There goes Margali with her ziplock bag, following sheep around waiting for pee.

The things we do for our sheep…….

Congratulations on the upcoming lambing. Little lambs are so cute. I never get tired of them.

Now I need to order those!! :celebrate

Group I just bought had a young buck with them. That's fine, decent animal but I wanna know!

Couple will go to my other bucks if open. Of course my bucks would tell me in good time if I put them close but, don't want to annoy them with a constant nose up their butt right now. :lol: and don't need the fence issues this week either. :old. Gotta love 'em!

Phase 2 of Ranch Build has started. We are in the narrow window of not too hot, ground not frozen, and plenty of days off. Plan
- water and electric to the barn.
- electric to gate which is on path to shed
- outlet and box at power panel so I can mount electric fencer there.
- Double hot wire installed separating the ranch from home acre.
- Going to use the trenching to install electric to make drainage ditch along drive.
- We may get some gravel on the driveway too.

I also have the 2x4 no climb to put up. Issue with that is I have no wood or metal H corner posts where fence turns.

You need the H braces. No braces, no fence. That non climb wire is hard to stretch, do you have a stretcher bar? If you don’t, you can make one with two 2x4’s. Drill holes, bolts with washers and nuts and you have a wire stretcher.

You also need to set the braces and give them time to set up before you stretch wire to them.

You have a lot going on there. Fencing takes so much time!! Looks simple when done. Like a day in the park!! We know better. :old trench and wire will be easier and faster...unless you have rock. 🤔

The driveway has decided it comes first, thank you very much. First tow of the season out of our own drive with more to come. The moment tires went off gravel he started drifting.

The littles and I are sick and staying home. Husband and eldest went to visit husband's dad and grandma. I am a little manic (or maybe it's the coffee) and worked on fence lines. I think this looks good. We also took a ride around ranch.

Sick and out in the rain????:idunno
That’s what I was thinking!!

The rain was all day yesterday. Today it's just overcast and swampy. It's about 55F out.

Yeah, still chilly and damp-not good for sickies!

Hey is that fish pond your driveway? Silly! Trucks don’t swim!
