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!

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!! :D 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?

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.

All the hype on bottled water...
Is just that, hype. A way to get the ignorant* consumer to part with money for something that can be had for free. I've been drinking "hose water" for rather longer than the average horse lifespan, without problems.

And it's FLUORIDE, BTW.


*Or conspicuous consumption: I once worked for a Silicon Valley company that imported bottled water from Fiji for the staff.

I'm so glad to be a part of a forum where the members are so smart :wink: This is obviously a company trying to prey on the fears of horse owners. My horse and I drink out of the hose together all summer long, and like the rest of you, we are both fine. We are not above stopping at a creek, river, etc. to get a drink when the need arises. I guess we should be carrying around water filters on the trail. I'd love to see my friends faces though, if we were out on a trail one day and I go dragging out a water filter :lol:

What doesn't kill ya makes ya stronger I always say :)

And bottled water is for a bunch of hooey!
One of the largest water bottle disributer companies in the states. (Starts w a D and ends w an I) is just plain old tap water.
Just slap it in a bottle, and apprently that makes it a trendy and healthy choice...whatever.

Of course the OP is just trying to sell their filtration system, but this did bring up a thought on my part.

I had a neighbor once who swore that a regular water hose gives off something bad in the water. I don't remember what it was, lead maybe? Anyway, she always used one of those white RV hoses for her horses, that are supposed to be drinking water safe.

I went out and bought one too, because I did notice that anytime a regular water hose gets hot, the water comes out tasting really yucky! I don't know if it is safe to drink and only tastes yucky, or if it really is giving off harmful chemicals.

Does anyone know?

Either way, I'm sure the horses appreciate non-yucky water. I am happy with my purchase of the RV hose, it lasts just as long as a regular hose and it doesn't get that nasty taste, although the RV hose is a bit more expensive up front. (It basically looks just like a normal hose but it is white in color, and it specifically says it is drinking water safe).

What do you guys think?

:?

Chelsea - I realize you are trying to sell something but you are doing your company a disservice here. Before you try to advertise think about what you are writing. Drama, poor spelling and such will only get you so far.

And while you are at it, you might want to realize there is a bad side to RO water too.


Horses drink out of puddles and streams and such, you might want to remember that.

Regular water hoses can leach chemicals into the water, but the amounts are pretty miniscule. If you're worried, get a different hose.

Seriously, my horses and I drink from the same well. All of us seem to be relatively happy and healthy. Well water has been proven to be the best source for clean, cold water. Nature does the filtering, and I prefer my own well water over anything bottled. It tastes of nothing but cold and wet! :)

Trying to 'scare sell' a water filtration system is ridiculous. Septic and potable water systems are kept separate, whether you get your water from a well or public utility.

Too bad for you that we're informed consumers, huh OP?
