I have used these buckets for many years and they wear like iron. I used this size bucket for my miniature horses or regular size horse foals. It is so easy to attach to a fence and it really works great to introduce foals to food. Mine have been able to eat right next to mom with no interference. I recommend these buckets very highly; I won't ever buy another brand.
"The Better Bucket"
I bought this bucket in May for my yearling foal. I came in one morning and it was torn almost in half but was still on the wall. I loved this for feeding purposes but need one that is more resilient
We mounted these IN THE CORNER of the stalls WITH 3 eyehooks/double end snaps. WORKS GREAT. These were not meant for one hook. Our 18 hand horses have plenty of headroom, no more spilled food, and best of all: easy to clean. Just wipe with soft cloth (no brushes) made damp with water & white vinegar. Comes clean like new. We also like that we no longer deal with the "snap on ring guards" on the other feeders. This feed bucket may look obtuse, but we have replaced all feeders and we are very happy.
I had this bucket less than 24 hours and my horse got his nostril hung where the handle is attached to the bucket. He ripped his nostril wide open requiring a $200 vet bill to get him stitched up and a weeks worth of antibiotics. Do not buy this bucket! The handle where it attaches to the bucket is an open U shape instead of closed. Dangerous!
"A Better Bucket"
"These buckets are not safe. Where the wire handle bends after connecting with the plastic bucket, it﻿ does not pinch shut. One horse at our barn got his nose pinched in it and ripped as he struggled to get free. My horse has got two blankets caught in this ""unclosed pinch"" and tore them both up. DO NOT buy these buckets. Called their company (Steve) bad bad bad service. "
"Best Bucket Yet"
This is the best bucket I have used yet! No issues except that my horses are not wasting feed, not moving the bucket around, and seem very comfortable! Will definitely buy more! Thanks for offering this!
I was very excited to get this bucket as it seemed to be a better way to feed. I ordered one as did my two sisters. The shape is great BUT, we hung them with bucket hangers on a wide board so they would not move around. Within two days they started splitting at the back center and by the third day they were completely unusable and we had to take them down. Wasted money! Guess the plastic and handle area were not heavy duty enough to withstand being pushed on while the horses ate. I was very disappointed!!
"The Better Bucket"
These buckets are long overdue. My horses no longer bump their eyes, beat-up the bucket and eat their grain much more comfortably with the Better Bucket. Will be buying more.
"Great feed bucket"
This is a great bucket for feed. I would like to see a larger size for water.
I used the bucket for the first time. The postive is that is was easier for my filly to get to the grain. The negative is that when I hung it on the bucket hook, it kept swinging around. I could tell she was getting aggetated by it moving. It would be perfect if it was a hook over bucket with the same style.
"Best Feeder Ever"
This is the most efficient and useful bucket I have owned. It saves feed, creates comfort and overall a great value. I just wish It had been invented sooner!
