Thank you...the pond should be the best it has been in my lifetime. When my folks purchased the land in 1970 that pond was down in the woods behind the house and my brother and I when we got old enough to drive cut all the woods down with Poulan chainsaws and sold the red oak wood so dad could have more pasture. I caught my first trap line animal right behind that dam and now that land is mine so I am really wanting it to turn out nice. Already feeding hay and liquid feed...That's some good pond work Okie! Sorry your pasture is burned up. Time to start feeding. I know many who have been hauling water for quite some time now.
