HANDS ON TIP

NO MORE OVER­FLOWS

EQUUS - - Eq Handson -

My horse trough takes about 15 min­utes to fill with the hose. It is so easy to get dis­tracted do­ing other chores, wait­ing for the tank to fill, that I have of­ten for­got­ten to turn off the wa­ter and flooded the pad­dock. Now I keep a neck­lace of plas­tic beads on my wa­ter faucet. When I turn on the wa­ter, I put the neck­lace on to re­mind me that the trough is filling. When I turn off the wa­ter, it hangs back on the wa­ter spigot. My horses think I dress up in cos­tume jew­elry to feed them, and I no longer for­get to turn off the wa­ter.— Linda Kiesow, Cobleskill, New York
