Interesting Horse Watering Product

I found this website today for the H2orse Animal Watering System.

My first thought when seeing this waterer is that it may be the perfect solution to both hauling water from home, and watering back at the trailer when finished riding for when we haul out for training rides at various parks.

I'm picturing mounting the waterer directly to the side of the trailer where I tie the horse.

I emailed the inventor with these questions: Would the plugs hold up at highway speeds to keep the water in the tank and out of the drinking bowl? What are the dimensions of this product? What does it cost?
I'll update this post when I get a response.

Very cool. Please keep us posted! I would be interested as well.

Got a response, they don't think it will work for the trailer, saying it would be too heavy to tie up. But since I was thinking of actually bolting the thing to the trailer, it might still work.

The dimensions are 18 X 23 X 26H and it is 28 pounds.

The cost seems prohibitive to me, while a clever product, the price tag is over $100, plus tax and shipping. For that, I can suffer hauling buckets at a day ride!
