Meet Gallagher

My name is Gallagher. I'm an Irish Sport horse gelding and I had a drinking problem. It all came to a head on my way to the USEA American Eventing Championships in Lexington, Kentucky. We were traveling from my home in Louisiana with some barn mates and my horse-Mom was at the wheel.

We occasionally stopped for fuel and water breaks but, YUK! The smell of the water was horrible at the places we stopped along the way. I didn't dare drink any of that water! It wasn't anything like my water at home. I discussed it with my barn mates and we made a pact. None of us were going to drink a drop. It was a boycott!!!

My horse-Mom was flipping out, but I really didn't see a problem. She brought me some stuff that she added to the water. YOWZA!!!! It smelled just like freshly-cut hay! I took a taste and I couldn't stop at one sip or even two. I slurped it down and emptied the bucket – two gallons of water went down nice and easy.

Well, horse-Mom was beside herself. She was so happy. She tried it on my barn mates and they all caved in and couldn't help themselves. The slightly sweet, slightly salty green goodness got the best of them. She even tried it on me when I hauled to another show. I saw that bucket coming and I was all in! I heard it has some good stuff in it, too, but I'm in it for the heavenly hay bouquet and sweet-salty flavor.

My drinking problem is a thing of the past. Now, I look forward to drinking my water at horse shows and after workouts. Horse-Mom is much happier these days. She refers to this water as my water – Gallagher's Water.

Gallagher is a sugar-intolerant horse. A lot of care went into making this product so that he could enjoy it every day without fear of harming his health and the health of other horses.

Gallagher Update

Gallagher - the inspiration and namesake for Gallagher’s Water - was recently diagnosed with Cushing's disease.  A likely candidate, Gallagher displayed all the typical signs. His vet decided that additional blood work was needed in order to get a clear understanding of his health situation. Previous testing had produced a negative result, but he was still considered “borderline". As a precaution, he had already been on a low starch, low sugar diet. Now we know the true picture and we can begin him on a daily medication in order to help him out even more.

For almost two years, Gallagher has had a daily serving of Gallagher's Water which has provided him with many benefits: replenishing fluids lost during workouts and hauling were the most crucial. Gallagher has always produced only moderate amounts of sweat. His handlers and trainers have noticed a huge improvement in the amount of sweat he now produces - even through the hottest months of the year in the brutal heat and humidity in South Louisiana. This improvement has certainly been a welcome relief!

Now that Gallagher has been officially diagnosed with Cushing’s, he will be switched over to the No Sugar Gallagher's Water formula exclusively. He has had both the Original Formula and the No Addend Sugar Formula and it does not make any difference to him at all. Like most horses, he is all about that rich, creamy alfalfa flavor which sets this product apart from all the others.We will continue to monitor his condition, but in all likelihood, he will not miss a beat.  He will continue to be shown and trail ridden and do all of the things he has done. We look forward to many more years with Gallagher!
