Exclamation Could your water be killing your horse??

All the hype on bottled water and healthy eating in the human world and throughout the world of celebrities doesn't often make us think of our beloved horses. It should, there are many hidden harmful chemicals and other dirt and grime that could be harming your horse and in some cases killing them! Flouride poisoning has been known to affect horses and kill them. There is a solution to this, a reverse osmosis water filtration system will get rid of all the harmful elements in the water. The Southern Company is one of the only companies to cater to equestrians and animals lovers because we are lovers of our animals and we are apauled by what all harm can be done to an animals health just because of the water they are drinking.

visit the website, we'd love to hear from you and help you understand how to keep your horse nice and healthy and performing at its best!

My horse has been drinking the "hose water" for 17 years and she's perfectly healthy. =] There probably are a lot of places out there with less-than-great water sources, so it's a good idea to check things out.

Yes but what you think may be healthy could not be. And drinking from the hose is probably not the best idea. My comany sells and installs water filtration systems called reverse osmosis systems which practically cleans out all the crap in your water. (which could include, to much flouride, excrement, and in used tampons gross.) lol, but I appreciate the reply back, and i hope you have fun riding your horses!! i know i will. And yes, some water supplys are a lot worse than others. In some cases well water is better or worse than city, or the other way around. So it's good to get your water checked or put a filter on your own sink. lol!

Can you give me enough cases of horses dying by direct cause of drinking hose water that it is statistically significant? My horse drinks water from a hose and the water quality here is high, he is quite healthy.

hose water has tampons in it? That's something I didn't know.......... *eye roll*
You aren't supposed to flush those anyway.....wait........ The hose does not come out of the septic! *gag* If we drink the water and are fine, the horse should be too! And quite the advertising. This forum is not for advertising products, especially like that, when ll of our horses drink hose water.
And roro, I want statistics,too!
Did you know that 98.4% off people posting products on here are only on here to sell them?

Well, when I turn on the faucet and tampons come out, I'll be first in line to get a water filter!

Horses have survived THOUSANDS of years drinking only water from wells, dams and lakes. Where fish pee.
They're still kickin' it now, alive and well. If you saw the dam my horse drinks from you'd probably throw up. There are random fish and eels that live in there. Him and the 2 other horses and 4 ponies that drink it are alive and well. Many other horses have passed through that yard and have drank the same water. No new owners have ever come back and said the horse is sick from the water.
