Athena poops in her water bucket and/or grain bucket if I don't clean her stall everyday.
I figured it out once when we had to wait about a week for our shavings shipment to come in, and so I couldn't completely gut her stall. She would get mad, and would poop in her water AND food bucket every day. And the food bucket is bolted to her stall wall, so that was a joy to clean. :roll: At first, I couldn't figure it out, but as soon as we got new shavings and I completely cleaned her stall she stopped.
I can't complain, at least she's figured out a way to tell me what she wants, and it keeps me from putting her stall off. Lol
