At the mercy of the weather

Greetings!  It is about 2 degrees outside today.  Horses are happily eating hay and walking around.  I am so impressed with their ability to adjust to changes in the environment.  While we are still working to change the drainage pattern in the pasture, efforts are stalled for the winter.  I think this will be a continual battle as we live on a farm with a high water table and water source that collects rain water and snow melt-off in the spring.

I want to thank you all for your donations in the past and hope that the new year finds you happy and healthy and blessed.  In the new year, look for us to post a new project geared at the helping some of the special needs animals in our care.  Until then, take care.

Drain Tile didn't work!

Flooded Pasture Again!
Flooded Pasture Again!

Well, as you can see, the drain tile isn't sufficient to siphon away enough water with the heavy amounts that we have been getting.  Turns out that they are more designed to provide continuous irrigation than massive water movement!

Now we are back to the drawing board!  We need to finish paying for the equipment purchase so funds are still needed.  We also have to make a new plan.  I am open to suggestions.  Anybody?  Currently, we are contemplating creating rolling hills in the main pasture so that vast amounts of water do not sit stagnant to breed insects and disease.

Please respond with any suggestions that you have.  I am listening!

Thank you so much.

We have grass!

We have grass!  (Some)
We have grass! (Some)

Thanks to all of you out there who have helped us along the way, we FINALLY have grass growing in our pastures! It has been a long haul and I can see light at the end of the tunnel for this project. Once they are well established, we will turn our attention to repairing the fencing and restructuring the layout. We will also be adding shelter in each individual pasture and paddock. Once again, a shout out to a worthy not for profit out there. Check out DART disaster Animal Response Team. It's like the Red Cross for animals. Check them out! Again, thanks so much for your continued support!
