Kaboot hates cold water. Hardly touches a stream, but give him a tire
track where the water is shallow and warm and he'll drink and drink and
drink! I did a triathlon and the guy handing out water had ice water...I
couldn't drink it but I will chug a lug room temp water...so I guess to
each his own. At least my horse and I are compatible. He and I both
handle heat and humidity very well...to the point that my students have
to beg me to turn on the air conditioner. :-)
