Mainly keeping water to the livestock, so hauling water and breaking ice a lot of the winter. We have a wood stove, so we stay busy keeping it fed. Because of the way our property sits, the only effective mode of transportation on it is walking or horseback. So I have a pack I wear with all my supplies and tools I need to do stuff, modified for winter of course! Since I have to be out in the weather all the time, one figures out pretty quick what works and what doesn't.

Have you considered hay?

We bury the livestock water buckets in hay about half way up. insulates the bucket, keeps the water ice free except when it gets down into the single digits. Even then, it is usually a thin layer of ice, easily broken up.

with that zero blast of weather everyone was hunting bales of hay - they didn't prep their mobile homes and water well pump set-ups - people that knew better got lacadazile and the newbie to their home situation got a learning lesson ....
