Deathly Ill Horse Saved By Beer

Beer: Isn't there anything it can't do?
IT sounds like a load of XXXX but beer saved this horse's life after he was struck down with a bout of potentially deadly colic.

Diamond Mojo, a six-year-old Australian waler, had been given up for dead by his owner Steve Clibborn after being struck down with a bout of potentially deadly colic.

So, as desperate men do in desperate times, Steve turned to the bottle not for himself, but for his horse.

"I had pretty much kissed him goodbye," he said.

"I had spent 23 hours straight with him but nothing worked and then I remembered an old bush tale that said you could feed them beer.

"I don't know whether I really believed it or not but it was worth a shot and as soon as he had that beer, he burped and perked right up. So I gave him another couple."

Over the following days, Steve repeated the dose using Queensland's own XXXX lager until his prized endurance horse rediscovered his mojo.
Unfortunately the horse has now taken up smoking and hanging around with loose fillies.

Pretty soon, that horse is going to be sitting on a couch all day watching porn and waiting for a welfare check.

So someone actually poured the beer back in the horse and made the world a better place? :-P

Might want to reconsider this incident for adverts....

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy - Benjamin Franklin.

And I concur.
