Thanks George.
Those lily pads look challenging for sure. And the grass too. Is it also a stick pond? We have lily pads on some of our ponds. They are very hard for the dogs to find birds in. We train with black bumpers in that water.
The fields are interesting with the occasional trees. Do they mow in the summer?

The lily pads can be a challenge and in that particular pond (Sandspit I believe) they can cover the whole pond. The field gets an occasional mowing, clearing of brush, and may get a controlled burn from time to time. The lily pads can be especially tough for young dogs, they surround their feet and scare them.

Is the lily pad pond wading or swimming water?

here’s our lily pad pond. Look similar to yours. Ours is a mucky bog though. The dogs usually come out black.

P.S. the photo in my signature is the field attached to this pond. Taken a couple months apart.

Condition of that pond---it depends. It could be swimming water if there has been a lot of rain. However it can turn into mud or even sun baked mud for a good portion. We have some ponds go completely dry. Why? My guess is that water usage gets bigger than recharge. Golf courses and increased housing use groundwater.
