If you can talk MaPat into digging a pond (or getting anybody to do it 
except at the point of a double barreled 12 gauge with both chambers 
loaded) you're a braver man than I am Gunga Din. When you have 1/2 inch of 
top soil on top of solid granite and limestone, the act of digging a 
hole....any kind of a something of a major project.) 

God invented above ground stock ponds for people who live in the Hill 
Country. You just get them hauled onto your place and plunk 'em down on 
top of the ground.
