Frozen Troughs

Hey does anyone know a web site or something that has water heaters to put in the pasture troughs to keep them from freezing?

Tractor Supply Co usually has them. Tractor Supply Company - Home

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

depending on what part of the country you live in you should be able to walk in to any feed/farm supply store and find one there.

I like the sinking ones like this one They have a thermostat so they shut off when its above freezing and they sit on the bottom of the tank so I don't worry about little burnt horsey lips. I run the cord through a piece of PVC pipe and then down to the bottom of the tank.

I love this site, they have lots of stuff that comes in handy for all kinds of pets, not only horses.
