I read in horse magazine years ago, that apple cider vinegar would calm a horse down and stop them from chewing wood. I had a young mare in for training that was Miss Attitudy Judy, and chewing down my rail fences. I dumped a 1/4 cup of the apple cider vinegar on her grain, not expecting results. Within a week, her attitude changed to calm and the wood chewing stopped. Whether it was from the vinegar or she just decided to settle down, it's anyone's guess. Doesn't hurt to try, just make sure after you put the vinegar on the grain, you wait awhile for the fumes to dissipate. This horse absolutely loved the taste of it after a few feedings.
