Question
hello ma'am. i believe that feed for a horse is like fuel for a motor bike. then, what about water for the horse?

Answer
Rohit,

Comparing wrong kind of engine.  Go with a car engine, they have cooling systems too.  Blood carries the fuel components, so acts like a fuel system, also body heat exchange like the radiator in a car.  The horse is a lot more complex organism than the car so comparisons are very much generalized.
