For years we have been using 5” aluminum mainline to supply our irrigation water. Each year for the last three years we work to place a little more of it underground. This year is no different. Having the line underground not only makes life a little easier, but it also saves water, which matters when you consider how much water it takes to grow pasture and hay. I enjoy this work, but I am really looking forward to tomorrow!
Spring Horse begins at 5:30am. This is our first year to offer the opportunity to experience the wild horses of our landscape. Beginning with sunrise, folks from a two state region will head out in hope of seeing, experiencing, and photographing wild horses who make reservation land their home. A full day of wonderful countryside, horses, and many new folk I have never met. And that is just cool. To hang out, introduce folk to the landscape I love and have the opportunity to hear about their home and their landscape. These conversations always help me attain a little more insight to how others experience creation and how it feeds their spirit; that in turn helps me to become more aware of my landscape, my spirit, and my relationship with Creation—amazing stuff!
Until tomorrow though, a little more digging…
