Fence In Progress

Today was suppose to be a baseball day. However the rain came and the baseball games were cancelled. We took the opportunity to start fencing the upper pasture. It was fenced adequately enough for the cows and horses, but the sheep is another story. We needed to put electric fence up to keep the sheep in and the predators out. Today we got all of the T posts put in the upper pasture. Michael and the boys were able to get the connectors put on most of them.
Here is Michael's new favorite tool. It is a T post puller that removes old T posts from the ground. The posts come up with little effort and they are in good shape to be reused. This tool cost $45 and it was a good addition to our farm.
Here is a picture of the boys just waiting for Michael to give them instructions. One of these boys wasn't exactly happy about working on the fence in the rain.

grace and peace,
