Personal Waterhole

Who said animals are not smart?   This bull was tired of waiting for me to cut the ice in the reservoir waterhole.   He created his own drinking spot in a large puddle from the thaw.  It is actually thicker than it looks.   I have seen these holes before and knew that cows would stand with their nose on the ice long enough to melt a hole into the water.  Notice there are two others holes to his right from the day before.  Guess melted snow tastes better than the reservoir water!
