    It was here when we bought , it is man made , I wish it was spring fed but isn't , no rain no water being added . The horses are my daughters , the mare was losing wieght with the foal on her and needed the grass . I have always had horses ,sold my last one a year ago . Australia is the one country I would like to see ,interesting animals where you are . Gin

    Gin,

    That is a great pond! I love the horses too. The fellow that owns the land behind ours has a bunch of horses. They are so beautiful out there. They give the dogs a hard time, but they are fun to watch.

    Thanks for the sharing your photos!

    Cheers!
