My first "big animal" purchase

Not the animal itself, mind you, but something for one (or two or...).

It's the February Farm Show Days Sale at Wilco Farm Supply Co-op and I wanted to take advantage of it. We bought a 100 gallon stock tank yesterday afternoon for a really great price. Two months ago, I didn't even know what a stock tank was. Or Wilco, for that matter.

I'm very excited.

Now, if I just had some big animals to drink from it, life would be perfect.


  1. Do the donkeys still want to live in the barn? I'm not encouraging you at all! LOL

  2. Well, if you get a horse, that'll come in handy! Horses(Daisy, anyway) drink A LOT in the summer, when it's hot....uses up shavings fast! :-)
    Once you get animals, you'll love going to the 'farm store'. I do, anyway! :-P

  3. Well if you don't get critters soon, you could always use it as an outside hot tub! hehehe


  4. I can see it now.......a horse for Aidan drinking out of that trough. I vote for a horse for Aidan. Take it from me, if your teenage boy is asking for a get him a horse. It'll keep him busy.

  5. A goat could swim in something that size!

  6. And a very fine stock tank it is. Who (or should it be what) wouldn't enjoy drinking out of that thing.

    I also like the idea of a hot tub for the time being....

  7. How exciting! I can't wait to make my first big animal purchase.

  8. I had posted a comment earlier, but it didn't go through. So I'm still doing something wrong, but I can at least congratulate you on your fine drinking establishment.


I ♥ it when you leave a comment.
