The reason why I'm asking is cause I don't think mine live on water at all! I bought them last April and I have yet to see them drink any water. All tho we have had a shower just about everyday for the last two months all I have done is empty old water and put in new water. In fact about two weeks ago I emptied there water trough and never did fill it back up. I left it turned over to keep the rain water and mosquitoes out. Finally for the last 4 or 5 days we have had hot sun shine. This everning I reliazed that I haven't filled there water trough lately and they are probably dieing of thirst. So I filled a 5 gallon bucket full of water and took it to the goat pen. The goats surrounded me and watched me pour the water in the trough and then I stood back expecting to see them drink it dry. They each walked over to it, took a sniff of the water, and then walked off. I thought to myself I do not think that I have yet seen them drink any water at all since I've owned them.
