I truly feel blessed to have found this man. We're going to stay in touch and he's invited us up to his farm.....he gave me a big bear hug when he left :)
did you invite him to our Forum?

How great you found this home for them. He sounds like a very responsible owner. And the opportunity to go visit his farm was such a nice offer.

I know, he's all around nice human being :).

After we emptied the pond, I was dismayed to see my lack of attention to it this summer showed. All in all, a good decision all around

I'll upload another video later of one of his big ponds.

Hi Tula. Just catching up on your thread now. I’m sure the process was difficult but it seems like you have carefully thought it through and made some very good decisions. So I have a question … would you consider just having a small number of goldfish that would be easy to care for? I am about the same age as you and have two 2 year old granddaughters and a 4 year old grandson. When they visit us they love helping Papa feed the fish and is something they really look forward to!

Thanks Keith for your kind words.

Awwwww, I bet they love feeding the fish! It's possible we'd consider a few smaller fish, but not this year if we add any it'll be next Spring that way I won't worry about them over the winter.

So far I've been enjoying working on my floating planters and making new spots in the pond for lily pots that raise them closer to the water's surface. Still love listening to the water fall and it seems several frogs have hung around :)
