So yesterday Thomas, my wether, started sniffing and licking the ACV bottle, so I let him lick a little out of the bottle. And then he put his mouth around the whole thing and sucked about 1/4 cup or so out of it. And he wanted more but I stopped him. Anyways, is it okay to let him to that?

I don't think it will hurt him to have it once in a while straight and everyday diluted but I don't know that I would let him drink a lot. It may give him some soft stools but I don't think it will hurt him to drink that amount once in a while. Try putting some in his water and see if that does it for him.

Oh I did put some in his water, that's why the bottle was near him. It was adorable, and then he was licking his lips and doing the flehmen lip thing. I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't head out there today to find a sick goat.

I have 2 wethers that love it straight also and cranberry juice too...maybe they are saying they want it for the AC crystals we dont know about just yet??? Who knows why they like it, I dont myself just the cranberry juice thats all.. Mine live thru it with no effects...

I tried to give the ACV in water to my goats and the only one that would drink it was the doe. The wethers turned up their noses and refused. Now they won't even drink from that bucket and it has "Straight" water in it.

I don't think it will hurt him. I use to drink it straight from the bottle is a kid. We had a wether that love iced tea and would do just about anything to get to a glass. Shelly
