Feeding Garlic

I know in humans garlic is really good for the immune system. Someone recently told me that it can help wad of mosquitoes and flies as well. I had my hand covered in garlic and was really supprised when the whole herd tried to lick it off. Has anyone ever fed garlic to their horses before? Pro's and Con's?

Do some googling. We fed it years ago, so much that the barn smelled like a great Italian restaurant. Yes, it did help. However-in the past few years I have heard that they have found that it CAN cause an anemia in horses, so there have been new cautions about feeding it.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

We were going to do that with our horses as well but then heard that it can cause some health problems and decided not to even try it.. and just get some really good fly spray..
