? And do any of you feed it to them? If not do you give your horses anything wierd to drink? Im only 18 so im not really planning on feeding my mare beer. Im just wondering
I am no expert, but even before I ever had a horse, the biggest thing I remember were the stories of people giving beer to their horses. It is just fermented grains or hops and whatnot- the same kinds of things they eat.
I know our 2 horses like it. My mare is quite a bit more discerning in brands than my DH's gelding, but DH has even taught his boy to drink out of the can or bottle. Not that either of them ever get more than a few sips every week or so. I am sure that is the amount they meant, not huge, get drunk, amounts. :)
