Fencing…

The kids have been busy bringing pumpkins up to house to do some decorating…

Mark and Sawyer have been busy fencing across the road.  A couple weeks ago they got the west and north sides in tip top shape.  However the east side had considerable more work to do with replacing rotten posts and stinging more high tensile wire.
 
We borrowed this to make the job go a bit faster…

This thing hits the post about 5 times and wha-la…all done.

So on Saturday and Monday evening they were able to get all the posts pounded, braces built,  about half the wire up and power to the fence.  Hopefully they’ll be able to finish up the rest of it this Saturday and get started on the south side.

We still have a barn to clean out and pens to build around barn before we split sheep up into breeding groups this fall.
