    Ok, I know that I read something, somewhere, on this board about ACV, even though after searching I cannot find it now! Anyhow, was at Sam's Club tonight and found a large bottle (a gallon, I think) of the real stuff (sediment on the bottom and all) for just over $4. So I thought I'd share my find and then ask what it is generally used for, since I remember reading about it but not what it was for. Ugh. My daily dose of humility. :blush

    Tracy, we want that recipe!! :biggrin

    Re: Apple Cider Vinegar

    I use it in their water, oh about a glug every other day (if I remember). It's good for the body, keeps the mosquito population down in the barn and it keeps algae growth at bay for the tubs out in the pasture.
    You could do a Google search for all the nifty things ACV does.
    BTW.. unless you douche your goats with it, it won't be the cause to have loads of doelings! :rofl

    A friend of mine thats into natural stuff uses it for her goat but I don't remember why. I think I was asking her if her goats had worms about the time ACV came up? I could be way off on that?

    Well ACV is a good immune builder and algae blocker, but does nothing for worms or cocci or sex of kids.

    I also use it in my bucks water to help keep urinary calculi a bay.
    At any rate it is good for the goats. And my goats love it.

    I'ts flulff :)

    Use the elchepo white vinegar to keep the algea down in your water, keep the good ACV for single stomached animals where the bacteria can live through a single stomach. You, your dogs etc...Vicki

    Re: Apple Cider Vinegar

    I never found the vinegar to keep the algae down. Maybe I don't use enough?
    I tried the white vinegar and the goats didn't like it.
    Maybe it is just my goats. :)
