Workshops with Bill Zeedyk

The problem contains the solution:
an old fence line
combined with cattle walking it
started erosion: headcuts usually go in 2's or 3's with soil horizons
you can see the O, A, and B horizons
the old fenceposts make an excellent sponge/step down
allow the water to trickle down
Starve the headcut with a "worm ditch"
set at 1/2 the slope of the hill
with a rope twice as long

Comanche Creek, Zapata Ranch, and San Luis Lakes
