The tip is to on a daily basis or at least as many days a week as possible is to brush the bottom of their feet, frog and heel bulb too with mineral oil.
This is Kola afterward, that was eight feet to pick and then eight feet to lift and brush with mineral oil. I will be more efficient next time.
Also I received another Absorbine product to test, Ultra Sheild Red and it works great. Keeping our flies at bay. THis Absorbine Red works for up to 7 days 24/7 at repelling flies and mosquitos, I have to say that I highly recommend Absorbine product and have never been dissappointed.
Above is the state of our pasture. I can assure you that it is NOT dirt, but dead, dead pasture. It's like a tinder box out here. I won't even pull the mower to bring weeds down for fear of starting a grass fire, although even the weeds are struggling and I noticed that some of our trees are failing as well.
I also have made it a point to to keep the sun shades/fly masks on the girls and since eaarlier I was a naughty Horse Mom and negleted to sunscreen pink noses, I've been slathering the aloe cream. They are none too impressed. I must admit they didn't mind the mineral oil at all, probably made their feet feel a little better.
