If a person with the chin cough met a man with a grey horse on the road and asked him for a cure, he would tell you what to do.
If a horse has worms get the leaves of gioleac and boil them in water then give the water to the horse to drink, it will effect a cure.
If a person suffering from the mumps put salt into a heated stocking and put it to his neck, this will cure the mumps.
