    Golden - that had to be the funniest thing I've read all day.

    But you could just get a dog like I had. We had groundhogs everywhere. So she went on a misson and tore up every...single.. trench they made. We had 3 acres. It looked like a war zone. But then one day she got carried away when she found home base and dug a hole large enough for the lawn mower to fall into, one more reason to watch where you mow. She was banned from digging after that.

    But we won, for that summer.

    ROFL, Poppy we had a Doberman who dug holes, but he never caught any, just made bear size traps for the unwary everywhere

    Haha yes, for the largest sized bear. My dad wasn't paying attention and drove right into it. Swallowed the lawn mower whole. It was beyond hilarious. She caught a few but the rest moved away due to their homes being completely destroyed.

    We have the same problem as you....but we have gophers.
    We tried poison shooting em drowning them but nothing really works.
    We stopped with the poison because theyre in our hay field and we don't want that crap in our hay. They do move when we move water and abandon those holes but they don't leave leave.

    Mostly we just turn our coydog loose in the field every night with outr bloodhound while we move water and let em eat whatever they catch.

    Our horses don't seem to have trouble with the holes. We turn them out there every winter and theres gopher holes in their small paddock and I've never seen any of them trip I one when their goofing around.

    If you don't have hay growing there or if you can move your horses for awhile I would go with poison. That was the most effective for us.

    ^^ our neighbors tried tore their ground up baaaaad. They ended up with more damage to their field from that than from the gophers themselves. That's why we went with the poison.
