Your Opinion on Feeding Buckets?

I'm going to be moving my horses to my backyard soon, meaning that we have to figure everything out for the barn set up. Anyway, I've been to many different barns and they all have different ways of feeding their horses. Some places use just regular water buckets, some use grain pans on the floor, and some use a triangular plastic bucket on the wall about the height of the horse's chest. What do you guys prefer?

Are you going to be keeping the horse stalled, stall at feeding times or on 24/7 turnout?

I'll be bringing them in their stalls for feeding.

I like the rubber pans. Durable, safe, easy to clean, and the horse eats with his head down in the natural position.

Okay, thanks! That's also why I don't like hay racks, that isin't the horse's natural eating position.

Rubber pans on the ground is item to be destroyed by one of my horses, the other is ok with it. So I have resorted to using old leadropes and tying a bucket to the post so he can't grab ahold of it, stomp it and throw it over the fence.

I use a rubber pan for my gelding and just take it back and put it in the feed room when he's done eating. My mare has an over the fence feeder which unless tied down gets thrown all over the pasture b

Haha! I knew a horse who would turn his grain pan upside down then stand on it with his front legs. Lol Luckily my horses don't really do that.
