Installing an automatic horse waterer was one of the best things I had ever done. No more carrying heavy water buckets or tripping over the water hose. The water never becomes stagnant because the basin is constantly filling with fresh water. During the winter months the water in the automatic horse waterer does not freeze so regardless of the amount of snow or ice you have, your horse will always have fresh water available to drink. Horses are substantial in size so they require a substantial amount of water. Giving them the freshest water available is a great way to keep them hydrated.
