Prepping for Fence Work

7 Jul

I already mentioned that my fence between the Back Forty and the corn field had to be replaced this year.  Well, I started prepping for that this past weekend.  I started by making a shade in the Love Shack because I figured it would work to hold my weaned girls while the whole herd (including their moms) were on the front pasture.

On Friday night, I shut the opening to the lane with a panel.  All the goats and llamas were shut off the Back Forty.

In the morning, I had to go and take some of the pieces of cattle panel that I’ve been using the last year or so to secure the fence so that I could reinforce the fence between the barnyard and the lane.

I also secured my panel a bit better.  We’re going to be working by that corner of the barn.  When we’re done, the goats and llamas will be able to get behind the barn.  We’re going to take down the big trees that have grown up, and then the goats will keep it cleared.

After getting everything secured, I opened the gate to the front pasture.

Some kids didn’t even notice it.

The llamas wanted to go out to pasture to eat, but they don’t usually go over by that gate, so I opened the other gate to the front pasture also.

It wasn’t long before Aurora headed out.


The llamas explored and might have startled the kids who were still being lazy.

Then Maybeline and Odie went out into the really tall grass.

Tomorrow, I’ll show you how it went with the goats.

    That’s really an involved procedure! It’s too bad some of your readers can’t help out!
    I have a hard time keeping your farm straight in my mind. Have you ever printed a map of your place as part of your blog?

      I actually just did a map a couple of weeks ago. The Back Forty

    Sounds like a lot of hard work. Love the goats and llama images. Thanks for sharing the map. Have a great day!
