As of last weekend, all the horses at my DIY yard must now be brought in overnight, but can be out by day. Quite thankful as it is so cold!!
I have noticed my horse drinking lots of water in the last week, much more so than normal. His bucket is empty in the mornings and then he goes straight to drink from the water trough when he is turned out - this is not usual behaviour for him.
As far as i can work out, the only 2 things that have changed in his routine are;
1.He is now eating unsoaked hay overnight (but he will be on haylage soon)
2. I started him on Arthri Aid joint supplement 2 weeks ago - he is 18 years old
Can anyone shed any light on why he might be drinking more than normal? thanks
