Hello! wrote to you last summer after an accident with my horse. I have used Schreiner’s spray on the wounds and have had great results. I am sending you pictures of the first 4 weeks of healing. I have other pictures that have not turned out as well. She has very little scarring on her left hind leg as you will see from more current pictures. Her right hind leg still has some scarring visible on the medial and anterior hock. Otherwise it looks great. For the first 6 weeks I used Schreiner’s twice a day and cleaned the wounds with Betadine every 3-4 days. I was also walking her twice a day. I have continued to use Schreiner’s daily on the remaining wounds. Here is my story: On the 4th of July I had a lesson with a trainer I had hired to help me start my 3 year old Morgan mare. It was my 15th ride on her. He decided it was time to take her out on the trail. He rode another horse and was behind and on our right on a trail above the river. She balked at a couple of places where water crossed the trail, but continued forward. I had never been on this trail so when we came to a wooden bridge I assumed it was over a little stream. Bushes obscured the view so I could not see below the bridge. My horse started across the bridge, then stepped to the left and her left hind leg slipped off the bridge. I tried to ride her out and she was trying, but I felt her slip and drop down. I reached up to grab the brush and she fell out from under me. I don’t remember anything until we were both sliding down a cement overflow ditch dropping down to the river. She was ahead of me on her back, kicking in the air. She had gone over backwards into the drainage after I grabbed the brush. We both ended up in the river and she just started swimming with the current. I got to the shore and tried to keep up with her. A fisherman in a one man tube picked me up and rowed me to the other side of the river where she had gotten out and she wouldn’t let any of his friends near her. Both her back legs were bleeding. I had to lead her through the brush and dead fall to get to the other side where my trainer was bringing a trailer. Only we found we were on an island and had to cross more water. Another rider helped us cross and make our way through her pasture to the road. The vet came out and stitched her right hind leg and put a compression bandage on it. This stayed on for a week. I began immediately treating the other wounds with Schreiner’s and treated the bandaged ones after the first week. I was using a large container every week for the first 6 weeks. The wound healing is nearly complete as you will see with the next pictures I will send. Unfortunately there is some soft tissue damage in her right leg which will take some time to heal. I will send current pictures soon so you will appreciate the amazing healing that has taken place! Sincerely, Lorinda Smith
I was given your product by my mother-in-law who works at Choice Of Champions in Harrison, AR. I had a mustang that I had adopted that had gotten into the fence and was still very hard to handle. When given your product and told not to use the regular topicals, that were always my first resort, I was skeptic. Being able to just spray the solution on to the wound and not having to upset the mare anymore than needed was a blessing!!! She is fully healed, with no scars. Thank you! This solution is now my first and only choice, and I have recommended it to everyone with animals that I know. I have even used it on my dog after a fight with next door’s pit bull. THANK YOU!
I’ve been using Schreiner’s for probably 15 years. We call it “Miracle Stuff” It really sooths insect bites & just about anything that does not require vet attention! I’m excited to have Dover now nearby because they’re the only ones who carry it & before I had to remember to order it. Thanks for a truly great product.
I just had to tell you that I love you guys. I have some amazing photos I would like to send you. On September 22, 2007 my mare tore back foot open on some roofing material. She blew two arteries, tore a tendon and had two 1″ cracks down in to her hoof from her coronet band. She lost a lot of blood, but the vet worked on it and after 8 stitches it looked a lot better. About 6 days later we lost the flap of skin that was stitched on. We have been using the Schreiner’s everyday and her wound looks amazing. I have been using this product now for about 5 years. I love it!
The first two photos are from day 1. The mare tore the skin causing her to tear two arteries and she tore a tendon. The 3rd and 4th photos are from day 3. We lost the flap of skin about day 6. the 5th photo is on day 8 and the final photo is day 12. Even though we lost the flap of skin, it served its purpose of protecting where the tendon was located. In the final picture you can see that the tendon has been covered with new skin. We still have a long recovery, but I definitely plan on keeping my Schreiner’s close by!!! Thank you so much!!

Hi Ya’ll: Here are some updated pics of Belles wound @ 8 wks. Plus a few more of this adorable sweet little filly. Hope you all enjoy. Looking forward to showing her in the upcoming 2008 season. And I thought her show career was never going to happen. Now look at her. And here are some new photos of Belles wound, now 16 weeks healing. Seems now that the majority of the wound has healed it is taking way longer to see much difference. As she sheds her winter coat there will be some ridges and maybe the large bare area. All in all not bad compared to how severe it was. Thanks for all the support. Jennifer
Thanks for a great product. I have been using Schreiner’s many many years, with great success. However I have a story I would like to share with you. One week ago my 2 month old paint filly ‘Shez Locked N Loaded’ aka Belle had a collision with a gate latch. Belle lost. She has suffered a huge gaping hole on her right hip. With much muscle damage. We took her to the vet and repaired what we could. I told the vet I had Schreiner’s at home and even he thought using Schreiner’s would be a great idea. I have photos of the wound shortly after it happened and the day following the repair, now 1 week later. I would like to forward these photos to you so that you may/ or may not (your choice of course) use them on your website. I would also like to keep you informed and updated with new photos as Belle progresses. If this is something you may be interested may I have an email to send photos to. If not that’s OK too, I would really like to express my gratitude for a product that is so amazing. Sincerely Jennifer Cline and Belle
I would like to share these photos with all at Schreiner’s and to all who may use or think of using Schreiner’s Herbal Solution. This is ‘Shez Locked N Loaded’ aka Belle. She was born June 8th 2007. On Aug 6th 2007 just a couple days before she turned 2 months old, this horrible accident occurred. This filly is amazing. Not only did she endure a 35 mile trip to her vet with this gaping wound, she has endure the flushing and scrubbing with Schreiner’s daily. The first 6 photos are the wound about an hour after it happened, the next 6 are the following day after the vet put 56 staples and over 100 stitches to repair what we could. The lower portion had to be left opened due to the tightness of her skin over the hip. We tried every way even with both of us pulling the skin to bring both pieces together. No luck. The last 5 photos are 1 week following the accident. As you can see in the last photos the muscle tissue is starting to granulate and fill in. The wound oozes a large amount of goo. However between antibiotics and the daily cleansing it is not infection, just sloughing of bad flesh. I will send more photos soon. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks again for such an amazing product and for allowing us to share our story with you and your clients. Sincerely Jennifer Cline and Belle
Thank you so much! We wish we would have known about your product when this accident happened. Our beautiful sorrel paint filly was just weaned when she got pushed into a 4 inch spike on our fence we failed to trim off. Her gash was that same 4 inches deep and about 6 or 7 inches long. Immediately we had her stitched up, Oct 9, 2006, but it was in a bad spot that the Vet could not guarantee the stitches would hold – and they didn’t We stupidly tried again a few days later, drain tubes and all. On Nov.7th the Vet’s assistant told us about your product THEY SOLD RIGHT IN THEIR OFFICE. The wound began to heal immediately. This photo is Nov. 12th. This is what it looks like as of Jan’07. There is no evidence of scaring! Thank you again. Schreinerâ€™s is ALWAYS going to be in our tack room!
I am a 3rd generation entertainer and horse trainer. This summer my dancing horse cut her front knee cap badly. We are performing 7 days a week for the entire summer and I was very distressed that my horse was not able to perform. The cut could have used stitches but it is useless to stitch the knee cap. So I asked my savvy horse friends for input on taking care of and healing this wound quickly. Screiners was recommended and I had it overnighted and started using it immediately. The cut is healing wonderfully – better than I expected! I am really pleased with the product and would certainly recommend it! Thanks for your help and your great product!
I was so thankful a friend suggested Schreiner’s!! I was sick to go out and find this injury on my 3 month old colt’s leg. I cleaned it and wrapped it and then started quizzing other horse owners on what the best product is to use on leg injuries to help prevent proud flesh. As you can see in the pictures, proud flesh started to settle in, but after ordering and using Schreiner’s it cleared up and healed nicely!
