Apple Cider Vingear... Do you use it? PLEASE SHARE
 
I had someone on here suggest ACV for my horse because he has a couple bald spots for old bumps and I was HOPING someone would know how to get the hair to regrow. So I did a lot of researching and reading up on it and have found LOTS and LOTS of great feed back on it and also all the benefits from it! I am going to start this weekend mixing in a little with my geldings grain. Does anyone else on here use it and had successful results with it? PLEASE SHARE!

I've used it as an immune booster lots. Works great. :)

It's stinky? LoL

It's actually in my mare's gluclosamine/chondriotin/msm supplement. But I haven't read any articles on what else is could be used for.

Thanks for the reading material tonight. :)

I've used it to combat thrush before and it does pretty well for that (it's the acid). Also use it as a preventative measure when I clean feet if there's a situation that puts any of my horses in a weight, moddy area. Tea tree oil does a good job too (back an area with oil soaked cotton or gause. Tea tree oil is also great for things like scratches (rub it on the scratches). Not something I ever dealt with until I got horses with heavy feathering. And while I've never had anything but very small cases (you really had to feel for them) the tea tree oil knocked it right out in a couple of days.

I've used it for thrush, rainrot, and just as a general immune booster. It works great! I tried so many things to get rid of his thrush, and after only a week of spraying it on his feet, the thrush was gone! He gets it in his water every day and loves it! It also has given him a nice shiny, soft coat!

Just make sure you get natural apple cider vinegar (I'm lucky - a friend of mine supplys me with homemade organic ACV. She says - the hardest part is to wait until the cider turns into vinegar, lol) - they might be a little more expensive, but it's worth it. The cheap ones often are just artificially apple cider scented vinegars, that won't do much good.
