I think ive got this but not 100% sure.
if a horse can heat 11.6kg ice water T=273k to 355K in 2.5 hours how high could it raise a 217kg weight in 2.5 min? heres what ive done q_{p}=mc_{p,s}dt=(1.16E4 g)(4.18 J K^{1}g_{1})(82K)=3.976E6 J (3.976E6 J/2.5hr)(1hr/60min)(2.5min)=6.627E4 J h=w/mg=6.627E4 J/((217 kg)(9.81m s^{2}))=31.1m does this seem legit? we working with all this rev/irrrev work and transfer and im getting really mixed up by simple stuff but if p=const then it would be irreversible right? any suggestions would be great if im way off track Thnaks

Looks OK to me (I haven't checked the numbers, just skimmed the logic), but your comment about reversibility/irreversibility makes me wonder if there is not some context to the question which makes it more complicated. But if treated literally as posted  its OK.
