BARBLES, BARRES, or BAERS. Knots, of superfluous flesh that grow in the channel of a horse's mouth, in the intervals that separate the bars, and under the tongue; black cattle are also subject to them, and their drinking thereby obstructed. They may he removed by a sharp knife or scissors; some prefer burning them off with a hot iron.
