    I have just come back form the hardware store, and was told that Creosote is no longer being made(enviromently unfriendly). So the question is what else can I use. We used to mix the creosote with diesel sump oil and it helped to stop the horses chewing.
    So if anyone knows of some similar product that works I would appreciate hearing about it. Or for that mattter any other products or home recipes that work. Thanks

    We just bought a big tin of oil based wood stain from bunnings and used that on our rapidly disintegrating stable yards...seems to work okay. Probably works out a bit expensive for a lot of wood though.

    A $2 bottle of dishwashing liquid squirted all over posts works great, cheap enough to re-apply each week.

    I just use old sump oil.. I have a workshop with services vehicles, so no cost. It works well until I forget to re-apply and they always take the opportunity
