Spring melting 

It won't be long and we will be starting to get ready for the spring melt. The single best thing we have ever done in the pens is to dig trenches (about a foot deep and 8 - 10 inches wide) in the ground before it freezes and then as the snow gets movable we dig out the trenches. That gives all the snow a place to go when it is melting. Making for less standing water in the pens. And, over the years we have also raised the level of the pens higher than the other ground with gravel to allow for better drainage.
