DRINK UP!

Your Horse (UK) - - Ask The Experts -

Some horses don’t like to use au­to­matic drinkers, so a large bucket of wa­ter should be pro­vided. You can flavour this with squash and even add a lit­tle warm wa­ter as this has been shown to in­crease wa­ter in­take by 40%. When horses don’t drink enough, the risk of colic greatly in­creases, which is why it’s so im­por­tant to mon­i­tor wa­ter in­take.
