So I have this one young buck that keeps tipping over his water bowl. Today it happened at lunch and then after the next meal. And yesterday also.

Its starting to become a regular thing.

I don't understand this...is it supposed to mean something? And what would you do?

Tie it to a post, fence, etc. Or set it inside an old tire if it fits tight.

Means he's a typical bored brat. Does he have a buddy? Toys? Mine are dairy breeds and wouldn't tip water -- they won't walk in water to get to a drink!

If I had a moat, I'd never need a fence.

He has discovered a game.
There's heavy ceramic crocks, water bottles, bowls that attach to the cage. We like the plastic crocks that attach via a nub on the bottom.
