    Every time I have hauled horses I used to offer them water when I fueled up. Not once would a horse drink while traveling. So I do not offer anymore and just truck down the road to get where I am going in as soon as feasible

    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.

    They're making a point that FRESH, CLEAN water should always be supplied...if not, then it can carry bacteria...(that's why I highlighted that part, because if read alone that last line doesn't make sense)

    Fresh clean water should be available to horses and ponies at all times. Insufficient water can contribute to poor health. Dehydration can be deadly. Lack of water can cause impactions leading to colic, especially during the winter months, when a horse's diet may consist almost solely of dry hay. Water can also carry bacteria or viruses that can make your horse sick.

    There was a lady at my barn a while ago that did that to her stallion. She would have him fully blanketed in the middle of summer, she'd put those chains around his ankles (the kind they put on Bick Lick horses) and she's tied him up so he couldn't reach his food or water all day. He was also stall-kept and he only left his stall if she had him in the arena.

    She got kicked out, thank goodness. I have no idea why anyone would chain a horse up all day.

    Problems w/Boarding Stable
    This is a thread by the same OP taht she dissappeared on. I think she is just mad at her instructor and wanting to cause trouble as the chaining issue came up after this.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this thread as it's gone on and on. Kudos to the forum members for keeping it on target though.
