Decided the pond just wanted big or deep enough. Didn't have the cash to build it the size I wanted when we first had it done about 6 years ago. Fast forward 6 years. Amazing what you can do with a little Kubota tractor. It is a Kubota with attitude though, it believes it is a bulldozer, haha. About 25 hours on the tractor with box blade and FEL working, amazing the amount of dirt you can move. Only about spilled it into the pond once. Close call made me realize slow and steady wins the race on this stuff. Turned into a much larger project than I initially thought. Just need it to rain now, Indiana has missed most of the recent showers, dry as a bone which actually worked in my favor as the pond was already down 18 inches. Check out the picture show.
