My mare and dog like rum and coke. Mare likes it because its sweet. Dog liked it because there is rum in it. She will not drink coke, or tea or rum and tea. Rum and coke only. And she just gets a little lick out of my husbands cup. They share.
Mare tried to share with him, but she just got grass, dirt, and slobber in his cup.

really! This would probably help my guy as he gets soooo hot in the summer but sweats only a tiny tiny bit but you can tell he is so hot. Maybe I will ask my vet in the summer about it:)

My old man Rooster was a beer fanatic. I had to watch him like a hawk when we went camping! If he wasn't checking the chair cup holders he'd go straight for the cooler. One time we bungied them and went swimming, came back and the coolers were destroyed! He tied a nice one on, but I learned my lesson! Had to drive an hour to get more beer.

Once in very great while one wont hurt! But I recommend not getting the alcies started!

My pony smugly had a problem sweating, and since it gets brutal here in the summer, we were advised to give him a bottle or two after heavy workouts of shows to help him drink up and sweat more. He was also on electrolites and amino acids, and stuff for navicular. He and my dad used to sit ad drink while I cleaned tack and trailer and mucked stalls. He loved it :) he never got tipsy though....

The people I bought my horse from had her for only a few weeks. She was very underweight when they got her. They were told to feed her a dark beer once a day...the grain and the hops helped with weight gain. They mixed it in her grain. I haven't given her one since I bought her but I still remember how much she seemed to enjoy it. And I am sure the amount of alcohol in one beer isn't going to adversely affect a creature that weighs as much as horses do. ( as long as it is just one beer at a time...)

Our old mustang looved beer he was quite the character though. I wouldn't recommend really feeding it but a handful here or there shouldn't hurt.

I'm too poor to be letting my poneh drink my beer lol. But I suppose a sip wont break my bank hehe.

My dog on the other hand is obessed with alcohol, she used to steal drinks when she was a puppy. She weighs in at a hefty 12lbs now so it didn't take much before she was peeing all over. But being a not as quite as poor of a college student I now have tables for my drinks lol.

I would think if you were going to feed it, shaking it up and making it flat first would be a good idea...since horses can't burp and knowing their sensitive digestive systems, I'd be afraid of the carbonation more than anything
