Spring Development Update

Weeks ago I took some pictures of the final results of the August and September spring development project.
The second faucet was a little slower in "springing" forth, but within a few days, the pipe filled up and the water ran. You must remember that we hadn't had rain, so we were waiting for the spring to do all the work.
Then we hooked up that line to the barn. Although not as crystal clear as the alley spring, the animals have shown no ill affects. Fifteen goats, ten chickens, and one horse get all their water there. The cats and dogs seem to like it too, so we will call this job a success after a month of use. The real test will be how the frost free faucets work in the freezing weather this winter.
