ACV for my Horse Caused Irritation on Underside of Tail

by Lynn
(Nova Scotia, Canada)

French translation

Started giving my 12 year old mare ACV (apple cider vinegar) because of all the benefits for horses it is supposed to have.

After 2 days of giving 1/4 cup in feed, I walked into her stall to find the top of her tail in a fuzzy ball. (I would like to mention that she is wormed every 3 months).

When I checked under her tail it was red raw where she had rubbed and scratched all day.

I think the ACV was so acidic that it caused an irritation when she urinated.

Has anyone else had problems like this?

It also says to start with a tablespoon 2 x a day and build up from that.

1/4 cup of vinegar is too much for that horse. If you take too much ACV yourself, it will make your privates very painful, too.

We also give Magnesium to our horses but they quickly can get too much and have loose stools.
