    Yep, I live in TX too. Know how hot it gets but that doesn't stop my pasture horses from waiting.

    Only my big pasture has automatic waterers and it's not feasible to put in automatic waterers in the stalls right now. We will put them in in the future but I'm in the process of moving off site which is another reason I can't offer a specific horse water 2 or 3 times a day.

    Common guys I was hoping for a little more creativity here!

    How about a ball cap with 2 water bottles attached to straws, lol.
    Creativity AND practicality seems to be tough in this situation. Is the horse pasture boarded or does he have a stall at night?
    If he has a stall, then someone is there 2x a day to feed. He can be offered water then.
    Or have the bucket mounted in such a way that it cannot be knocked around (top and bottom mounted), and high enough that it is hard to splash much out. Then put a ton of straw underneath so even if he splashes he won't be standing in water.
    Or tie his tail to a crane and lower him to the water.
    Other than that, I am tapped.

    At my old barn, we had baskets that were the height of the buckets we put water in. I'm sure water could still be splashed around, but at a certain height I don't think it would affect anything. Look for baskets and regular buckets. Something you might find paint in (DON'T RECYCLE A PAINT BUCKET!!! XD), or one of those buckets restaurants keep condiments in. They're easy to find. As for the basket, check your local hardware or feed stores...
