Arrow Solution to getting your horse to drink!

I found a way to get horses to drink water if they're reluctant to....

Put a small amount of pre-soaked beet pulp (soaked for 4+ hours) in the water bucket, and they'll drain a few buckets lol. I did that today because a bucket I used for water had beet pulp remnants in it from this morning, and man, one of my horses drained 2 water buckets within a few minutes!

Just wanted to share, if your horse is reluctant to drink water, put some pre-soaked beet pulp in the bucket and most horses will drink it right up

Mine have always enjoyed apple juice, and even apple cider vinegar (although I usually save the ACV for their feed)...unsweetened coolaid added to a bucket of water entices them too, as does molasses.

When we show livestock we always mix Jello powder in the water. A little box in a 5 gallon bucket gives it a sweetness they love. Strawberry is a hit!
