Where do you find them? I only have electricity in the barn when I am in there doing chores, never when I am not there. Solar would be great!

I have power to my barn but don't use heated water buckets... I carry hot water to each of the 3 pens before work at 4 am after work at 2:30 pm and at bedtime at 6pm....I do keep their water buckets against inside walls in their sheds which helps as I've never had froze solid pails yet :)
Solar would certainly be helpful though :)

We give them warm water in the morning, and at night. Sometimes we add juice to encourage them to drink before it gets cold. :)
