 manger
      n : a container (usually in a barn or stable) from which cattle
          or horses feed [syn: trough]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Manger
    (Luke 2:7, 12, 16), the name (Gr. phatne, rendered "stall" in
    Luke 13:15) given to the place where the infant Redeemer was
    laid. It seems to have been a stall or crib for feeding cattle.
    Stables and mangers in our modern sense were in ancient times
    unknown in the East. The word here properly denotes "the ledge
    or projection in the end of the room used as a stall on which
    the hay or other food of the animals of travellers was placed."
    (See INN.)
