I think this issue has been beaten to death...the original poster has vanished. BUT...the above sentence confuses the heck out of me. The paragraph talks about the benefits of water, yet this sentence is how it is ended. I'm confused. Is this a typo? I'm an English teacher and this doesn't fit at all with the topic, so I'm wondering if something was left out. If not, what is this all about. Being very new to horses, I read all of this stuff to learn, and this just confuses me.
