Our first well has a good supply of water, and our pump is functioning well, but the tank is old, and it’s much too small for the amount of water we need per day. We also regularly have to climb up the metal construction on the right of the tower – to clean out the sediment from the well water, that collects in the bottom of the tank.
Our second well, located a few meters from the third house, is shallow. We can only draw water from it for a short time. It’s not enough to fill the small water trough on the tower nearby. We need to either increase the size of the current well, or drill a new and deeper one. It will then be able to supply water for the third house, the horses, and the grass around the stables. We also need water closer to the stables, to wash the horses. At the moment, we have to take the horses up to the main house, and wash them there.
We would love to have a water tower that can hold enough water for everyone on Wild Horse Farm – the people, horses, and other animals – for 3 days, in case of a power cut.
Here you can see images from the water tower near the third house, as well as the pump house nearby.
Here you can see the kind of tower we would like to build by our main houses, as well as near the third house and the stables.
