Angry How to deal with a bucket pooper?

Ok so I have an interesting problem-
I've seen a lot of people who have problems with their horses pooping in their water buckets in their stalls, but since I've moved my horse to pasture board, he still poops out the water bucket out in the pasture. I'm sure his pasture mate doesn't appreciate a nice steamy one in his water.
Right now, the bucket is on the ground, and there's not really any place to move it up higher, nor is it even high enough now that he may be pushing his butt up to it, he's definitely just practicing his aim. I'm no longer amused that he's managed to potty train himself. Any advice?

I have the same problem. We have two 40-gallon buckets outside under the awning, and Lenox craps in them all the time, making me drag the water bucket out into the pasture, sloshing yummy poop and water the whole way, and refill it, only to have it re-pooped in :roll:. I'm going to get a net to keep out there and just quickly scoop the yuckas out when I don't have that much time, and do my thorough cleanings when I do.

I do not think it is really possible to potty train them not to manure in certain places.

How about offering something else for him to manure in?

I would probably leave the one water tub where it is and place another a few feet away and see what he does...

And change his name to Rebecca Black - "there's water in the front bucket, water in the back bucket, gotta make my mind up, which bucket should I pick?"

LOLL chilaa! I can't STAND her.

Funny story.

We had a Paint Clydesdale a year ago who would poop on his windowsill. No pics unfortunately, but one of him for his size . I'd come in every morning and routinely clean the crap off the windowsill!

I don't have any bucket poopers, but do have one that is a little funny about his water bucket. Dynasty has to have a super clean water bucket, if he gets hay or any dirt in it he will put his feed pan on top of it. If I clean it he won't put it back there, if I don't he puts the pan back as soon as I take it off....cracks me up!

I should get video! He's a character for sure! He's the most laid back wimpy stud I've ever met/owned. He keeps his stall spotless, only poops in one spot, won't go outside if it's even sprinkling. I can't even imagine what he'd do if he had poop in his bucket! He's a big baby and I love him to pieces :)
