    Does anyone use it? What is it good for? Proud flesh? Why/How?

    Oh goodness, can't anyone just say if they've used it or not and if they'd recommend trying it?

    I use it in the stall, my gelding pees a bunch and likes to stand in it. so i dig it down, lime, stand, and shavings (when i strip the stall). even on daily cleanings ill dig it down put lime, and then shavins on top. i was told it helps with the ammonia from urine, which is why i use it. :)

    You can use it for proud flesh. I have an OLD puffer bottle that I put the PL in... You can use your hands to dust the area, but use gloves. (pickle lime isn't the same lime you dust stalls with :). That comes in a big bag. PL comes in a small bottle from Walmart )
