I was called to search around the horse stables for a lost ring. Apparently the ring had fallen off the husband while he was feeding the horses. This ring has a habit of falling off, but they were able to find it without help. This time they could not locate it and found me on TheRingFinders website. I was happy to help as I enjoy a good hunt. The initial area was about 15 feet wide and 40 or so feet long, with a low cut grass surface. This was an established ranch here in the lower Yakima Valley, so there were a few iron signals to work around. After grid searching the obvious area and not finding the ring, I expanded the search into where the horses had eaten the hay and after only a couple of swings with the CTX3030 I had a good signal. There under a layer of dirt was the ring. Even though the ground was fairly hard packed dirt where the horses stood to eat, there was just enough dirt to completely cover the ring. It was a great find, and everyone was happy to have the ring back, and a nice looking ring at that. Thanks for the hunt and the nice reward.
