The Best $8 Spent on a Horse

DIY “cool” entertainment for your horses this summer.

As the temperatures continue to rise in the Carolinas, horse owner Faith Jenkins has come up with a clever way to keep her horses cool and entertained this summer! (Note: must be logged in to Facebook to view videos.)

Faith typically uses a hose a spray her horses down, but for the sake of efficiency she tried to come up with an alternative.

The best 8$ I could have spent on these horses !

“Normally I have stuff to do at the barn so I thought, what if I bought a sprinkler to hook up,” Faith said. “I knew I couldn’t put it on the ground so I figured why not tie it to the post. I only used every cowgirl’s duct tape (aka hay string).”

As soon as the sprinkler had been installed and switched on, Faith’s 9-year-old Palomino mare Khaleesi “was in it.” Khaleesi’s pasture mate Nomi likes the new shower system too, but Khaleesi isn’t keen to share, which makes sense, given her name.


Apparently Khaleesi has a dirty butt ! Lol

Lucky for us, the introduction to the sprinkler was so funny that Faith didn’t get much done in the barn. She was grabbing for her camera instead. We love her giggles in the background as she watches Khaleesi and Nomi play.

If you’re thinking about Faith’s water bill and waterlogged pasture, so has she. The sprinkler is only on for short intervals.

Khaleesi just can’t get enough of the sprinkler!

As an added benefit, “They get a little massage from it as well!”

Faith says it’s the best $8 she’s ever spent on her horses.
