Overview

Why We Love This

Double L's Better Bucket is an ergonomic feeder that is excellent for horses, cattle, and other livestock. The bucket's tapered sides cause the feed to funnel toward the back of the bucket, making feed and grain more accessible and reduces animal behavioral problems. The Better Bucket fits in a corner or on a flat wall and can be hung with either a traditional wall bracket or snap hook. The Better Bucket is built to last with a durable, impact resistant, high-density polyethylene with smooth, finished edges, and a heavy-duty handle.

The Better Bucket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 162.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it I bought one of these for shows because my horse was either not eating his grain in a regular bucket or tossing it all around the stall in a ground feeder. This bucket was exactly what we needed, I like that it is so easy for them to reach in to. Wish I had found it sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up well mine was outside all winter and didnt crack or break - it was filled full of grain daily (soak the grain) and did amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safer for eyes I bought this bucket for field fed horses. The design reduces the risk of eye injury compared to smaller buckets. This bucket is holding up to hard use in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tried 2 buckets I have 8 stalls so i bought 2 of these better buckets to see if i would like them, and put them in with horses that are the HARDEST on their buckets-i.e. knocking, kicking, nudging..and these buckets have held up now (been 4 months). so far I am happy. i will be ordering 6 more when they come back in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big! I bought this for my horses feed buckets. I was using regular round water buckets, but both my horses would lift their heads out after a bite and drop half their grain on the floor. This bucket is so roomy with a sloped front. They both now keep their heads in their grain buckets until it's all gone. No more wasted grain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bucket My gelding previously had a corner feeder and would stir up his feed and fling it out of his bucket. I tried this bucket to see if it would help. It has made a huge difference. He now eats quietly with little to no feed spilled. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Wasted Feed! This bucket allows the horse to comfortably reach all feed without spilling or wasting feed. Seems big and bulky at first, but the horse's comfort while eating is not an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feed Bucket!! I purchased 2 of these feeders for my horse who had undergone extensive dental surgery. I hoped it would make it easier for him to reach in for all the left over grain! He has a large head and although he did ok with his old bucket, I felt more room would prevent him from bumping sore areas around his jaw. Note that they do protrude out due to their slanting design for ease of reaching their food. It seemed too big in the beginning, but they are working out just fine. They are deep as well, so probably not great for ponies, etc. I am very pleased with them overall!! They are also well made in my opinion !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design Easy for the horses to eat out of. The design of the bucket is nice so any size horse can get to their grain. Cleaning is easy and fits well on the fence. They also are made really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy bucket My horses are more relaxed eating from this bucket due to the shape , it doesn't make them feel claustrophobic.
