For 20+years, I hauled water in buckets to my herd of 15 school horses, or wrestled with the homemade lids on my watertubs, trying to keep all that expensive electrically-heated water from steaming into Vermont’s -30 degree winter mornings. Last year, though I was still very skeptical, I was also very tired, so I bought two drinking posts as a last resort to my annual winter “drinking problem”. Each post was installed at the center of a pie-shape made up of four separate paddocks, so each separate post can serve up to eight horses. I am now happily weak as a kitten and it’s all due to the Drinking Post! Many thanks, Mike, for your prompt service and fine product.
