We are having a new pond dug in one of our pastures. A few years ago Country Guy turned our horses out in this pasture and one of them cut his leg badly. We assumed there was old metal buried in the ravine that runs through the pasture so have been hesitant to use the pasture for fear of it happening again. The best solution seemed to be to have the ravine dug out, dammed up, and turned into a pond.
This is what the process looked like last week as I drove over to take pictures. (I wish I had thought to take pictures before the digging was begun.)
|Yesterday they were putting the finishing touches on the dam.|
|Today we are ready for rain. I wonder how long it will take to fill up?|
