Frozen Water Troughs. Good!? Not so much !!!!!

Hi everyone

So Ole Man Winter has arrived and wiped away any memory that I may have had about mild temps and sunny skies.
I was out at the barn and froze my a$$ off. Yesterday I was only there for an hour tops. It took hours for my toes to defrost LOL

This is the time of year when the water freezes over in the troughs. There is no way that extension cords could be run to all of the paddocks either. Not only is that not safe, the electric bill would be through the roof! PSEG Long Island would have a field day ;P

So I have been surfing the internet for ideas to build cheap but efficient solar warmers for the troughs. I found this one on Mother Earth News. Build a Solar Stock tank

We would need approximately 15-16 of these. The cost is estimated at about $185.00 to $200.00 each for materials.
At the high end it would cost us $3200.00 for 16 Solar Heaters.

If you would like to help with this project we would appreciate your efforts. You can donate towards the purchase of materials by going to the donate link on the website .
Do it in a pet's memory or a loved one.  Just make a note that it's for the Solar Heater in the purpose. Let us know if you are sponsoring one for someone specific.

This could really be an awesome accomplishment.
