At shows we always used a heater in a bucket. They are not hard to find if you go to State Line or SStack.com.

Those require a massive amount of amperage. More than what many barns are wired for.

My horses would be incredibly cranky to have a warm bath in the summer time...they actually come up to me on got days to be drenched in the cold water. Then again I'm in OK, summers are painfully hot and humid and UGHHH. 100 straight days of no rain and 100 degree plus weather...worst...summer..everrrrr lol

Yes that is her in my avatar. She is a weird pattern. I guess I was just looking for a way to take the chill off. I bet the thought of cold water bothers me more than it will her.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it. ~Author Unknown

It would only take 30 amps, I don't know what barn wouldn't handle that, a lot have 220 volts 100 amps ran to the barn. Haven't heard of a barn only having 110.

A small tankless water heater requires about 60 amps, but unless you're in an area where the incoming water temperature is high enough, the smaller models won't heat sufficiently - you need a larger more capable unit, and they can easily draw up to 150+ amps. The last electric on demand heater I saw for sale up here required three 60 amp circuits at 220v. 180 amps. Not many barns I know of are wired for 180 amps at 220v.

These ridiculously high power demands are why most tankless systems up here are natural gas.

Most barns can handle them. The one we had was designed for cabins. Worked great - until one of the boarders fried it.
