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?

Thanx

Is there not a local farm supplier where you are?

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.

If there are any pet stores that carry pony supplies they might have water heaters also!

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.

Stupid question????? They say they are good for plastic tubs, but is there a minimum size of plastic tub? Mine are about 25 gallons.

Sorry to butt in on the OP!!!!
