Stock Tanks drying up...

It is really sad to see these stock tanks drying up. Most of the bass have already been done in by lack of oxygen and large herons, storks, and spoonbills.
If you look closely at the edges of this pond you can still make out the cedar posts that are remnants of the fence we put up around this tank during the drought in the 1950s. We did that to prevent cattle from venturing out into the mud and bogging up to their bellies. They were too weak to then make their way back to dry land.
