    ABC Gel is what will really help....will PM you the details.

    It also gets rid of spints completely.

    I have used pickling lime on the skint knees and tore up chin of a bay mare. She was very much mistreated when I got her. I would wash the area with running water for 5-10 minutes and pull off as much gunk as I could without having to force it off.

    Let it air dry for a minute and throw on some pickling lime. It allows the wound to heal from the inside out and the hair on this mare came back it's original color. It is really good stuff, and I love it:)

    I have tried to tell them about it about 3 or 4 times. I guess it is too simple and cheap to be worth a shot:wink: But in 3 weeks the mare was so close to being healed that there was hair growing back. For open wounds the stuff is awesome!!!!

    Just a note, the previous owner had used a nouvell on this mare and had cut the crud out of her skin on her chin so bad that it had removed the skin over the bones of her chin. The remaining skin hung down and you could stick your finger through one side and come out the other side.
    The PL healed it up with out a scar at all!!!!

    WOOWW! Good story! I am going to pick some up from the store. I've been borrowing some from my B.O. and it's been helping my horse a lot too so far. I should take some pictures now and when it's healed and then post them here later on.

    Together, we can help spread the word of Pickling Lime.....:p

    Pickling lime has been used for years for cuts and scrapes on animals. It IS one of the ingredients in Wonder Dust.
