i was assuming these were feeder lines from turbines to a substation.  i've never worked on a project where they've buried high voltage lines.

You have to translate this link, but it's a PDF on 161KV cable sold by this company.

So my dad bought the 6-9 mini ponies my uncle had been keeping on the cat ranch for like $200 in order to keep down weeds in all the random pens.

Apparently one of them was preggers and we now have a new baby mini pony named Jack/Jackie (not sure on sex yet).

Now that the yotes got all the cats the "Cat Ranch" name may be changed to "Mini Pony Ranch"

Flash flood warning out in NWKS so I asked my dad if they got any rain.

Still trying to figure out if the new mini pony is a jack or jackie.

That is the mother or is it an adopted mother? I remember we put the hide of a calf that died on a newborn and the mother wouldn't take it.

Regular mother, my dad is bottle feeding it just so he has something to do.

LOL I mean I don't think Jackie was quite cut out for this world unless benji's dad screwed something up by feeding it raw eggs from a bottle for God only knows what reason

it kinda makes sense to me that miniature horses wouldn't be super healthy animals, as foals or ever.

He bought some powdered milk from Orschlins and mixed it with some whole milk but jackie didnt like it. The mom was still alive and nursing it so I have no idea why my dad thought he had to supplement with more non horse milk  :dunno:

@sys my dad texted me for help identifying the snake on the bottom right of the picture. (Was taken in the pit where the lawn sprinkler on/off valve is if that helps).

I told him non venomous and to let it live, hope you will concur.
