Could resist adding one more toad story....
When too many toads sit on the float, the water flow to the tank can't shut off.  That means wasted water -- NOT a good idea in the desert -- and a goopy mess in the cattle pen. 
The solution is simple, if messy:
1.  Remove the lid from the float box. 
2.  Climb in and clean it out. 
3.  Toss frogs in the reservoir and toads onto the grassy bank. 

The brown blotches on top of the float are yet-to-be-rescued toads.  Yes, the photo is probably over 30 years old.  Taken before I learned to keep an eye out for sneaky photographers.
