I read this years ago in a horse magazine, maybe circa 1985....a hay waster, grain eater, put apple cider vinegar on their grain, just a little at first & let the fumes dissipate before you serve it to him. After he is eating the grain with the cider vinegar, start sprinkling it on his hay, he'll eat the hay too. I have tried this out a horse that didn't like her hay, only wanted her grain, worked & she stopped chewing the corral boards as well. The article also stated that the cider vinegar improves their attitude, it certainly did for that mare, big time. I have tried it on other horses but they already had good attitudes anyways.
