- No, no, no! Flax does NOT damage the liver!!!!!! Check my posts and you'll
see the link for Omega Horseshine. This is what my vet recommended for my
itchy palomino and it has really helped him.

Sorry, it took me so long to get back on this. Ive been busy.
Its not painful. Ever crack your knuckles? or your back? Same thing
but on horses.
I'll try to describe how to do it since I obviously can't show you.
Now dont do this on horses that arent used to people messing with
Towards the top of the tail (about 4inches down) take a section of
hair between your thumb and fore finger.
make a fist and roll your knuckles across the tail sideways so the
hair gets tight and rolls around your finger.
If it needed it, it'll pop.
A lot of times if their itching their tail they'll stop.
