14 September 2007

(Click on picture to enlarge)

I am getting my post in earlier than usual because I have a lot to do to prepare for the show this weekend.

This is the part of my famous fence that I have finished so far. There is another stretch on the other side of the barn which is about twice as long as this :-( but I have a nice system going thanks to Larry's instructions and it is going a lot quicker. I was hoping to get the upright posts set in their holes with concrete today but just ran out of time. I also need to get a 12 foot gate to put into the gap you see. The drive drops away towards the fence which is why the far posts look so close to the ground, they are actually in an area that is lower than the drive. I am relatively happy with the outcome, at least this is visible (I will also run the white electric tape behind the top and bottom cross bars so that they don't reach over and under or chew the wood) and I will feel safer putting the babies and the studs out in rotation without worrying about them running through the wire.

I am off down the road to feed the horses there so I will end off for today. I hope everyone has a great weekend. (((Hugs))))

You are a busy lady. You are like the people were when I was growing up. Everyone worked all day long and went to bed to sleep. You must be dead tired most of the time.

Your fence photo looks nice to me.

The fence is very nice and the hotwire to protect it from chewing is a great idea. Horses can be such beavers! lol
