    Mongolian people drink fermented mare's milk, not the fresh stuff. They put it in a kidney shaped flask and strap it to the back of their saddle for awhile. When it starts squeaking, they know it's properly fermented and ready to drink.

    It tastes sort of like beer mixed with milk (which makes sense, but it's still a startling taste ).

    I wonder what one would use powdered horse milk for...

    I'm somewhat disappointed - it isn't real. Here's the front page of the site: http://344design.typepad.com/photos/...tmmarquee.html

    More info here:

    None of it horse related, unfortunately, but the last link is pretty fabulous. The actual talk is amazing, and the wider site is a great time sink of fascinating things. I've never looked, but there might be something horse related in there.

    I can't remember the show name - one of Gordon Ramsay's - and Ramsay did a bit on mare's milk as a cooking ingredient and for drinking. Apparently you CAN buy mare;s milk in Belgium, and a few specialty shops in England.

    The F Word.

    I saw that episode. Ugh, but I also don't drink cow's milk.

    Rwminds me of the time I was in Italy buying a few items at a local shop. There was a baby food display right next to the checkout stand. The baby food containers had cute little pictures of chickens and cows and lambs on them Then I saw the one with a cute little pony on it. While I have eaten horse before, I still found the cute little cartoon pony somewhat disturbing.

    I found it while searching on the web for something totally not related to horses at all. I just found that it was somewhat odd and yes a bit disturbing.
    I guess if you ever need any milk you can go out to your mare and get some assuming she is or just had a foal. Not for me though.
    I thought the can maybe a joke though because it said no ponies only horses! LOL
