Your welcome. I really want to get the word out about it. I made the video cute and funny, but in some parts of the country it is a very serious issue for horses and horse owners!

Beer is a diuretic...not sure if it would make one sweat more, usually the overworked kidneys shed that extra through the urine, not via sweat... I suppose it could work that way, it just seems odd to me.

Seems like that would create additional problems. I'd try other things before that.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I doubt that a vet would recommend it (and it is commonly prescribed) if it would harm the horse. And it certainly did not harm mine!

Still seems there's something better out there than giving beer to a horse.

Sounds like there is a really good supplement for it's treatment, One AC.

I would definitely try that out...it seems to be pretty much 'all natural' which I like.

I wonder if the beer would test pos. on a drug test?
