    So I've been thinking about using ACV(apple cider vinegar) both as a supplement (free choice) and possibly externally for lice. I know that its benefits may be questionable but I'm inclined to go ahead unless anyone knows of a risk that might be incurred.... can I give too much?? I wasn't going to put it in the water or anything because I kind of feel like they can eat it if they want... they seemed to like the stuff I offered them yesterday.....
    If anyone knows anything it would be great to hear!
    Thank you!

    Some put it in the water, and I've used it as a spray to use as a bug repellant. I'm wondering how you get your goats to drink it strait ? Do you pour it in a bucket and leave it freechoice? Mine definately won't even stick their faces close to it because it's so sour.

    to get my boys to drink it straight I just put a bit in a pan and let them at it... they made a bit of a face but kept licking..... I just give them a tiny bit at a time.
