Yes, that stuff can be found at most pool stores... works wonders....
Nothing like the fossils of ancient diatoms to cut up stuff. If you can find
the food grade type, it's also a good de-wormer for horses....  if you
prefer using natural stuff over the chemical de-wormers.
Of course, use it w/ caution, as with anything not normally consumed by
curious horses.
