"Water-Front" Property

Our homestead was labelled a "water-front" property in real estate listing. And it's true on some days:

The "wet-weather creek" that cuts our property in half, full because of last night's rain.
When it's full and flowing, it's great - a peaceful, babbling brook in a scenic glen of wood.

Trouble is, most of the time it's dry and empty. I would LOVE to rely on this stream for livestock watering, centering pastures around it for free, unlimited, low-maintenance watering. But alas, I cannot. All it really does is provide a scenic (and peaceful-sounding) backdrop to the homestead after a good rain.
