I highly recommend Nelson waterers. Their initial cost is higher but I guarantee it is worth it in the long run. They have excellent customer service, repair kits(which it's rarely needed) are universal (both wall mount and free standing), they ship them to you within 24 hrs and they are simple to work on. Ours are mounted in the fence line, so they serve two paddocks, so fewer are needed. I feel like a sound like a salesman but walking by and tapping the bowl every morning to make sure it's working rather than buckets,hoses, hammering ice, etc it's amazing.
I also wanted to say, I know nothing about Canadian taxes but here the tax regulations are different for hobby farm vs. horse business. When we do our taxes we have our personal, our farm and our horse farm. If the horses are considered a hobby there are less possible deductions. Like I said, I have no idea what it's like in Canada but may be something you want to look into. Good luck with your adventure!
