We're moving to Bennett Springs/West Swan soon and the only water out to the horses is bore. There's a big tank near the house but I'd rather not use if I can help it. I'm going to get the water tested next week but just wondering if anyone can tell me what the quality is like around that area. Is it okay for the horses to drink? I went out there today and the garden sprinklers were on... smelled a bit funny. Also, will I be able to wash the greys in it without them turning chestnut? There's some stains on the white fence. I've been hosing down and washing with bore water in Gidge for a couple of years and it's sometimes quite yellow out of the hose but haven't had any serious problem with staining.
