Apple cider vinegar

I want to start my boys on apple cider vinegar, but y question is how much should I put in their water. Right now we fill their 40 gallon troth everyday, so I'm not sure how much to add to their water.

What is your goal in using the ACV --- the goal will have a lot to do with the suggested amount of use.

ACV users like to feed 1/2 cup daily as a fly repelent and a coat conditioner. Those I know who feed it usually put it on grain. Depends on what you want to use it for?

I tried putting it in our water trough, but my mare wouldn't have any of it; refused to drink it. So be careful trying that... I put it in the feed with no problems, she actually likes it then :eyeroll:

My goals are for a fly replant, for their hooves (part of my pasture is sand) they have good strong feet, but they so chip every once and a while. Also for their coats.. my boys are healthy, I just want an help them stay that way. Our flies are really bad here, so with using ACV we will also put up the fly catch bags this spring as well.

I use a quarter cup twice a day on their grain.

If you are going to teach a horse something and have a good relationship, you don't make him learn it - you let him learn it.
