i still think a rancher was pulling your leg about having to refill the cattle stock ponds. i can't imagine cattle give a crap, given some of the stock tanks i've seen. other, probably better reasons not to swim in the tanks is 1) other people will be using it for drinking water, and 2) it is being disrespectful of the courtesy extended by the ranchers letting us get drinking water from their tanks -- which is probably the main reason the ranchers are pissed. Sort of like swimming uninvited in your backyard pool. -Ron
