    of the ground being stomped down and compressed so hard (say by cattle) to the point that groundwater from below/rain from above collects in it making a mudhole.  This is used as an expression of how badly you will "stomp" a persons ass (meaning beat the hell out of them).  It's rather brutal imagery conveying a sense of near-murder (though generally meant with some hyperbole depending on who's speaking).  I assumed it was widespread in the South, but it may be limited to more rural farming areas and the hills even there.
