I am a breeder of Shetland sheep dogs, so with multiple dogs I need a water trough. I had been using a goat trough for quite a while but it was supposed to be hooked onto a fence not sit on a floor. After one too many times of the dogs tipping the trough over and flooding the kitchen, I found PortaTrough and replaced it. So far the dogs have found it to be good. Great size too.

I purchased 4 of the Porta Trough 3's, I have deer, Canada geese, multiple species of ducks, ravens and other critters on my property. I wanted a safe clean way to feed and water and these troughs are wonderful. They are lite to move, yet very strong. They also clean up very easily. Thank you for a great product.

We have a large and 2 small troughs. They are easy to move, clean, and suit our sheep perfectly for water and feed.

My ram lambs still try to stand in it. The short one is long enough for my 4 ram lambs to feed at once.

I use this feeder for my 3 chickens and two ducks, and it works well enough, although it does have some faults.
Some things I DO like about it is it's deeper than I thought, It would work well for water but I use it as a kind of trough. It's also very heavy, I can imagine it might be hard for small hogs and sheep to knock around.
What I DON'T like about it is it's VERY overpriced, after all it's only a piece of warped plastic, you guys need to lower the price to maybe 29.00 bucks, not 40. That was my two cents.
