Ok so I have these colored buckets right now 17.5 gallons https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/p...-capacity-plastic-bucket-175-gal?cm_vc=-10005 They work pretty well for right now, except I'm going to need something shorter or a secondary solution for baby goats. A 3m old boer kid can usually get water when it's full but I'm not sure about when they are littler, so I'm looking into that. I am debating buying autofills for them but will need to level the buckets better first. We are currently filling all buckets morning and afternoon to keep them full and cool. Ok so the horse has 2 buckets in the winter he doesn't go through more then 1/2 of 1 but in the summer he is drinking more then 1 full bucket a day (which is why he has 2). But I have a 1 month old bottle steer calf that will be going out in the horse field once he is weaned and I'll likely need either another bucket or auto fillers to keep enough water for both. The goats have 1 bucket right now, they don't drink more then about a 1/4 in the winter but over 1/2 in the summer. The issue I'm having here is my 5m doe can't get to the water if it's more then about a 1/4 down. I can put a block so she can reach better. But I'm thinking I need at a second bucket for them as well at least for summer. There are 6 does total including the doeling. The calf, and the wether are sharing 1 bucket in the small pan until the wether goes to butcher and the calf goes to the field. I'm not having any issues with their water right now but I'm sure the cow will start drinking a lot more soon. I don't have an issue filling waters twice a day, but the biggest issue is if it gets forgotten I have very low or empty buckets in the afternoon. Like today I was over thinking this morning and didn't fill anything. The 5 month old doe is ok but started drinking water as soon as it was full enough to reach, and the horse had an empty bucket, but the second was nearly full. So I need a solution (besides auto fillers and adding blocks) more buckets? Bigger buckets? Shorter buckets? Is there something you have that works well for you? Also please keep in mind i live in a high fire area and am at risk for pg&e power shutoffs and on a well. So if power goes out, my well is out too until I can afford a larger generator. So I need to be able to keep enough water in the field if I can't fill buckets. I can fill buckets from the above ground pool if we need too, but that is a last resort. I'm in northern California and it's 111° today, so I have to make sure there is water.
