    Yep, I also agree.

    I know I'm late on this thread but I would just keep taking him to the tank that's going to have the water heater in. He'll get used to the calves.

    Be patient and keep an eye on him (You're doing a great job of caring for him).

    Yep, that's what happens to mine when they lay down. Especially if they lay in hay. As for the water, everyone else has given great advice so I don't really have anything to add (I'm late to come to this as well) but it reminds me of a little story lol.
    A few years ago we got my pet steer a new water tub. One of those huge black plastic ones that are supposed to be nearly indestructible...Well, we put it in in the middle of winter when it was in the -'s (F) and he was alone at the time so when it was that cold we'd shut the door. Well, he kept breaking out and after 2 or 3 days we realized he was so afraid of the water tub he was breaking out to eat snow! Poor guy. We quickly switched back to the little tote things we usually use for him and gave that one to the horses. How silly is he..!

    He's doing loads better, I feel. He's actually in with two full size cows now (scary!) and is adjusting well, and yesterday he let me lead him right up to the tank by the calves and he took a big old drink. I'm sure he's drinking somehow-he looks good, despite getting filthy from the rain and mud
