|Three different concepts of a "scoop." Which is correct?|
These are standard two-quart scoopers. Which one contains a true scoop? The one filled over the top? The one filled level with the lip of the handle? Or the one filled to the 2-quart line?
The reason this issue recently came to light was that one owner politely left a note for us to make sure her horse was getting a half scoop of feed.....and then we discovered a scoop filled about halfway to the lip of the handle in her grain bin as a guide (FYI that is almost 2 quarts). The people I just started horse-sitting for are of the same mindset; when instructing me on how to feed each of their guys "one scoop" they demonstrated by filling a scooper until it was overflowing.
