In the meantime the boys on the other side of the fence were carefully watching and see how it's done. Here are Odin, Tengen, Eeyore, Indy and Hershey taking notes. And Tengen actually did try it by himself.
On the girls side, progress was slow but Franco finally took a sip, and Dolly was a show off by showing them how it's done.
We ended up giving them their "normal" water troughs back for the time being, because they really seem to have a hard time getting over their nervousness and they were all obviously very thirsty, because as fast as we filled their troughs it was just as fast empty again. Having both things going it will give them some time to adjust and get used to the noise of the new water buckets.
After all the chores were done, we hung out in the main herd some more and watched the girls much on their new barley straw. Here are Donkeschoen and Orly digging in.
