This is the perfect time to get a jump start on spring cleaning. Make sure your buckets are taped so your horse is less likely to rub out his mane or tail.

Close up of a bucket in barn that has electrical tape around the metal hooks.

As you get ready to clean all your buckets, make sure that the tape around the bucket's metal hooks are still protecting your horse from ripping out his mane or tail.

Once you've cleaned out your horse's feed and water buckets, take time to tape up the sides (metal hooks) of your bucket with electrical tape so your horse can't rub out his mane and tail—or even worse scrape up his face. 

If you already tape the sides of your buckets, closely examine each bucket (even the ones sitting in your horse trailer) to make sure they're still doing their job.
