[RC] feeding in troughs - Lynn White

With the discussion about feeding in old water thoughs it bought to mind what 
happened to my neighbor.  He fed his horses in an old water trough.  One of his 
horses managed to get both his legs in the trough, slipped and asphyxiated 
himself.  It was terrible, but the horse actually died pretty quick.  I'd never 
put feed in anything a horse could get himself into. You just never know what 
can happen, and horses seem to find ways to hurt themselves. The horse that 
died was a very nice level-headed rocky mountain horse in his prime and was 
part of a wagon team.  So sad, and so preventable.
