Turtles Leave for the Winter

With a lot of help from a little dog, Richard and I pumped down the pond over the weekend and pulled 13 turtles out. They will live indoors until spring. Our pond isn’t deep enough and lacks sufficient material in the bottom for them to burrow into for the winter.

The fish stay. They stop eating as the water get colder and go dormant. They do fine as long as the bubbler stays on to oxygenate the water and keep a hole in the ice.
