השוקת היא מתקן להשקיית בעלי חיים במשק הבית ובמרעה. על פי רוב היא סמוכה לבורות או נמצאת בחצרות הבתים, ומולאה במים בידי אדם. הביטוי "עמד בפני שוקת שבורה" מכוון למשבר קשה, שכן אי אפשר למלא שוקת שבורה במים.

אגני אבן היו כלי קיבול לנוזלים או למזון. לעתים הם שימשו להשקיית בעלי חיים ולהאבסתם.

The trough is a facility for watering animals in the household and grazing. It is usually near cisterns or in the courtyards of houses, and filled with water by man. The phrase "faced a broken trough" (Hebrew) refers to a severe crisis, as it is impossible to fill a broken trough with water.

Stone basins were containers for liquids or food. They were sometimes used to irrigate and feed animals.
