The back of the property

This last weekend Tom used an excavator and dug a pond in the back of our property.  It rapidly filled with water.  The soil there is mostly clay so hopefully it will retain the water well through the dryer months.  He built steps on one side in case it doesn’t.  I am hoping to build a fence around it- either woven wire or electric netting- and put the ducks and/or geese back there.  They would really like a bigger pond, I think.We also have the majority of the sheep, a few goats and a llama grazing the woods out back.  They really enjoy browsing a variety of plants, and all are looking very well fed.  It is nice that they keep the brush down and clear the trails for us too.
