ACV stands for Apple Cider Vinegar.

Apparently there are pasteurized and non-pasteurized ACV out there.

Does anyone know if they have to say if the ACV is pasteurized or not? I assume it doesn't matter one way or the other for the fly spray version (correct me if, I'm wrong), but one would need the non-pasteurized variety to get the benefit to digestion if being fed to the horse.

I have some ACV, that just says on the label, made from apples, diluted by water to 5% acidity, but doesn't mention pasteurization. I feed it to my boy, and now I'm not sure if it's doing as much good as I thought it would, and if I have to find some that says it's non-pasteurized.

Where do you buy your apple cider vinnegar? They only have the kind that people say not to use at the stores I usually go to.

Also, on a slightly off topic side note, ACV works really well for getting dirt out of manes and tails (I tried white vinegar too, but I don't think it worked as well).

With ACV the non p' stuff looks clear ish white and cloudy, that stuff has 7% acidity and the p' stuff looks like apple juice and has 5%, either one is good but non p' stuff is better due to the extra 2% And ACV is also really good when you put on the mane and tail after a bath, makes them really shinny! People also do that too! Lol
I read an artical a few days after I posted this! Lol

Half water half acv works well. It also works well to heal up sores fast.(fly sores scrapes cuts).
