While there is much to be said for knowing an individual horse's water consumption, when one is watering a large group of horses in cold weather it is far easier to maintain a supply of reasonably warmish water with one large communal water tank (heated and/or automatic) or with heated waterers.  Trying to deal with small tanks or buckets in sub-zero weather is enough to wear one to a frazzle, and when dealing with large groups of horses in a communal setting in ANY weather, it simply isn't practical.
