ACV Helps Horses Stimulate Saliva Production when Eating

by Miriam

French translation

Hi,

I also add apple cider vinegar to the feed mix I give to stimulate saliva production while they eat.

Horses, while eating grain, do not produce enough saliva and although their saliva does not contain enzymes like ours for example, it is hugely important for coating the stomach lining to prevent ulcers from forming.

Hence continuous slow feeding systems are ideal, so is adding large rounded river stones into a deep feeder together with their meal to slow down the intake - creating more saliva ;o)

Thank you

Cider Vinegar for Horse Intestinal Flora
by: Veronique Latour of Agrin, Belgium

(Translated from French)

I added a web page on my site ( www.valdesfees.be) regarding the cider vinegar that I use for intestinal flora, range decay, and spraying against insects.

Be careful, this only works if the cider vinegar is organic and especially, unpasteurized. The cooking-pasteurization process kills bacteria and the vinegar becomes inactive.

This is also the same for all fermented substances, they lose their effectiveness when heated.
