How warm should my water be during winter to help ensure my horses drink enough?

To maximize water intake, water temperature should be between 45 and 65° F. To help maintain water temperature, it is a good idea to house the water source inside a barn or lean-to if possible. If the water source needs to be outside, make sure the water source is protected from the wind and freezing rain and/or snow.
