Cool Water Tank

Post by Caustic Burno » Fri Aug 31, 2018 6:26 pm

Old windmill feed water tank from back in the early 1900’s. The tank then feeds several water troughs on my friends ranch. All the water troughs are in the forty acre catch pen or the corrals.

Looking out of the corral into catch pen. Very friendly environment.

You are definitely not in the Big Thicket anymore are you?

Thanks for posting.

Careful CB. You don't want to be spending too much time out in that country. It's addictive and gets in your blood and sticks with you too. My days in E Texas and these be nice pine trees are numbered.


There are lots of those old tanks still out there. There's a couple on my cousin's place near San Angelo.

Here's a picture of one wife and I found roaming the back trails. It was almost dark when I took the picture and you can hardly see the tank's curved rock wall on the very lower left of the shot.

That is crazy looking country!

Those "tanks" would be called ponds up here.
Get over it! It could have been alot worse.

Probably some of that old land that won't grow anything but brush and oil wells. :lol2:

It’s an above ground rock and mortar tank.
