It’s officially getting pretty hot and dry around here.
The pond is a bit leaky, so without any new rainfall, it just went ahead and dried up.
Unfortunately, the bull, cows and young calves are all back grazing the pasture around the pond. They’ve suddenly run out of water to drink.
Some quick fencing was in order.
A small alley was fenced off with polywire to let the cows come up to the pasture behind the barn.
We’ve got a 6′ stock tank in that pasture, fed by about 300′ of above-ground hose that’s coming from the one outdoor hydrant on the entire farm, right next to the well house.
The hose and tank aren’t exactly a permanent solution, but they’ll get us by until we can put in something a little better.
The bull certainly wasn’t complaining, just as long as he had some water for he and his ladies to drink.
Oh well, it could always be worse.
