    Mrs Robo bought a heated shower for her horse (don't ask me why horses need hot showers :vsad:) and asked me if I could mount it better than a couple of cable ties on the folding trolley it came with.

    I got one of the budget sack trucks from the local DIY shed, then a couple of pieces of flat bar with some holes drilled and tapped, followed by a coat of red paint (don't tell her it's a stationary engine colour :laughing:)

    Looks a lot better, more stable and room for the gas bottle underneath :thumbup:

    They are used as temp hot water supplies on sites, I bet that horse related sticker added a few £££ to the price

    Probably, it never ceases to amaze me, the amount of "ancillary equipment" a horse needs :vsad:

    Thing is, you could probably buy the heaters direct (temp appliance so no proper regs, probably chinese) stick them on a trolley and sell them for even more money, add a 12v pump and battery and you have one that will work from an ibc or water butt

    In fact, I might see what sort of money those heaters sell for.....

    Looks like they start at a couple of hundred for a basic unmounted model on the horsey sites, how much would the site heater cost?

    Looks unstable to me, needs a heavy weight on the 'foot' of the trolley.

    Surely the dials are too small for their hooves to operate?

    We went camping on Norfolk Show Ground and every morning there was a huge queue for the showers so I went off to see if there was another block. I found this block, lovely showers, red hot and plenty of space, absolutely spot on so I used them for the rest of the week. On the last day I was talking to a neighbour and told him about "MY" empty showers and that I was shocked no-one else had cottoned on........."They are for Horses" he told me

    Hang it on a wall by the tap, they are a bit fragile so you need to remember to pull all the hoses off and drain it down if there is going to be a frost.

    About that, I use an old Rinnai one, technically flued and should be fixed but only used when I'm around.

    The "horse" ones are designed to be external mounted in warm countries, air inlet are the grilles on the side and flue is the top
