I don't mind it going everywhere. My youngster had swollen glands and the vet suggested garlic and after three days (which is today) they are looking a lot better. As it's such cheap stuff (specially compared to a vet bill!) I thought i should put both of mine on it
There is some controversy and ongoing research into the use of garlic. I used to feed it routinely, but tbh I didn't notice that it made a lot of difference to my boy in any way, and now I will wait and see what is said. This article may be of interest.
Id say neither - Baileys garlic is lovely stuff, it not a powder but its not granules. Hard to explain but it smells really nice and keeps better than powder (which gets sticky if damp etc.). It also lasts ages and isnt expensive. I only feed garlic through the summer or if the horses have a cough or something. I dont keep them on it all year round as Ive read its good to give them a break from it.
I used to feed it routinely too but, like you, I can't say I've seen any difference since I stopped and it never appeared to repel flies as is alleged. When I ran out of it I decided to save my money and not bother again.
I ran out of garlic earlier on in the summer and Chum had a cough about a week later which stopped when I started giving it to him again though it could have just been a coincedence but I really think the garlic helped. After reading that article I will be giving him a break from it - he is on box rest for another 2 weeks so will stop it when he is allowed out again.
