Fw: [RC] Absorbine Jr.and Absorbine - Dot Wiggins

Absorbine Jr is for people------- Absorbine is for horses.
There is a difference, Jr is stronger.     People stuff used straight on
horses legs will sometimes cause hair to slough off and come back white.
The Absorbine/witch hazel/warm water rinse mix shouldn't cause any
discomfort used everywhere.

That's really interesting that I'm seeing all these replies...as I
mentioned, it was common procedure after races/exercising...I must have
used it on literally hundreds of horses. Never saw the reaction you
guys are talking about. Could it be the endurance horses might have had
some cuts or open skin somewhere? Then it would sting like crazy.

And it IS important to put it in warm water. We would also use a
Aborbine/alcohol blend as a leg brace before applies standing bandages.
Sometimes, with thin skinned horses, we would see a mild "scurffing"
after afew days, but never anything else.
