Windmill Spring




With little creeks running either side of the dirt track to the Windmill Spring, we were surprised to see so much water flowing from the spring box to the trough, a full 3/4″ pipe full (click to enlarge). Quite a change from the weekly maintenance and a quarter-pipe full or less for the last four years. We’ll see how long it lasts.

    Good morning;
    According to my Google 10 day weather report we are in for 10 more days of rain. Doesn’t look to be as heavy as the last one but steady. My prediction is that your Windmill Spring will be running full tilt for awhile.
    I have a spring too but all it does is make my horse’s pasture muddy. I can see some French Drains in the future.

    • You’re scheduled for more rain than we are, but enough to limit our access to cattle for the next week. You can with some perforated PVC collect your muddy spring for a water trough, if needed.


  2. Quick, put a Pelton wheel on it

    What is a Pelton wheel and how do you use one?

    A striking photographic contrast between the kelly green grasses and the gray scrub oaks. I love the picture and pray the spring flow like this well into the summer . . .
