Hi all,
Does anyone have any experience with using a Mirafount ball type waterer in a horse pasture? We recently installed a double so that it spans 2 pastures (one for cattle, one for horses). We have only one horse at the moment and she doesn't seem to have figured out how to use it. The cattle got the hang of it quickly, but the horse..... We are now leading her over and "helping" her move the ball. She's not typically a slow learner, so I'm wondering if it's some sort of tactile, nose sensitivity isssue with horses. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Carrie

I can't help you with the "nose sensitivity" thing. I can, however, tell you that we have a Ritchie double waterer that has the ball in both sides, and all of our horses figured out how to push the ball down to get a drink in a very short time.
