    That's an awsome idea [​IMG] They'll know it's their water, and should have no problem with drinking it. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Haha! I always use plastic jugs. So much less of a pain, cause they don't freeze as fast [​IMG] this morning alll of the metal waterers had ice, but the plastic ones didn't have hardly any! [​IMG]
