• bring the water too the horse
  • Well if it doesn't want to drink, even if you brought it to the water, what are you going to do to it? You can't make it drink the water if it doesn't want to.
  • Because we don't have the POWER. We can make the horse do a lot of stuff but it's in his POWER to drink or not to drink.
  • It's not thirsty.
  • Horses only drink from their own water stall. They don't want to drink elsewhere:)
  • You can lead a horse more or less anywhere if it trusts you but it will only drink if it wants and from a familiar water trough. It is much too big to try to force it to do anything it does not wish.
  • Yes, I can do that always. I can even feed him, or pour a gallon of water into his mouth by force. The only thing I can't do is make him swallow that! I don't control his muscle and intention. If he never wants to swallow and shuts up his throat, then I can't help??
  • You gotta shotgun them some from a fat joint so they get all cotton mouothed and drink that shizz yo!! Or slip them a salt cube : )
  • can..but he has to be VERY THIRSTY. We had a horse that got shocked by a short in his water troff and he was afraid of water for a long time. It took several days to confince him that the water wasn't going to hurt him. But, finally, with enough love and care and encouragment..he drank.
  • I can. I can also beat dead ones.
  • First deprive it from any water then right before the race, give him all the water he needs. That's the best i can think off.
  • Toss in a good bit of Stoli, ice and a lemon twist and see what happens! Works for this horse...or is that horse's ass? ...oh, never mind, then! :-)
  • Because they are usually on the wagon!!
  • Ever tried to make a horse drink? There's your answer.
  • You can bring a horse to water and make it drink (if you put apples in the water yo...:).
  • I can. You can too but you have to be damn strong.
  • Because they are smart enough to only drink when they are thirsty. If you are standing in your kitchen and there is a glass of water there do you drink it if you aren't thirsty?
  • Just like you can't bring a person to water and make him drink. I mean you could shove it down his throat, but you can't force him to swallow it. Actually im sure some one will have a smart comment to this lol but you get my jist.
  • 1) "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink Meaning: An animal, and by implication a person, will only do what it/he wants to do. Origin: This is one of the older proverbs in the language and dates back to at least 1546 when it was included in John Heywood's A dialogue conteinyng the nomber in effect of all the prouerbes in the Englishe tongue: "A man maie well bring a horse to the water, But he can not make him drinke without he will."" Source and further information: 2) "John threw his hands up in the air and barked, "I don't get it, I did everything, our product is clearly the best on the market". His outburst was soon followed by a long sigh, "it just goes to prove", he said, "you can bring a horse to water, but you can't make him drink" John's boss, looking out over the glasses on the end of his nose, tilted his head forward and offered John a valuable lesson he has never forgotten, "Sonny", he said, "your job is not to bring the horse to water… your job is to make him thirsty"" Source and further information:
  • becaseu he already had three shots of Patron at the last watering hole and he needs an hour of downtime.
  • because it must be led!
