    Default Horse products used by people?

    In my newspaper this morning there was a feature about beauty products for hair that included 'Mane n'Tail' as a product that has made the cross-over from horse to human use.

    What other horse products do you use?

    Sore No More. 1 bottle at the barn, 1 bottle in my bathroom at home

    I use Eqyys Megatek as a conditioner for my hair.

    I've been known to use Blu-Kote on more than one occasion.....

    Does it count that I used to like to eat the horse treats when I was a kid? Lol

    I just recommended that to a former (non-horse) coworker who is having serious back pain...the look he gave me was priceless. I had to reassure him that he would smell like root beer, and not a horse
    Absorbine liniment for aches and pains at our house as well...great stuff

    I may or may not have used Quic Silver on occasion when my hair was really blonde and I'd run out of purple human shampoo.

    I am a big fan of Sore No More- I probably use more in the house than in the barn. Vetericyn is also pretty fantastic- heals stuff way better than triple antibiotic oint!

    I use Corona ointment for severely chapped lips and skin, I always use Butler Bova cream for dry skin in the winter and I will use any of the antibiotic ointments (except furazone) on myself if I have an injury at the barn.

    cowboy magic for my hair, and I do admit to taking Zev when I have a bad cough, it is suspiciously similar to buckleys and it does taste awful but it sure does work. I have also used animalintex on small cuts that are infected, works quite well if you can get it to stay put.
    for the other way around I bought the two pack of Voltaren from costco, one for me one for the horses.

    How did the Cowboy Magic work for your hair? Been wanting to try it.

    I've used Mane & Tail but it makes my hair too frizzy. I keep Tri Care around-I think it works better than neosporine. Had a friend who swore by Hoof Maker, and a vet who used DMSO.

    And of course vet wraps.

    It works very well, you don't need alot either so the tube will actually last a long time. My hair tangles into horrendus mats at any opportunity normally, stays knot free with it.

    They used regular vetrap on my cast when they operated on my arm.
    Even gave me a choice of colors.

    Used to use Mane 'n Tail on my hair. It used to get huge knots when wet and that was one of the few things that kept my hair brushable.

    I have Hoofmaker in my cabinet right now. I actually need to use that on my feet again (really really dry). I also have vet wrap in my home first aid kit. You never know when you'll have to use it.

    ETA: Oh I also have icy blue liniment gel. Came in handy when I fell off my horse.

    Arrow hoof stuff is fantastic for nails/hands.

    Vet wrap... and surpass. The surpass is probably not healthy, but boy does it work! I know there is a human version... haven't gone to the trouble of finding it though...

    Absorbine gel liniment...even though it makes my skin lighter where it's applied, it definitely makes your muscles numb!

    Eqyss marigold spray! I absolutely love the smell and may or may not have sprayed myself for that alone

    Horse treats, salt blocks (I love salt, what can I say), and a small handful of sweet feed here and there. Horses eat it, why can't I?

    I've used Mane 'n Tail shampoo and conditioner, Absorbine Liniment, SMZ's, fly spray around my pants legs to keep the ticks away, I've tasted all kinds of feed and treats, took a little bit of ivermectin when I thought I might be plagued by a parasite , vet wraps, and Corona ointment on my thin crappy fingernails to strengthen them up

    So many of Hilton Herbs products cross over, I don't know where to begin! Also, my husband loves some of the Epona grooming products for massaging his back!
