Fence Building Helpers

The bulls have been fightin' across the fence and it was in desperate need of repair.  Got out there on Sunday evening to fix it.

Looked like crap, huh!  Well the husband had lots of helpers.

Diesel was intrigued with the process.  I think he secretly wants to be the husband's dog.

Pepper had to help when the work got closer to the ground.

The husband and his helpers got the fence standing upright.  It was a quick fix job but it will due for now.  We plan on redoing that entire stretch at some point.  But for now, we work with what we have.

I used to have a 1400lb horse that thought he needed to help in every stage of construction.......now it's dogs and goats. Goats are ever so helpful. You've got some lucky farm hands ya know that? ;)

Diesel is HUGE! I mean I knew he was big but the perspective of him standing next to the Husband, whew! ANd he's not even full grown yet. Get that dog a saddle & let Pepper ride:)

Ever tried electric fence? We are using it to keep bulls in; works like a charm.

My girls will help me weed grass out of the garden... they will grab a chunk right out of my hands when I pull it out and just shake the fool out of it. Gets dirt all over both of us but it is so funny it makes weeding easier...
