I am going to a store with an organic section tomorrow hoping they have some... Otherwise, I will order from the link I listed above on amazon.

How much do you feed? Most of the reading I have done states anywhere from 15mls - 1/2cup. I was going to do 30mls to start and maybe go up to 1/4 cup (60mls)... What do you think? Too much? Too little? Ok?

When I introduce something completely new in my horse's nutrition, I start with the smallest amounts. So, when I started my horse on ACV, I begun with 1 teaspoon (5mls) and then slowly went up to 20mls - changing the amount for about 1 time a week, until the new supplement has been fully introduced in a month's time. I will maybe give him more during the summer months, when flys, gadflys and mosquitoes attack - I've heard it helps the horse to cope better with their bites, by making his sweat smell not as appealing to the bugs.

Yes, it's great! They kept a super soft and shiny coat and it helped prevent Queensland Itch :)

I use it :)
I got told it was good for weight and coat condition.

I give my horse about a 1/4 of a cup in his food

I'm not sure it helps prevent the bugs from biting (it might), but may help them cope from it being a bit of a sedative.
The colonial partisans who fought the British during our revolution and operated out the swamps of SC use to mix vinegar with their water to help cope with all the blood suckers (there's a large variety here). Not sure if they gave any to their horses though

Apple cider vinegar mixed with water can also keep you better hydrated in hot weather. It is call "farm hand" drink. My brother use to work in a living museum where they would live and work like they did in the 1800's and this is what he drank everyday when he was plowing fields with his oxen.

Yes I definitely use it. It is great for gut flora, coats, joints and keeps flies away!

I spray it onto Casey's hooves as a prevention and treatment for thrush, but I don't feed it.

I've always used it on my older horses, great for dealing with or preventing arthritis. I mix it in Bandit's feed every evening.
