A warm spring that feeds a small pond built by homesteaders many years ago. The warm spring lies within a ranch owned and operated by The Nature Conservancy. The warm springs found here were diverted by homesteaders many years ago in an attempt to use the water. Little remains from these early settlers, except for the small pond they constructed. The warm spring offers no bathing opportunities but is an interesting feature of the landscape at the Muleshoe Ranch Preserve. There is a plethora of evidence of early settlers in this area. The settlers attempted to take advantage of what little water is offered in this dry landscape. Obviously few of these settlers were successful, and today all that is left are faint reminders. The warm spring was diverted into a small pond many years ago, but has since been generally left alone.
