Hubby just completed this years batch of fencing and it looks so good. Our daughter got to help one day while she was off and they make a really good team. She’s almost got to the point that she knows what he needs before he does. This batch started at the south entrance of the bull lot and down to the end of the pond. It also included replacing some more locust post that had probably been in the ground for thirty years because they were rotted off at the top of the ground and top of the post was still in good shape. We’ll use the good part for firewood next winter. Here’s the first section he completed:
New fence at the bull lot
This fencing is in front of the bull lot. You have to have good strong fence when you’re dealing with bulls. When this was completed we had four bulls in the lot. He used four strands of high tinsel wire and the posts are about 10-12 feet apart.
The next section was built about two weeks ago. Hubby tore out all of the fence on the backside of the hay lot and our garden. He did most of it by himself but our daughter was able to help one or two days. It looks really good and it helped getting our wild asparagus cleaned off. Here’s that work as it progressed:
Of course, Gyp goes wherever hubby goes and inspects every hole, every fence and was fascinated with the chainsaw. This will be the last fence we replace or repair this spring as there is so much other stuff to complete before hay season starts. And, this all depends on the weather and hopefully no more duratios like we had last June.
