleans out the system, also good in poultice and can be good in human pregnancy can reduce/stop premature labour.

Chaste berry - reduces moody mares and sexual behaviour in rigs

Garlic - well its just a wonder drug/plant for anyone or animal

i think a lot of teenage boys and certain chaps would benefit from it too  

Some more useful ones

common nettles are great in various forms: bundling them up and striking the area of muscular wasting and rheumatism

boiled and made into a mash with cereals is a great poultry fattener,

hawthorn polutice: great for drawing thorns and deeply embedded splinters

I'm going to try castor oil on daughters varuccas. Will let you know how it goes.

I wonder if turmeric would work for mud fever?? (Youngest might not appreciate pony with yellow legs though   )

Garlic for respiratory - horses, chickens & no doubt other animals

Mint for digestion - also great for fussy feeders (ie my pony)

ACV good all round for animals - especially under bit of stress ie moving, change of routine, helps keep a healthy gut (though still worm with regular wormer)

seaweed - seems great for everything! love this

Oregano - great for chickens

dandelion - natural diuretic , good for laminitics
Clivers _ good for laminitis
Sage - good for teething probs/ sore mouth in horse
Stockholm tar - for thrush (footrot) in horses etc

marigold - can be used in feed or make up a paste

Willow - my ponies chew on these when they need to, also good for guinea pigs

Cinnamon - for laminitics

Oranges - a help against hayfever in horses

cant think of anymore at the mo, but these are just a few of what  I use.
