    Thanks. I'm going to look into that.

    Greetings from (soon to be) Azle, TX.

    I was thinking along the lines of using plywood to enclose the bottom 3 feet or so, and then using cattle panel or some such the rest of the way to the roof. That would take care of the predator issue at night...which is when I would expect that sort of thing to be most likely...while still...

    Greetings from (soon to be) Azle, TX.

    I'm pretty committed at this point. Or maybe I just should be committed. Yeah, fortunately the section I want to plow up is separated from the pasture by a fence and gate...and a hot wire, at least partially. Though I'm not sure what good that's supposed to do without also extending across...

    Thanks. Here's a better aerial view from the front. The property line extends a little way into the trees in the back, and there's a small creek that cuts across it through those trees.

    Oops...I neglected to answer this one. The pasture is just a fenced section of the property that consists of ordinary grass (I don't know what kind yet, but I suspect Bermuda) and nothing else. And even that looks like the sellers have been keeping it mowed. The place is actually subdivided...

    Greetings from (soon to be) Azle, TX.

    That's exactly out situation. Yeah, nature is cruel in setting things up so that you have most of your disposable income when you're too damned old to really enjoy it. So I'm given to understand. The first thing I'm going to do after we get moved in is walk the fence line and go over it with...

    Ah, OK...I get it. You might not say that if you saw the size of the cashier's check I left with the title company at our closing this morning. ;) But seriously, your setup actually sounds pretty nice, even though you had to put in a lot of work at first. Our timing couldn't have been worse...

    Greetings from (soon to be) Azle, TX.

    Thanks. We're currently in the 'burbs just east of Garland where we built our house on just under 1/4 acre 27 years ago, so this will represent multiple changes for us...fairly late in life (we both just recently turned 60, and my wife will be retiring next month.) Interesting. Now, when you...

    Greetings from (soon to be) Azle, TX.

    My wife and I are closing tomorrow on a 2.5 acre property WNW of Ft. Worth, just outside of the city of Azle. It is narrow (about 100' wide) but very long, and is already subdivided into 3 well-fenced sections (including a functional electric wire running along the top of the entire perimeter...
