Apple Cider Vinegar for fly control.

I've heard of feeding Apple Cider Vinegar for fly control and was looking to start doing so soon. How much do I give? A glug? Lol. Ricci is about 1100lbs, Gracie is about 500lbs. Thanks!

Bahaha, good to know. I will give it a shot still, I think. Garlic powder worked, but keeping it was messy, and there is that unproven yet still unnerving "risk" that it can cause anemia over time. The jug only cost $3, if I have to throw it out, I won't be sad, lol.

No, don't feed apple cider venegar, what ya do is mix equal parts of apple cider venegar, Avons Skin-So-Soft and water in a spray bottle. Spray the horse liberally all over the horse's body. That spray does help with fly control. Did it, tried it, it worked!!

I tried it last summer, didn't find it to help very much (then again, Flash is super sensitive to bugs). 1/4 cup, twice a day is what we fed if you want to try it.

I started feeding a garlic-based supplement called "Barrier" and it's been working.

I actually read about this in Horse & Rider magazine recently. They tested several "recipes" and found it didn't work any better than what you buy, though it was cheaper. However, you have to spray it every 30 minutes, so it was MORE expensive by that rule (the spray you buy is good for several hours). I'll give you the link if interested and you can't find it. I have not heard of giving it in their feed, so I am at a loss there.
