Corral Report Bryan reported we currently have 5 horses leaving 3 openings. The bottom pasture is closed.  We now have 4 pastures to rotate the horses through.  Bryan will borrow a bush hog to mow different areas. Paul Ellis and the corral members will develop a plan of action for water augmentation.  Tim will investigate cost of having a totalizing flow meter installed as required by the Division of Water Resources.  The board members had an informative meeting with Tim Buckley, Water Commissioner for Districts 9 & 80.  Our well permit is not in compliance for use by the corral. Motion to accept the report was made by Mike and seconded by Karen.  The motion carried.

Pond Report  We also learned from Tim Buckley we must augment the pond water lost to evaporation.  There was much discussion about the creek feeding the pond and where it originates.  Paul has been investigating.  We will try to do a pond survey before it freezes.  Motion to accept the report was made by Walt Wark and seconded by Mike.  The motion carried.

New Business  Nominations were accepted for board members for 2017.  All current board members agreed to be nominated, Al Cook was not present to accept nomination.  Tim also agreed as Felix would rather be an alternate as his wife has a serious medical issue.  Al Cook will be called to see if he will accept nomination and see if anything has been done about the Newsletter post card.  Karen would be willing to email all members from the past three years if a post card is not an option.  She will also post the ballot and annual financial statement on the blog.

Motion to adjourn the meeting at 8:10 p.m. was made by Karen and seconded by Felix. The motion carried.
