[RC] Ice Water Please Rather Than Other?!? - Val Nicoson

OK, I'm really confused on this one...perhaps someone
with more enlightenment can explain.  BTW the two
horses are stalled at night on really cold nights,
with hay and heated water buckets.

Released them this morning to go out and what do they
want?  Ice Water!!  There's a stock tank with heated
water and a large muck bucket with iced water in it. 
They choose the iced water...never mind it is
completely frozen over.  They are willing to raise
hoof to break it.  I did them the honors with a
mallet.  
Then one of the two drinks quite a bit and the other
just a sip or two.  
Is this normal behavior or what is going on here?  We
provide them with warmed water and they want the iced
water instead?  
Yes, have checked the tank and there is no indication
of electrocution danger.
Thanks....
