    Mine get fed in buckets hung up on the fence....if they had rubber pan things the 2 would for sure have their grain spilt all over because the pan/tub would be a big toy :)

    Buckets have always worked best for us.

    Interesting hearing what everyone does!

    I feed mine in rubber buckets. I bring them all in to a small section, an divvy out. I like working them every day and use the time for groundwork/dominance. They hardly ever spill their feed. It's a good time to work with my mare standing without a rope and listening to verbal cues/posture to wait with me till the boys are done!

    Playing with buckets? MY BUCKET!

    Many of those ground round pans are designed to set inside a car or truck tire to prevent alot of the flipping and running around problems you guys are haveing. Like this one, will set right inside a 15 inch tire.

    But yeh I use the hang on fence feed tubs, and just stand there when they eat. I have one that gets rambunctious, I wave my hat and yell NO ! He gets the hint. I have chickens and a goat so any food that hits the ground gets ate. He's knocked it off before than stood there and looked at me all sad while the other horses ate. Too bad so sad there genius.

    I figure if they want to tip them over, they can eat it off the ground.
