Re: [RC] Garlic - Typef

I JUST bought the Bug-Off Garlic from Springtime in the hopes of keeping flies off my horses. One of them is super skin-sensitive and spraying her is not an option. It will be interesting to see if it can do the trick. My barn sure smells like an Italian restaurant! Anyone else using it? I had the same question in my mind about buying garlic at Costco. Was going to go price it but haven't had the change yet.

Is there an advantage of one brand over another?  Can I use the Garlic Powder I buy at Costco?  (Haven't compared prices yet, but I have some extra floating around).

My gelding is a tick magnet, and Lyme Disease is a real problem around here.  I asked my vet about feeding powdered garlic, and he said to give it a try, that it seems to work for some horses and not others.
Well, it worked for my guy.  I used to find multiple ticks on the tip of his tailbone and golf-balls sized lumps (dripping blood and pus) near the groin.  Now I might find one tick on him per year!
Started out feeding garlic from Springtime but later switched to ABC's garlic, and I give him one tablespoon at each of his two daily meals.  He would sift it out of his sweetfeed, but adding wetted beetpulp took care of that problem.
