And after twenty or thirty minutes*, his legs get so tired that he has to lay down while continuing to refuel.
In fact, he continues drinking even while he's in the process of lying down.
He's not very neat about drinking either. He sticks his entire nose in the bowl and tends to drip water all over the place. I tried to point out the mess he was making...
But he tried to claim that the bowl had a hole in it. And when I tried to tell him that he was drinking up all the water in the well, he just laughed at me. Like he knew more than me about how wells work. So that did it - I sent him back to his foster mom.
*Twenty or thirty minutes might be a slight exaggeration.
