I don't feed it but I use it to repel flies, especially when my guy has a cut, and I use it on his legs while I rub them down after a hard ride as an alternative to something along the lines of a muscle ligament.

Smile Apple Cider Vinegar

I get my ACV from the produce with added Garlic. The horses love the taste. I usually just add 50mL to their feed. Be aware it can react with some supplements like calcium so give on alternate feeds eg Apple Cider Vinegar in the morning feed and calcium in the evening feed. Some people add it to their horses drinking water.

I've heard that over a long term use, it can be good for the joints. So both Indie and my two older dogs get a small amount in their food every day :) I've also used it to rinse out the hooves, it stings them a bit so you gotta watch you don't get a bit of a kick back but I haven't had a thrush problem since I started using it.

I was told by my vet several years ago to stop feeding ACV - He said the acid in it over time would destroy the enamel on teeth.

Take it for what it's worth, and talk to your vet about it. I stopped using it at that point...

I've had the same experience with any new horse that might have thrush. I spray plenty of ACV on their frog (and make sure plenty gets where the thrush was) and in short order the thrush is gone and the frog starts healing up.

Packing a hole that has thrush with cotton or gause soaked with tea tree oil works well too, but I still do a daily rinse with ACV regardless.

Hmm I might try adding it to my geldings grain. He's on a coat supplement, maybe adding just an ounce of acv an water to his feeds will help them stick to his grain. Only thing is I mix feed for the next day.. So I think I would have to bribe the stable guy to add it to his feed if I premix it in a container..

Eek, I don't think I'd use it on cuts because it'd sting. If you want a home remedy- honey is a natural antibacterial that I've used on cuts before Just gotta wrap it or else the flies will think it's too tempting to resist.
