Yet Another "fun for the whole family" project.

Or, well, at least fun for Wyatt!
 With the help of the NRCS, Jack, my sweet Dad that helps us with any and every project we jump into,  and George, (the excavator), we are putting in a few automatic waterers for the sheep. 

As you can see, Wyatt can find fun anywhere.   The first time I caught him going down this hill, all I saw was feet straight up in the air and he was headed for the ditch.  He was very sad when the dirt here was pushed back in.  He kept saying "I can't be king of the mountain ANYmore".  We had been planning to make a playground, or playhouse for him, but looks like a mountain of dirt would be a hit.

The sheep came to do their inspection.

The line went down the hill, across the field and up the hill.   About 650 ft from where we started, yet maybe 100 ft from the water line that runs down the road.  (but who needs an extra water bill?)
We still have a lot of work to go, but looking forward to this being finished, so we can get back to hay, the house, and ... whatever comes up this summer!   Maybe some pottery even.   ?
