Extremely durable buckets
Love these buckets. They are every bit as rugged as stated. Not even sure this would blow over in a high wind!

Durable, good quality and value
We have used these buckets for the last 5 years. They have survived several very destructive horses, 5 frigid winters with ice being cracked out sometimes up to 3 times daily. One even survived a cast horse on it with only the handle needing bent back out. Only one has cracked and needed replaced. The extra gallon capacity is helpful, especially in summer when they drink a lot, and for my half draft it means more room for his head when drinking. This size also has a small ridge that runs around the bottom to hook your fingers on, which is helpful when you toss the contents, as opposed to a smooth bottom.

Good Buckets
What can I say about a bucket? They are fairly durable and will stand up to all but the most determined bucket buster in your barn and if you have to replace one they are inexpensive and won't break your budget.

Useful for Larger Horses
The extra gallon -- 6 instead of 5 -- makes the difference with our Percheron/Thoroughbred crosses if and when they are stalled overnight because of severe winter weather. They don't run out of drinking water. And these stand up to tough use.

Love these bigger buckets
Love these bigger buckets. The only drawback is when they are full, they are heavy! One filled up with water seems to be enough for my large horses for overnight even on hot nights. I've only found an empty bucket once and it was from my boy playing in it. He gets two now since he likes to splash his water around.

My top choice in buckets
These six gallon buckets are incredibly durable, sit tighter against the wall than other name brand buckets, have a larger top opening for horses with big heads, and hold more. Very pleased with this purchase, and will buy more as I need them.

Best Buckets money can buy!
These 6 gallon buckets are the best you will ever find. I've used these buckets from Horse.com for 10 or 11 years. I still use the same, original buckets and they are still in great shape. Horse.com is the only place I've found that has 6 gallon buckets, which truly is the perfect size. They are slightly larger than a 5 gallon so the horse can fit their head in easier than a 5 gallon. The extra gallon of water is perfect to get through a hot summer day to ensure the horse doesn't run out. And if you need to carry water, you are able to get where you need to and still have at least 5 gallons. The same scenerio with a 5 gallon bucket, after sloushing you arrive with only 4 gallons, which isn't enough.

ended all problems for my destructive horses
i have build slow feeders on the ground, and the horses would tap dance in them and destroyed them. they flatten horse balls in one day, and break toys within a week. i have tried everything, my horses are so destructive! in the summer we dont stall them. we let eat as a herd and come and go from the pasture and eat from several community feeders in the large arena. however, to feed their grains and complete feeds have been a nightmare. they destroy anything screwed in, or nailed in to posts(out in the arena) or connected to their stalls. i purchased these buckets along with the bucket straps. this FINALLY ended all problems. i will be using these in their stalls for the winters months too. they can kick them around and they are still in great shape, when i have accidently left one off the strap and in the arena for them to kick around for the day. big enough for my mustang who has a head like a draft to get to the bottom to get his grain. (he is almost 16 hands and 1100lbs) i will be purchasing more for water buckets to keep in their stalls. love, love, love!! my mustang and his buddies cant destroy them and i am one happy horse owner. i have read other reviews where they have withstood draft horses stomping on them, so, i will stay with these. not too bad for price actually, considering they seem to last for years from other reviews! i also love the many colors and sizes. had i known, i could have saved hundreds. such an easy way to feed and water and with the extra gallon, fits so much in there and has a wide opening for their faces. 16" across. like i said my huge headed mustang can get to the bottom no problem to eat every piece of grain.

Horses have an easier time eating and it stays more still against feeding post

Needed a bucket for the trailer so I don't have to keep taking stuff from the barn and putting it in the trailer every time I go out. I liked the bucket was a larger size.

Buckets for water for the horses when traveling
LORI L on May 21, 2014
You are the only store that sells 6 gallon water buckets. I like to hang 2 in each of my 5 stalls.
GLORIA C on May 4, 2014
These buckets are great to have in the stall, paddock or carry around in the trailer. They are sturdy and durable.
MANUEL O on Apr 24, 2014
This bucket will be attached to Fortiflex Wall Bracket along with the float I will attach to the bucket for an automatic waterer.

Will hot glue repair cracks in these pails?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't know if they can be repaired, but you might want to check with Fortiflex. They guarantee their products for several years. they replaced a bucket that my horse destroyed.. Details are on their web site
Does this bucket have the little lip on the bottom to make it easier to dump out?
Carole M on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: NO, item does not have that feature. Just the flat back side.
