Digging Out Step-1

On Thursday amid the sustained good weather under this umbrella of a high-pressure zone, with bright skies and temps in the low 709’s, I went and fetched the shovel to do a little more digging. From one angle looking towards the fence, and then across the ditch to the other side towards the fence, with lens and Photoshop distortion. It was a good two-hour workout, and still more to do.


From one view you can see what might become an island, as the water percolating down out of the field runs around it. Instead of a really large “pond” area (dry in the summer, of course), that might be where I place the center of the bridge span, so the mower can get across.
Afterwards my Wranglers and t-shirt needed a little washing-up.

Also I discovered a black pipe running along the direction of the fence-line, about where the water drains into my neighbor’s cow-watering hole. I have no idea what-for, but it’s soft like irrigation drip-line, and that size. At some point it’s coming up and then we’ll find out what it is, and whether it might be/contain wiring for an electric fence? There’s nothing out there to water anyhow.

  1. Low voltage wiring (I’m assuming electrified fences are in this category) don’t require conduit of any sort for below ground installation. Not that someone couldn’t go above code, of course. You might be able to check it with a meter designed to sense live conductor fields. One of those Stud Finders with live wire sensing might work.
