Now I Want a Bucket

I went to Murdoch's Home and Ranch Supply yesterday to get some mechanics' hand-cleaner, which means passing the horse department. Stacked alluringly on eye-level shelves is their collection of smooth plastic buckets, in three sizes and a wide variety of colors: navy blue, turquoise, yellow, bright blue, lime green, red, purple, pine green, sky blue, black, maroon, and hot pink. (You can get a feed scoop to match for most colors.) Someone has obviously figured out that practicality isn't the only criteria that horse owners use when buying stable equipment (and, presumably, that many of them are women). Now I am trying to come up with a legitimate use for one of these buckets...
