    I have a bored well and every critter on the property drinks the water, including me.

    Unless it's been contaminated somehow, I'm not sure where you got the idea that well water isn't fit for consumption.

    It's a lot tastier than city water, that's for sure! Mine comes out of the faucet clean and cold.

    Bore water is actually somewhat healthier than treated water/rainwater - it contains many more trace minerals leached from the earth and doesn't have the added chemicals.

    Ok ok I was just making sure, our horses have always had mains water, so I was a bit concerned that they might not drink it. But I'm sure they will. Thanks for your help.
