Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

  • Best product for proud flesh...

    My horse had a large sarciod removed from his face, just the the right of his left eye, a few months ago.

    Today I picked him up after the end of his lease and notice that while it is healing nicely for the most part, there is some proud flesh forming. Its about the diameter of a dime, located near the top of where the sarciod was. I am going to call the vet on Monday to see if there is something she can do or reccomend, but wanted to know what your proud flesh remedies were.

    I have used preporation H before on things like legs and had great results, but Im not sure if it would work in this location or not...

    I have scoured the area before and put scarlett oil on it and covered that with wonder dust. Its an old remedy but its worked well.


    • #3
      Depending on the size of the lesion, I also like wonder dust.


      • #4
        Are you sure it is not regrowth of the sarcoid tumor?


        • #5
          Another vote for Wonder Dust. Have been using that stuff for over 20 years. It works great!

            Its not regrowth of the sarciod. The area itself looks great, hair is starting to grow, skin looks good. The vet had removed about the size of two silver dollars.

            The area that is proud flesh is about the size of a dime, maybe 1/4 "tall" or thick. It is def. proud flesh.

              I was looking to see if Wonder Dust was mentioned... used that stuff forty-five years ago


              • Original Poster

                Here is a picture...although its not a close up.


                You can see the outline of the area that was removed, with the proudflesh area near the center.

                  Your link doesn't work. I use Equaide for proudflesh. Have yet to see anything do a better job.

                    If proudflesh is already developed, dermacleanse is a good choice. Scrubbing it off and then applying wonder dust is a great way to get rid of it IF you can scrub the proudflesh off.

                      Don't use Wonder Dust if there is a chance the spot will have to be stitched.

                      I'd use water/banamine to scrub out the proud flesh and let it bleed a second. Pat dry with clean cotton balls/cloth/wrap. Pay dry the best you can and apply Wonder Dust.

                      My vet said no WD if I think the spot will need a stitch because it is so good at closing a wound and preventing proud flesh, it prevents the tissue fiber from staying rough and healing itself with stitches on top.

                        Equaide is by far the best stuff on the market for proud flesh.
                        I have seen it heal things i never thought would be healed properly.
                        Can't say enough about this product.

                          Tea Pro spray healed a nasty patch of proud flesh on my filly that Wonder Dust just kept irritating and making worse. The vet told me that she has no clue why people keep using Wonder Dust on proud flesh - it is caustic and so irritating. You only make it worse. I don't ever use the stuff, but did on this proud flesh because I'd read it works. Well, lets just say the vet was right. I watched that proud flesh get uglier and angrier every day. Within 24 hours of using the Tea Pro spray, it was scabbed over and looked 100% better. Totally cured it in just a few days.

                            My bet is on a recurrence of the sarcoid. Sarcoids can and often do come back in a different form, i.e., from the verrucous (warty type) to the fibroblastic (proud flesh type) after surgery if other treatments (cryo and/or chemo/radiation) were not started.

                            Wonderdust and other OTC preparations won't do a thing for sarcoids. You may want to consider Xxterra or one of the other bloodroot based ointments.

                            Best wishes.

                              I am waiting on a call from the vet, so we'll see what she says...Ive asked her to actually come out to make sure its not regrowth...I dont think it is, but it could be I guess.

                              This is my first experience with a sarciod of this size, so its possible that it is and I just dont know it.

                              Thanks for all of the input!

                                EQUAIDE hands down

                                  I am currently taking care of a horse who had a nasty wound on her leg- vet gave me a small jar of stuff called Proudsoff to use- its been working well so far. This is the first time I'm using it- but so far so good.

                                    DEFINITLY THE EQUIAIDE! I have seen this product work miracles on two different horses. A friend of mine had a 2 year of cut his leg to the bone, with marks on the bone. They diligently applied the equiaide and you can barely tell there was such an awful injury on his leg anymore. Also my mare decided it would be a lovely idea to kick and another horse on the OTHER SIDE of her fence and managed to gash the front side of her hock right where the joint bends. It was not a pretty injury and she was very lucky it wasn't worse than it was. Because of the location there was really nothing the vet could do. I applied the equiaid for several months as the injury healed and now, 2 years later there is a this scar and that is all. The scar tissue and proud flesh were very minimal and she has no limits with range of motion. I highly reccomend this product!

                                      Well, after texting my vet pictures she seems to be on the same page as those that said sarciod regrowth.

                                      She is going to make a trip out to be sure and will treat as needed.

                                        I would try Crest (plain original) toothpaste, if you wanted to try the cheap route to get rid of the sarcoid. Or you could do the more expensive route of Cysplatin and sesame oil treatment.

                                        Sarcoids are re-occurring and a pain to deal with. been there done that with them on a couple of different horses. The surgical route did not work on one(mamy, many years ago) and the cysplatin/sesame oil was a great success on the latest (a couple of years ago).
