All year round, horses and ponies need to keep hydrated, particularly during the warmer periods of the year where water is lost through sweating.
Water levels need to be replenished and this is where Tamsin Palmer, an eventer from Stockport, found British Horse Feeds’ Fibre-Beet to be very useful for her horse, Bazaars Twister (stable name Twink).
After the pair had finished schooling or after lessons, Tamsin was always keen to make sure Twink was drinking, but like most of us it is rare to actually see when our horses drink.
Normally horse owners can gage how much water is consumed from water buckets but automatic drinkers both in the field and in the stable makes it more difficult.
Tamsin added some soaked Fibre-Beet to Twink’s water bucket, to entice him to drink more and hydrate again.
Because Twink was already fed on Fibre-Beet, Tamsin knew he would take to it straight away.
