    Unfortunate for both the pond AND the cow! Just a wandering cow @MitchM ?

    A few of my air lines have broken because of the cold and I even broke one by moving it .I guess that is why the cat broke my pond heater cord .It just cracked in half when I chased the cat off the frozen pond and he hit it getting off the ice .

    The cow's fine.
    That big steer with the horns pushed a few of the ladies aside so he could get a drink and one fell in.
    :rolleyes:

    The pond was around 8k gallons, they filled it in since then and moved. They had a ap100 air pump running almost wide open, just a bit of the air not going into the pond. One of our cold winters, around 1/4 of the pond was open to the air. My pond was frozen hard, I had a small pump going.
    Not over stocked, healthy looking fish. Not sure if they all died at once or over a month or so. When the ice melted they were floating, in the deep end. They did have two fish survive, if I remember what they told me later, correctly.
    First indication was he saw a few floating in the open water. Didn't see anymore floaters, the rest of the pond had a thick layer of ice on it. They showed as it melted.
