Outdoor plumbing?

Repurposed as a water trough for the horses??? Seen at "Faraway Ranch" which is now part of Chiricahua National Monument, Arizona.
I really couldn't figure out what category to put this one in. ???

    Here are also everywhere in the fields old bathtubs as cattle drinking troughs :) Nice find.

      Thanks Michael. I was totally guessing and half joking but from what you said, maybe that was its purpose, I mean repurpose. :-)

    Looks inviting. Suggested category: Science. Surely there is a science project or two at the bottom of the tub...

      I tried to get my friend to take off his shirt and get in there and he said rather sternly, "You get in there!" I said no. No doubt you are right about some science in the bottom. Thanks Irene. I appreciate the comments.

        I, too, was once told, in Arizona, to take my shirt off ... a few hours after visiting the fabulous Sonora Desert Museum where we learnt the difference between a coral snake and a similar-looking one (milk? scarlet king?) a fellow traveller and I noticed one of the friendlier snakes between two rocks next to us. He wanted to use my shirt to smother the snake so we could pick it up and take it back to camp to see who really paid attention at the museum. Since he did not want to take his shirt off, either, the snake was left undisturbed. A little cutie.

          LOL! You are a treat Irene. It's also funny because when I was at the Sonora Desert Museum in April, we saw several employees standing around some bushes looking intently at the ground under the bushes. We asked about it and they said there was a rattlesnake they were trying to catch. They asked if we'd like to help but we declined and walked away with our shirts on. :-) The snake that looks like a coral snake is a king snake. Same colors in a different sequence. "Red touch black, safe for Jack. Red touches yellow, kills a fellow."

            See where a photo about an out-of-place bathtub can lead... Best to leave rattlesnake-catching to the experts, I always suspect that the reptiles use their rattle selectively, i.e. they will not always let you know that they are there. I shall remember the red-black-yellow when I next wander around the local deserts over there. When we moved to the bush here my sister-in-law also gave me relevant advice: "If it is green, it is harmless." This applied to "tree snakes" only, and I saw the first one after about 11 years of living there, it was playing in a delicate shrub I grew in a pot next to the front door.

    There used to be someone in my neighborhood who had one in his yard. He filled it with dirt and grew flowers in it.

      That's a good idea for repurposing a tub..., I think. ;-)
