Water Tank Woes

Last night, I got home an hour earlier because I just went right from the night school class to the water tank. It was empty, but only a few feet from the fence, and still upright. I didn't holler for them at all -- just pushed it over against the post and turned on the water. They came on the fly.

I bought that tiny tank so I'd have one somewhere that I could move by myself in case I needed to be able to water someone in an unusual place... But now I am thinking that if that tiny tank is to be their main water source, I need to replace it with one I CAN'T MOVE alone... (but they probably could...) that will hold at least one day's water supply at a time. Most of my tanks are so big they take 5-8 hours to fill gravity flow from the pond... (They don't move those around).

But, Crem climbs into the one they have access to in the summer. She walks her front end into the tank, then paws like crazy, showering herself and everyone nearby. She's a character. Her full sister, Mocha, was drinking out of the outlet pipe before the water hit the tank last night. Guess she likes hers fresh. The temps we've been having, I doubt she was doing it to get cooler water. Pride took the loose end of my jacket through the fence while I was petting and playing with the noses through the fence. I didn't realize it until they'd all wandered away and the tank was full when I turned to leave. My string to draw the jacket tight around the bottom hooked me tight to the fence. I knew immediately which imp had caught me!

The stars were gorgeous.
