At Broken Spoke our ponies have a favorite watering hole....they like to sip and spill our wines!
Do Equines like wine?
Well actually Horses and ponies have been drinking various fermented products for millennia in various amounts and it is quite safe. In the normal digestive process the bacteria and protozoa in the equine's gut ferment the whole grains and fiber in order to aid the digestive process. This is why they can eat hay or raw grains and we cannot--humans do not have a fermentation vat in their cecum (actually human do not have a cecum, all they have is an appendix). Source: Equisearch. Below you will find other worldly facts on ponies and some conversational items about the wine lovin ponies at our farm.
