Same here, there is only one outside spigot on my entire property, midway between the garage and barn, and it's froze up this winter, and my brilliant fiance broke the handle off figuring that one out So now hauling buckets out of the shower every night to the barn is my most hated chore, along with hooking the hose to the hot water outlet for the washer in the laundry room to fill the big tank every other day. Bleh. This spring, getting a water line run into my barn no matter what!

Ditto with the water.
I hate draggin the hose out to fill the troughs, and then having to drain the water out of the hose after wards.

Filling up water buckets is the worst!
1st they are frozen over so I have to crack it and get it all out.
2nd the outdoor water tap is also frozen so I have to go into the house and get the buckets into the sink... lol what a scene! bring on spring!

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.
