Pig waterer

Anybody easily DIY?

Growing up, we had a huge, heavy, metal waterer that the pigs could not overturn, but that isn't practical for my pig set up. I have the pigs in a homemade pig tractor. I only have two 12-13 week old feeder pigs. Their waterer needs to be something I can easily move by myself.

I'm thinking of attaching a pig nipple to a 5 gallon bucket and hanging it from the tractor fence. If it works, I'd make a second one.

They have a rubber tub I bought to feed horses in and a plastic pool, but they manage to overturn the tub and they like getting in the pool. I will have to look for a tub like that, but we don't have a consignment shop in town.

I did buy a pig nipple and need to drill a hole in a 5 gallon bucket and see if I can make something that way. They couldn't fill that with mud. They would still get their pool, until it gets to freezing here anyway.
