    All my empty buckets usually end up being used as water buckets for the dogs.

    Faceman, that reminded me of a neighbor that had a huge Rott. That preferred a large smooth river rock as a playtoy....as she got older her teeth came out or were smooth..lol

    Not sure if dogs will play with the buckets but they enjoy a small empty water bottle occasionally!

    Good ideas guys, thanks!

    I use an old supplement bucket for my morning sickness. Fun days.

    -picking raspberries & blackberries, they are a good fit to hang off the 4-wheeler bars
    -Pre-mixed & measured meals for the horses when on the road or at a show
    And don't forget to add, YOU ALSO put them on your head & dance around. Admit it!

    I have difficulty throwing out reusable containers of any description.

    I end up just putting stuff in them. Buckles. Buttons. Paper clips. Duct tape. Pens. Beads. The list is endless.

    My daughter does. I prefer to skip and sing up and down the barn aisle

    *I also reuse as a treat bucket
    *for other supplements that come in crappy bags large sizes
    *A tack cleaning bucket
    *use as a feed scoop for feed, the ones I have hold the same amount as large scoop, then I don't need to buy a bunch of scoops or be always looking in the feed tubs for the scoop, great for soaking small amounts of beet pulp or bran mash's
    * water bucket for dogs

    LOVE the idea of using for making individual meals well on the road

    And when they get worn out, broken or I just have to many I recycle them

    I get two of the same size, and put rails on them. To make very small jumps/cavalettis for my mare to walk over, for some light work to strengthen her back.

    My husband uses them for 'stuff' usually tools that he won't find at a later date and curse.

    Alex, I wish I could double like that. Mine does the same thing and then asks me where he put it.
