Apple Cider Vinegar for horses

How do you feed it? Plastic water tanks off gas so I use galvanized metal tanks. But when I add too much vinegar the water gets rank smelling and black. What reaction if happening and how should I give it? Keep moss and junk from growing in the tank!

feeding apple cider vinegar to horse

I poor a few kettles of boiling water over our hay to reduce sugars, and then rinse with cold water; then I rinse with apple cider vinegar... and I feed them hay that has absorbed some of the vinegar into it... I also add beet pulp and, if they don't seem like they're feeling optimal, extra probiotics, like HealthyGut Probiotics for Horses.

Because ACV is acidic, it leeches (toxic) minerals from metal, which, when consumed, can kill horses. (This is why people thought tomatoes were toxic for so long, as the tomatoes leeched minerals from the metal plates used, and would kill those who ate them.) Therefore, if you are going to feed ACV through water, it must be in a rubber or hard plastic tank/ bucket. I would recommend adding a small bucket with water & ACV, and using your current tank for plain water. As, with any water additives, fresh plain water should always be available as well.
