The horses are going to love it as they will not have to get their feet wet to cross the stream any more. I had another chicken die, a teenage buff orpington. I do not know why that breed and why that age group is dying off. It makes no sense.
I called around today looking for used railroad ties to make the new cow corral. There are none to be had in Pendleton. I found some in Hermiston at Payless lumber for $16/each, an entire semi truck load. I am going over on Tuesday to pickup at least 30. I need 30 for the corral and about 15 more for fencing. It is painful but if I don't do it know I might not get another shot at it till the end of summer. I am also looking into renting a backhoe for a day to finish the irrigation pond. I broke the earthen dam and flooded the pit I was working on so there is no other recourse.
