Keep Water Buckets and Tanks from Freezing this Season

Depending on where you live, freezing temperatures may be a fact of life for you.  You can't change the weather, but you can keep your horses' water supply from freezing.  This is critical to their health.  Even in cold temperatures, you horse needs 5-10 gallons of fresh water a day.  Many horses do not drink as much as they should during winter, and studies have shown that they will drink more when slightly warmer water is provided.  
A heated hose will allow you to re-fill water buckets easily.  This means fresh, warmer water, which will encourage your horse to drink more.  Putting a stock tank heater, or bucket heater in their water container will keep the water from freezing throughout the day and night.  Look for a heater that has a thermostat, so it only runs when it needs to.  And watch the wattage!  In a lot of barns, it is easy to overwhelm the electrical system with too many high wattage heaters.  You'll pop your circuit breaker, and then have no heated water! Use as small a heater as you can, to get the job done.
