exvet, cob proofing things has been a challenge :lol:. Maxwell completely took apart his 40 gallon heated water tub. I tried to take that same tub apart (to clean and check things) last year with no success. How Maxwell did it I will never know. However he did toast the heating element by exposing it to the air :(.
ETA: Max drank twice his usual amount of water to get to the bottom of the tub without spilling it in the barn. That was what I didn't expect.
