Nope… I am not referring to the color but rather the fun little growth on the inside of our horses legs. I personally was always taught (when needed) to slather some vaseline over them for a few days and then they peel right off. I know many others wait until they are big enough to pinch off and some even cut them off.
You can also normally peel them when bathing your horse.
Some horses are really not interested in cooperating – luckily for me I’ve never experienced a horse that hates them being touched. I was kind of amazed by how ugly some horses chestnuts are!
What do you all do with them? Do you let them grow? Do you remove them? Tell me all about your care/ management of the pesky buggers.
