The Tongue

Mules suffer much from injury to the tongue, caused by the bad treatment

of those who have charge of them, and also from sore month, produced in

the same manner. The best thing for this is a light decoction of

white-oak bark, applied with a sponge to the sore parts. Charcoal, mixed

in water, and applied in the same manner, is good. Any quantity of this

can be used, as it is not dangerous. If possible, give the animal

nourishing gruels, or bran mashes; and, above all, keep the bit out of

the mouth until it is perfectly healed.
