As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Double L's Better Bucket is an ergonomic feeder that is excellent for horses, cattle, and other livestock. Due to the Better Buckets tapered sides, the feed funnels toward the back of the bucket making feed and grain more accessible and reduces animal behavioral problems. The Better Bucket also fits in a corner or on a flat wall with either a traditional wall bracket or snap hook to hang your better bucket.

The Better Bucket is made of durable, impact resistant, high-density polyethylene with smooth, finished edges and a heavy duty handle.

Favorite Features

  • Angular design accommodates the animal's facial structure
  • Flat back provides stability against a wall or fence
  • Fits in a corner or a traditional wall

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Herd Feeding I love these buckets! I have three horses in my herd and typically only one of them gets to eat all his grain (plus the other's feed). This bucket allows my dominant eater to finish his grain without getting frustrated and pushing the other guys off their feed. Now everyone gets to eat. Horses are happy and I'm happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Large Bucket I bought this bucket for my horse that is being stalled at night. This bucket is perfect for her grain feeding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse is much more content Only had this bucket for a couple weeks. I was using a flatback 20 quart and my TB would toss it around, swing it, and in general just bang it around. He dropped a good 25% off his grain due to just swinging the bucket. I hang this one from the same bucket strap and he doesn't knock this one around at all. I seriously think the other flatback style was uncomfortable for him (the handle pushed on his faces/eyes). He just munches away now. Don't see this bucket pressing anywhere on his big head haha I am a fan! Seems durable, but have never had issues with durability in any type of bucket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shocked! It works-he is not cribbing Wow! I cannot believe this bucket. I bought two because my horse breaks his grain bucket all the time because he cribs on it so bad. So far he has not cribbed- nor has he broken the bucket. What am amazing design.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good feed bucket I use these buckets for feed and I like that I can hang them up like water buckets so I can easily take them down to clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bucket! I have one horse with a really large head and one who likes to fling his feed everywhere, this bucket works wonders for both. I use it at shows, hang it in a corner. It is MUCH easier for the big boy to get to his feed, and much more difficult for the young one to scoop feed out or turn the bucket over.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feed bucket!!! We love this bucket!! I swear Ali is happier at meal times because its much easier for her to her quite large head in the bucket! She seems to eat slower and no knocking around the bucket. Worth the price!!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
