Water War Update

I purposely only put Connor in his paddock after I had filled his new 40 gallon stock tank.  I didn't want him to ever succeed in flipping it over, and I knew he would try.  Sure enough, well under five minutes after I turned him out, I heard "KA-THUNK splash KA-THUNK splash KA-THUNK splash."

I snuck around the corner just in time to see him with both feet in the tank, having splashed about half of the 40 gallon tank's worth of water out into his paddock.  Cobs!  The good news is, he never succeeded in knocking it over, therefore, it became boring to him, and he left it alone except to drink out of it the rest of the day.

Success in the water war?  Verdict: maybe!
