We've spent a day and a half building fence this weekend. We need to wean some calves so we had to make a calf-proof pen. Lucky for us, the husband built fence for over 10 years so figuring out how to do it was nothing. Just doin' it was the issue. This was the first free time we've had to do it so everything is crammed into a couple of long days.
The first thing we had to do was use the tractor to get the wire out of the grass. Ya think it's been awhile since we did some fence building!
Here's our wire chia pet!
The crowd grew as we laid everything out.
Here I am working. I do my best work on the ground, less likely to hurt myself there.
The husband tying the ends off. Very tedious work, not for me.
We've almost finished. Have to clip the last remaining 100 feet or so in the morning. Then it's time to work the cattle. Here's hoping that runs smoothly.
