Spring is when we do preventative medication for different intestinal parasites. One preventative method consists of mixing a medication into a very large tub of water and restricting access to the Ritchie, which is continuously fed from our well. This forces them to drink the medicated water. We tied concrete blocks together over the Ritchie access points to force everyone to drink from the tub. They ended up draining it in a day so they figured it out!
