The owner of the property where I keep my horse just bought 70 acres of adjacent land. She is fencing off a part of it for me(very nice of her!). The area she is fencing off is large with good grass growth, even in February. But it has no water line running to it. It does have a stock pond. The water looks fairly clean, not smelly or gross looking. I am not sure if my thoroughbred has ever drank from a pond before or if a pond is an acceptable water source in the first place. I would hate to turn down all that grass though. Will he be fine with just the pond, or will I be carting buckets?
