Polly developed a skin infection on parts of her back. It was sore to touch and seemed to be spreading. We ground fresh chickweed in a pestle and mortar and placed this straight onto the infected sites.

Even though horses generally would eat chickweed Polly kept hers in places and let us change it twice a day. The second picture shows Polly’s skin after 24 hours and the last picture is after 4 days with hair regrowth. The infection has never come back.
