hahaha..my mare would take it out like what is this doing in my water trough. It is bad enough that she takes the hose out if I turn my back when I am filling it. She is very picky about anything being in her water trough. She will snort and stamp her feet if there is a leaf in it and will insist on drinking as far away from the leaf as possible. My geldings don't seem to care. Luckily, I live in Georgia that I rarely have to worry about their water freezing.
