Honestly, I have not noticed that it has done anything for the flies with my gelding, but it did help his arthritis. He has been on it for probably 4 months.

You can not only feed it to your horses, but you can use a mixture to spray it on them to repel flies.
Beneficial for people too! A friend of my mom's (in her late 70s) was told by her doctor to pick some up and take a tablespoon a day!

I use a 1/8 parts Avon Skin So Soft to water in a garden sprayer bottle. Apply twice a day when I feed... you can spray it on the bedding too, the stall floor, etc. It works great, and unlike some fly sprays, it does NOT attract bumblebees.

I started my mare on this for the same reason. She seems to have painful joints just on one back leg. She's not too bad until flexed, and I heard about ACV, so I'm giving it a shot. The only people I've heard say it doesn't work are the ones who haven't tried it themselves, and are commenting based on scientific studies and personal opinions. I'm happy to see someone who tried it with good results.

How long did it take you to get him to a happy, pain free state? How bad was he before you started him? I'm so interested in this. I love homeopathic remedies!
