There are 3 horses here at the place I'm at who get beer. It has worked wonders on two of them (They get Natty Light though.. yuck!) and the third seems to have improved a little tiny bit. :)

I don't think I could ever feed beer, simply because I absolutely gag at the smell of it...Lol!

I myself see nothing wrong with giving 12oz of Guinness to my horse daily. He is definitely not getting drunk from it and beer is all natural. It was a particularly good answer for my horse who does not like anything "unnatural" added to his feed. He will come galloping from the back of the pasture when it is time for his Guinness!

I've never heard of beer harming a horse in any way. I used to own a gelding that would chase you down for a beer, literally.

I knew a hanovarian who would take the bottle from you, tip it up and drink it down. He loved guinness! also lived to a ripe old age and never saw health problems. The gas could be trouble as their stomachs are pretty small but 12 oz shouldn't be a problem at all. Cute video!

LOL!
I knew a gelding years ago who would chase you down for anything that looked like food...he once chased my friend Debbie down the barn aisle for an ice cream cone.

Glad you liked the video.

haha a the Irish say: guiness is good for you!

LOL. I would have no problems giving that much beer to a horse. They don't naturally live long enough for the effects to can have on people to actually truly effect anything IMO.

I'd use something other than guiness, barf.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Guinness does help. My horse has this horrid condition. No..not any beer will work. It has to be a heavy stout dark beer like Guinness or Shiner Bock/Black.

I tried the One AC on my horse...didn't help him at all. I wish it would - it is cheaper than Guinness.
