First- I think this would fit here. If it's the wrong forum, let me know.

But Magic does drink, but he can be picky about it. He won't drink in his stall, so he does have to go out every day to drink in a field or a run in-which is no problem.

The horse isn't suffering from not drinking in his stall, but I was wondering if anyone had any tips that could encourage him to drink? I know the old saying' you can take a horse to water but you can't make him drink'..lol. But if you have any tips, let me know.

Give him some salt in his feed, or put a little flavoring in the water, such as Gatorade powder, or molasses. Good Luck!

Worth a shot. He gets a salt lick, but i'll look into spiking his water with those.

:D

I've tossed carrot slices in as they sink to the bottom. If he's turned out and bro't in when it's dark he's probably had his fill after daylight and as it gets darker. This seems to be the pattern of all grazing animals if man doesn't interfere.
