I am trying to decide how to best improve our ability to provide the cleanest possible water for the horses in our barns and I would really appreciate hearing about what y'all use at your barn.
Of course, if a horse is a "hay dunker", it's a continual dump/clean process. But what I've noticed about the others is that the most frequent contamination is from bits of grain and/or shavings (from the floor) that get transferred by the horse.
What kind of waterers do y'all use? Buckets hanging on the wall? Automatic waterers? (what kind?) Other alternatives?
I'm just trying to figure out what will keep the water the cleanest in the most time/labor efficient manner. Of course, if every horse had his own personal valet..... <laughing>
Thanks very much for any/all comments!
