Q: I am about to remodel our bathroom and am thinking about installing a horse trough instead of a claw foot tub. Clearly the price is right when a horse trough costs $79.99 at Farm and Fleet when compared to the claw foot tub that runs $1,200 or more. Has anyone tried installing a horse trough and if so what are the pros and the cons? Right now I can only see the pros.

Editor: Please weigh in – do you think a horse trough could work as a standard bathtub replacement?
