          I was at Lowe's today in the paint section. They had buckets that were mostly plain white. Only the don't store children in bucket label which is probably gov't mandated. No logos. When I saw them I thought of this thread.

            Am I the only one that buys horse buckets at the TSC? I have 2 Home Depot buckets that I use for my ceramic crafts, but for horse stuff like soaking beet pulp, yeah I use colored animal buckets. That and also DH is a very capable shopper and errand runner. He even uses coupons if I have them. I hit the dang lottery with this guy.

              But traditional horse buckets don't have lids. The buckets from Home Depot and Lowes have lids. A friend uses Home Depot buckets to transport water in her trailer. When we go horse camping she puts the dry beet pulp in one with a cover and scoops what she needs for each meal.

              I could see soaking beet pulp with a lid on it to keep out flies or the farm dog could be useful.

                I don't follow TB racing, so was not aware of the adspace on breeches.
                Just a matter of time before someone says "Hmmmm.... that buttspace is much more visible during a race...."

                  Oh I see. I can be such a dim witted dork at times. I soak my beet pulp in my back room. Have a whole wall set up with beet pulp, rice bran, supplements, etc. Mix up every ones personal batch and lug it out to the barn. I guess I just don't think about doing this at the barn. Doesn't every one set up the whole back room of their house for animal care?? What a dunce I can be.

                  And for water storage in a trailer we have a large water tank. So I never thought of that either. DH always has us set up for industrial everything, so I just don't think about theses things because ya know, DHs on it.

                  But I totally get it now. I just had to see it through another lens. Thank you.

                      Way back in the olden days I used to get plain, white, 5 gal pickle buckets from Burger King. It did take a few days to get the pickle odor out. Also got free sawdust by the truckload. The sawmills just wanted it gone. Pull up, fill the bed, drive home. Sigh

                        I remember both of these as well, although we got the pickle buckets from McDs.

                          I wish my husband was still alive to run errands. While he didn't always pick up the exact item I wanted every time, he was always willing and did his best. Plus he had a great eye for noticing something that might come in handy in the barn and grabbing it.

                          And he always kept an eye out at stuff put by the street. He brought home several perfectly good cat carriers and other stuff we needed.

                          The only thing I could not let him do was pick out clothing. He was colorblind and the colors he'd pick out for me were not complementary!

                              Back in the olden days when feed only came in 100# bags. I can still remember when they started doing 50# bags. We were at the Agway (which is sadly now closed down) and I went up to the counter, ordered my feed. The owner says to me do you want 100# bags or 50#s?? To which my DH replied...... give her 100#s she can carry them. You could of heard a pin drop for a few seconds in what was an otherwise busy feed store.

                                I remember the pickle buckets but not where we got them, and 100 # bags of Omolene. I weighed just over 100# myself and thought I was all that and a bag of chips for toting them. Nowadays some of the feed I get comes in 40# bags and my back is so weak I have to ask for help with carryout. Age and illness will do it to you every time.

                                  Try your local nursing home or other institution which feeds people in quantity. Many of their supplies come in buckets - ask them for empties!

                                    This is amusing - especially the people who do not find it amusing. As usual a source of COTH wisdom as well.
                                    I sent my husband to pick up yogurt while he was on errands - of course he got it exactly wrong as there are so many different types. The dog gets one little pack for breakfast these days.

                                      My Apple-a-Day electrolytes come in a 30 pound bucket with a stick-on label that looks as if it would be easy to remove. Personally, I don't care about labels/advertising on the buckets. But if you do care, that is an option to consider.

                                          Found five gallon white buckets , with the child warning on the side. White high gloss spray paint covered it up. And you can buy lids separately if you want. Of course, someone I know and love, is already eyeing them to reorganize his things in the basement❤️ But a successful day all around.
