How very sad

What a horrible way to go. The owners failed to consider how much water horses can drink - especially in the heat. We have two mares in a pen with a 100 gallon water tank and have to fill it every day. No - it doesn't leak - they just drink that much - it gets HOT here in Oklahoma!

Your horses drink 50 gallons of water a day? Wow!

This is the next town over from me and when I saw it on the news I was just devastated. I am already a worry wart about water and now I am even more sensitive after this!

My 3 easily drink that much.

I have a 70 gallon tank, and I have to put at least 50 gallons in it every day.

I can see three drinking that much, but not 50 gallons each.

The google search I did came up with the average horse drinks (on average) 6 gallons of water per day.

Which does make sense since so many boarding barns the horses have one five gallon bucket that gets filled 2x per day and that is enough for most of them.

My one horse is a serious over achiever in the drinking department and he drinks about 15 gallons per day.

This time of year (hot summer) he easily does 20 gallons.

Very sad about these horses suffering with out water.

No mention of who owns them?

I thought it said at the end that they were trying to determine who owned them. Then it said they figured out who owned the land and were working on finding the horses owners.
