    Former Russian strongman Alexander Zass developed tremendous strength that allowed him to carry a horse on his shoulders, as shown in this vintage photo. A new workout routine at the farm?

    I stop at ~700 pounds. Seriously. Dumping a full 100 gallon trough is about my limit.

    That horse doesn't look much like he is enjoying the show.

    Good Grief! I have to bail out at least half of the water first. My 100 gallon troughs are flat bottomed.

    So are mine... I gave up using the bale spike on the tractor after punching a hole in one, and got tired of making no progress with a bucket. If its not on flat ground, I can lift it up in front to dump it. If it is on fully flat ground or a wider one, my back is to it and I use my legs. Even my chiropractor is surprised he hasn't seen me lately lol.
