Information about horses



Horses drink up to ten gallons of water a day. Horses can eat oats, grass, hay, carrots, apples,bran, and barley grains. You need to be aware of the poisonous plants that can cause illness or even death to your horse.These include acorns, bracken, nightshade, yew, ragwort and maple leafs.

Horses drink 10 gallons a day! Wow...aren't you glad you don't have to water the horses for a chore???

Could you imagine making 10 trips to the well pump just to water one horse?
