Cider vinegar is great for vitamin C. It helps stimulate appetite and balance the immune system. You want to use good quality cider vinegar.Not the caramel colored vinegar that is found in most supermarkets.
White vinegar does work well for this... However... in my area we have a lot of yellow jackets... and they seem to love the vinegar, and they swarmed my poor horse! So just make sure your careful about it.

And for the cider vinegar... it also works great as a feed through fly repellent.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

Also, if you have one that needs electrolytes and won't eat them or drink water that has it in it, try coating cut apple slices with powdered electrolyte and feeding them as treats. I used to have a TB, and that was the ONLY way to get them in him. :)


That is awesome!

What a great idea.
My horse is not a big drinker so my vet recommends soaking her hay. I also give her salt in some of her food. I will have to try this too.

I LOVE this thread!! This is so interesting to me. There runs a danger of not knowing for sure if it really is healthy for your horse, but it's so helpful when it does work.

This isn't a real home remedy, but, this concerns those of you who use Mare Magic. Mare Magic is literally just coarse ground Rubeus Ideaus or Red Raspberry Leaf. You can purchase dried and ground Raspberry Leaf from bulk herb resellers for cheaper. (You can even purchase it organic if you so wish) Two things: I would be careful of purchasing finely ground, as this can blow away or be inhaled (not too huge a deal as many supplements are powder form) and secondly, I would purchase a small amount first just to make sure your horse will even ingest it. I'm beginning to believe my mare is NOT a picky eater at all. I don't plan on testing that theory much.

That's all, that's my tiny contribution.

I have definitely seen results with the Red Raspberry Leaves. Definitely! She's gone from very nervous, the-world-is-out-to-get-me, and almost vulgar during her cycle to much more relaxed and focused.

However, while I was doing research before I even started her on it, it appears that it depends on the horse. Some people experienced no success with it. Since my mare was a broodmare for so long, and her cycles were encouraged, I figured this would help her a lot and took a gamble on it. I hope it works for you if you decide to try it.

vinegar a 1/4 cup per day also helps with keeping mosquitoes off ... or mix it with skin so soft and you have a mosquito repellent ...

Alright, I might give it a go. My horse is a cranky butt.

I think I might have to try it as a repellent instead of using it in feed since she isn't allowed to have grain. She just gets her little probiotics,carrots,treats,etc..no grain though.

These are all great everyone.Keep all the ideas coming!
