Is Your Horse Drinking Enough Water This Winter?

Did you Know?... Horses are more likely to become dehydrated in the winter than they are in the
summer.

Why is that? Well, a horse’s drive to drink is dictated by his thirst and this thirst mechanism doesn’t
always function as efficiently in the winter as it does in the summer. In fact, the colder it gets, the less
your horse feels like drinking – even when his body really needs fluid.  Water is your horse’s most
vital nutrient. Without it, horses die within a few days, whereas they may be able to go weeks without
food.

Horses need at least 8-10 gallons a day to stay on form, and up to four times more in hot weather. In
cold weather, horses will occasionally eat snow and cut back on drinking water. A horse cannot get
the water he needs simply from eating snow. What’s more, the forage beneath that snow is primarily
dry matter. Without a readily available source of ice-free water, this is a recipe for colic.
