If it is the rat poison that is also used as human blood thinners -- it is stuff like coumadin or warfarin. The way it kills rats (and people -- rumor is that Stalin was poisoned with this) is that it makes the blood so thin it seeps out of veins and arteries....literally causing a person (or rat) to bleed to death internally. If you have ever taken these medicines (I have), you know that doctors are over the top sensitive to dosaging and patients need frequent checks to make sure dose is correct. These things are lethal on humans and rats if the dose is not carefully administered. Dont know how it would work on horses....one thing that is interesting is that Vitamin K (found in green leafy vegetables and grass) is a naturally blood thickener. When doctors prescribe blood thinners, they also tell the patient that they need to maintain a consistent level of vitamin k consumption -- doesnt matter if high or low...just needs to be static...otherwise dosage of thinner can go out of whack.
