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

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

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 DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

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

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.
