I definitly prefer the fishy pool or best case aquadoula, However my husband likes to be in the tub with me when hes catching so the trough is pretty much out of the question, however I've been to about 3 births that occured in a trough.
The feed store we purchased our tub from offered troughs that were round, octagon shape, oval shape... So if a person preferred a round tub, it's entirely possible to do a horse trough and have it be round.
Why does your husband being in the tub with you rule out the trough?
(And really, I do know that everyone has their personal preferrence. I'm just curious.)
