Advice from the weekly column “Horse”

Perth, AUS, August 1906: The question of watering before or after feeding has never been settled. A leading: English authority states that horses should never be watered after feeding, but always before, especially if the feed, is grain. If a horse is very thirsty give him water, aud then wait a short time before feeding. If possible horses should always have access to water. They will drink less and there is much less danger of indigestion or cholera. If a horse is exhausted from over-exercise the supply of cold water should be limited. If water is tepid a much larger amount may be allowed.
