The camomile blossom can be really helpful if horses are excited due to a competition or if nervous horses often provide colics.
Moreover this medicinal herb improves the general condition of the horse. In form of an ointment you can lubricate it on sweet itches.
Generally one must avoid the area around the eye so riders need to be careful!
You can collect the camomile blossoms between June and July. You can feed up to 50 g per day (fresh or dried camomile blossom).
