Yep, i'm thinking that sounds like a plan.  Maybe I can sneak away from work for a day or two even....

I didn't read all the replies but if you're feeding hay soak it for an hour or 2 before feeding. A lot of horse's cough issues seem to come from breathing in dust etc. from their hay, I took my mare to the vet and had her checked out had a breathing test done etc. and he told me to start soaking her hay and bet me like 5 bucks that her cough would be gone in 2 weeks or less because I didn't believe him.

Needless to say I owe my vet 5 bucks now also avoid dust as much as possible.

crazy as it may sound- sometimes they get little blisters down their throat from dust hay etc.- when mine start a cough usually in spring and late fall - I give 25cc of FRENCH's mustard 5 days ina row- it has always cleared it up every time- for some reason there is something in frenchs that is more potent than the other mustards and it does the trick cheap easy and not harmful in any way- I do still use air power before I run and thank the good Lord I don't have any issues!

The reason for the mustard resolving the cough is the Tumeric in it. That's whats in the Curcurmin. It takes care of the inflammation.

I would encourage those with horses with allergies and respiratory conditions to try the Cur-Ost products.  My colt was on 8 - 10 cc of Ventipulmin, had been through anti-biotcs twice, Dexamethasone and Prednisone and was still very heav-ey.  He'd been to three different vets and couldn't take a deep breath even on the high doses of Vent.  He was obviously distressed physically and his body condition suffered from the condition and the fact he was getting no relief from any of the medications.  I took him off of everything and after much research on several different things I ran across Curcurmin and the benefits of ingesting Curcurmin for both humans and horses.  Through that research  I came across the Cur-Ost/Nouvelle research company.  After many consults with Dr. Tom Schell, I tried the product he suggested and in 2 weeks my horse has almost completely quit coughing, not to mention he doesn't even look like the same horse!  Much of the allergy response begins with inflammation within the digestive tract and creates a hyper-active immune response causing the immune system to not work correctly resulting in allergies and many other conditions.  Please take the time to read through the research and the studies.  I can assure you this is one supplement you won't be sorry you invested the money in, and I had spent ALOT of money prior to this, seen several vets, had 2 different scopes done, and the vets were out of options.  The last one wanted to operate.

My horse was on all kinds of stuff prior to this and i'll be happy to share all of those products with you.  Once taken off EVERYTHING and given a week off, the Cur-Ost came in.  The proof is in the pudding for me, and i'm so happy I contacted the company and tried this!  The first pictures are March 23.  The second pictures are April 25.  The only thing that changed during this time was the Cur-Ost.

 Thanks everyone!! 
How do I go about soaking flakes of hay?  A large tub?  For how long?


Does the mustard get mixed in with feed or need to be forced down the throat for it to be effective?

 Put the mustard in an oral syringe, give 30ml before you saddle. 
I really like to steam my hay you can soak as well but the steam has proved its value to me. I made my own steamer and you can buy a nice one for some deep coin.

i have a redneck setup old tub and a hay net because it makes pulling the hay out of the tub and letting it drain easier. I soak for 2 hours at night and then I leave her breakfast in the water overnight. It's messy and you'll be surprised how gross the water is. I actually have a sump pump i drop into the tank to drain it that way I'm not dumping gross smelly water in the same area. When the time is up and I pull out the hay I have an old rabbit cage I set it on and let it drain for a few before I feed so she doesn't end up with a puddle in her feeder.

I'd be interested in knowing more about steaming hay, I've not tried that or seen it done.

Care to share your homemade instructions??

I have put a couple of flakes of hay into a 100 gallon Rubbermaid tub.... Churned it all around until no more dust and had plenty of water standing in the bottom... did this yesterday afternoon and evening and they left no water behind! I guess they're loving it! Lol. The tub looks pretty nasty, but they didn't leave any hay behind!

I dunk mine for a few minutes and then drain and feed. My vet said not to let it soak for hours, it leaches nutrients.

I used a clothing steamer and an 80gal tote. Placed some gasket rubber around the lid rim and the fittings to get the hose to the tote. I can steam 3/4 bale of coastal in 25min. You get a clean crisp smelling hay when complete. Plus the nutrients are still there.

 Thanks!!  I will tell my husband (we don't need me trying to go all DIY...) to get on that this weekend!
