To avoid completely full, frozen water troughs and ensure that there is always access to open water (which is hugely important for horses any time of the year) simply fill a jug half full of salt water. It will always float and never freeze. Horses quickly catch on to pushing down this "bobber" to access open water. How simple is that?! We love it!
