As a luxury horse stall manufacturer, we understand the importance of providing comfort and convenience for both horses and yourself. One crucial aspect of horse care is ensuring a reliable and accessible water supply.
Water is essential to our horses' wellbeing and longevity. This is especially important during hot weather months as horses must always have access to clean, fresh water. Proper hydration can keep many health issues at bay such as muscle cramps, colic, and renal damage. For these reasons, It’s essential to factor in water access when planning your barn project.
To meet the diverse needs of our clients, we offer two excellent options for integrating water into your horse stall design: our Automatic Waterer System and our Integrated Water Lines. In this blog post, we will explore these options, highlighting their features, benefits, and considerations, to help you make an informed decision for your horse stalls.
Option 1: Automatic Waterer Systems
Our Automatic Waterer Systems are designed to provide your horses with a constant supply of water, effortlessly and without manual intervention. Here's how it works:
Continuous water supply: Our Automatic Waterers are connected to a reliable water source. This ensures a steady flow of fresh water at all times. It eliminates the need for manual water refills, saving time, and effort.
Convenience: Horses can access water whenever they need it.This promotes hydration, good health, and reduces the risk of dehydration. It is particularly ideal for busy equestrian facilities or when horses are stabled for extended periods. Our Automatic Waterer Systems also feature a new water consumption meter that displays, in gallons, how much water your horse is drinking their Automatic Waterer.
Hygiene and cleanliness: Each Automatic Waterer is built with a stainless steel bowl. This bowl is easily removable and allows you to empty, clean, and sterilize the bowl away from the waterer. This eliminates water spills in the horse stall, but also allows you to keep your horse's water source clean.
Durability and reliability: In addition, our Automatic Waterers are built with stainless steel or aluminum housing which ensures your Waterers look new in the horse after years of use. Our Waterers are built to withstand the demands of horse barns. They are designed to be sturdy, resistant to damage, and require minimal maintenance.
Last but not least, our Automatic Waterer Systems include an optional heater for colder climates. This provides ice-free water in the coldest conditions
Aesthetically pleasing: When clients choose this option, our horse stall fronts are then designed to incorporate built-in channels that enable water lines to be discreetly installed. This integration maintains the visual appeal of your horse stalls without compromising functionality.
Measured water supply: Integrated water lines are equipped with strategically placed water spigots along the aisle, enabling horse owners to provide water to their horses in a measured manner. This is especially useful for managing water intake for horses on specific diets or when monitoring individual water consumption.
Accessibility and ease of use: With water spigots conveniently located along the aisle, horse owners can easily access the water supply without entering the stalls. This promotes safety, as it minimizes the need to interact directly with the horses while offering them a controlled water source.
Versatility: Integrated water lines can be customized to accommodate specific preferences and requirements. Whether you have a small private barn or a large equestrian facility, these systems can be tailored to suit your needs.
When choosing between the Automatic Waterer System and Integrated Water Lines, consider the following factors:
Usage and horses in your barn: We recommend to asses the number of horses in your barn, their individual needs, and the frequency of stall usage to determine the appropriate water supply solution.
Maintenance and cost: Evaluate the long-term maintenance requirements and associated costs for each option. Automatic waterers may require more maintenance but offer greater convenience. In contrast, integrated water lines are more simple to maintain, but may involve a higher upfront installation cost.
Water quality: Ensure the water supply meets the necessary quality standards to safeguard your horses' health. Consider installing appropriate filtration systems if needed.
Both the Automatic Waterer System and Integrated Water Lines options offer unique advantages for providing water to your horses in a luxury horse stall setting. The choice ultimately depends on your specific requirements, preferences, and budget. You can also read up further on different feed options for your horse stalls.
