Holy cow if I had to pay for water I certainly wouldn't have as much as I have planted plus 2 ponds that need toping off from evaporation. I'm hoping we get some rain come spring. Fromt yard is 350 feet wide and all needs water as it has shrubs and flower plants. Of course we always pray for rain for our pasture as its more important the cows have grass to eat. Cow pellets and hay isn't cheap. When grass is thick and green is only time we can stop feeding. We usually only keep about 8 cows at any given time but its still around $4,000. a year to feed them. They do keep our taxes down, feed us and we sell a couple so that $ is saved for hay. They are my husbs. babies and he would never part with them. Plus they keep pasture well mowed. Been here 43 years and couldn't picture this place without them.
