Many years ago, I decided I needed to extend the fence across the barnyard to be able to shut animals off my little front pasture when it was still the only pasture I had. I didn’t have anyone to help me, so I got creative and did it myself. I used my garden claw to help dig the holes for the wooden posts, and I worked like crazy to get the metal posts in the ground. Then I put panels up. There was a metal gate in the middle that I could wire shut or stand open. It wasn’t mounted on the post. I think it did an amazing job for nearly ten years. It was time to change it though. Luckily, this time I had help!
There was one post that gave us a really hard time. We had to go through the remaining roots of a tree that fell several years ago. The post is not quite straight anymore, but it works!
There are several little girls that are just now going out to the big pasture for the first time!
They seem to be really enjoying it, and I’m a lot more comfortable with the little girls not being in the pasture with the bucks.
