We usually go up the hill, but today we diverted and went behind the barn, to the hidden pond tucked under the ridge. This pond was built by the previous, short-interim owner, who, I think, was looking for a place to do some "private swimming." Whoever dug this pond did not get the drainage right, for it won't hold more than a foot of water. I would like to get it re-dug someday, as the spot is just perfect, next to the apple orchard and well behind the barn. I'm very lucky to have water sources all over this little farm. There is always a place for the sheep and goats to get a drink, and doggies to play.
