With nothing growing, the animals are stressed. The grass is dead. The trees are stressed, losing leaves and aborting acorns. Ponds are going dry as the grasshoppers flourish. It's heart wrenching to see something you love suffer so badly.
Ken is parked in our dried creek bed. We are waiting for the backhoe to come and dig it out in search of water.
His tires were completely off the ground at times. He was digging dirt out so fast Ken got our tractor to help push the dirt out of the way. Ken got a good knee workout that day. We were able to dig down about ten feet at one end of the pool and the water has come up 5-6 feet.. So Happy!!
After finishing this pool, we moved down to what we call "dog bath pool" which had some water in it. When we got there, the bulls were standing in the water cooling off.Now it's much deeper and wider with the water on the rise...
I'm so happy this worked out. Now if we can just get rain so the trees and wildlife won't be so stressed.
