They said she had the Touch, although she just said that the best medicine for sheep or man was a dose of turpentine, a good cussin' and a kick. Bits of paper with Granny's own recipes for sheep cures stuck out all over the book. Mostly they involved turpentine, but some included cussin'.

A horse remedy needs to be especially strong.

Acquisition

You say: teach me please

Nanny Ogg nods.
Nanny Ogg says with a Lancrastian accent: 'Bout time you learned a new trick, luv.
Nanny Ogg whispers to you with a Lancrastian accent: I heard this one was invented by a sheep witch down on the Chalk, may she rest in peace.
Nanny Ogg looks solemn for a moment.
Nanny Ogg whispers to you with a Lancrastian accent: You'll be needing some supplies to use it, of course.  Smart gel like you will know where to find 'em.
Nanny Ogg nods knowingly at you.
Nanny Ogg loudly exclaims with a Lancrastian accent: Run along now an' give it a try!

Components

You need turpentine.

Assess health (optional)

Assessing the health of a rideable horse uses crafts.medicine.diagnosis (TM confirmed).

At 59-196 bonus, the health of a horse will seem to fluctuate between good and ill every time it is assessed, and there will be a note about the "untrained eye".

assess horse health

The bay horse:
  To your untrained eye, he seems to be sick with some sort of horse illness.

Assessing a horse's health takes 25 GPs (to be confirmed).

Treat

To treat the horse you need to succeed in treating it in 3 different ways:

syntax treat
Forms of syntax available for the command "treat":
treat <living> with [a dose    
      of] turpentine from
      <bottle>
treat <living> with [a good]   
      cussing
treat <living> with [a dose    
      of] turpentine
treat <living> with [a] kick 
  • Treating a horse with turpentine requires crafts.medicine.treatment.disease (listed in helpfile) and takes 20 GPs (to be confirmed).
    • If you fail you don't use up the turpentine. Phew!
