I am not around much anymore, due to working on the new place. Thought I would send you guys a couple of photos so you can see the progress. The ponds are up and running, the 200 yard range is finished, the barn is full of tractor and tractor stuff.

The first photo is of the new pond on top of the hill, with the aireator/spray head in operation, overflow pipe in place and flowing a half full 4 inch pipe to the old pond. It took 10.5 days at 24 hours per, pumping 43 gal per minute, to fill the .75 acre pond. The 4 inch deep well with 2hp submersable never faltered.

This is the old pond cleaned up as planned; it took three photos stitched to make the one picture. The old pond sat for 30 years several hurricanes and a tornado without any maintenance, it is now cleared of logs, downed trees, stumps, etc and will be filled to within a foot or so of the top of the dam.
