Hank Phillippi Ryan

You are too funny! Hope you're feeling better...and not craving hay.

catriona mcpherson

I love how they daintily neglect to mention any of the more . . . southerly . . . mucus menbranes!

Hope you're soon feeling on tip-top form again, Elaine.

Elaine Viets

Not craving hay yet, Hank. But I like it when people scratch my nose and give me a sugar cube.

Elaine Viets

I'll be ready to race soon, Catriona, thanks to something that's good for "man and beast" -- and presumably woman, too.

Charlaine Harris

I wish I were close enough to race over and see your amazing legs, Elaine. Would also bring sugar cubes and carrots. I draw the line at scratching your nose. But if your mane could use some grooming, I understand there are plenty of horse products women use for their hair.

Storyteller Mary

I immediately thought of Crooks in OF MICE AND MEN, rubbing horse liniment on his injured back.
I'm surprised the doctor didn't recommend a particular one, but I hope you have success with your choice.
This is one way to circumvent the ruinous prices of medicines -- whatever works!

Elaine Viets

There's also Bag Balm for sore hands, Charlaine. That's a product for cows who are sore from being milked.Some needlepointers I know use Bag Balm.

Elaine Viets

I've often thought vets make the best doctors, Mary. Their patients can't talk but they still manage to heal them.

Deb Romano

On occasion I've used Bag Balm. Not bad.

I'm dying to ask my doctor about horse liniment for pain! My primary care MD would probably say to go for it! He's really big on non-prescription remedies.

Please do report back on your experience, Elaine, and let us know if your appetite changes in any way!(If you tell us "I can eat like a horse" do you mean that literally?!)

Ellie Enos

Elaine, a close friend of ours survived a gas explosion that killed eleven people and injured ninety nine others. He has had collateral health issues since he was in the explosion in 1973. He suffers from extreme pain in his knees and legs. His doctor has had him using a horse liniment for over 30 years.

He purchases his "medicine" at Big R. They also sell Mane 'n Tail Shampoo and Conditioner, but it can be purchased at Walmart as well. Mane 'n Tail now comes in Herbal, etc. since it has crossed over to human usage.

Elaine Viets

Deb, I can eat like a horse now. I'm hoping this new treatment will help me run faster and improve my pacing.

Elaine Viets

Interesting, Ellie. Thanks for dropping by, Mane n Tail. Good to know.
