It's July. It's hot in most corners of the country. Have you checked your horses' water supply, TODAY, to make sure it's still available??In very hot weather, a horse can become fatally dehydrated within 24 hours.
I ask after reading and seeing the video with this news story?about 11 Texas horses that died of thirst after their unchecked water supply gave out.
In today's world, many of us horsekeepers rely on the convenience of automatic watering systems. (This is true at my place.) The trouble with this convenience is that it's all too easy to get complacent and just assume it's working.
This is your reminder to stay on top of your horse-water situation, whatever it might be!
