Who knew?

Thought I would share two major breakthroughs I have had in the past few weeks for grooming.

Apple cider vinegar sprayed on and wiped with a towel makes dust disappear, while leaving coat shiny. Also, if sprayed onto coat after bathing, when horse is dry, he will be very shiny & soft!

UdderMint (dairy udder cream) is an AMAZING liniment. Comes as a gel. Just massage in and your horse will be feeling very good! You can acctually feel it working on your hands after rubbing it in.

If anyone else has grooming ideas, please share!

The apple cider vinigar, thing also works with plain ol' rubbing alcohol, our even just water.

I love ACV. Works wonders. I use it on my dogs, myself, and the horses. Keeps away the bugs, promotes great hair and coat, and works with the joints, too.

Does ACV cause burning if you hit a scratch or scrape accidentally?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

When I spray it on my arms/legs for bug control it doesn't burn me. So I don't think it would an animals.
