the fence, the fence, the fence....


We have successfully set all the corner posts for nimue's fence. there were five corner posts (of this type) necessary. the three other corner posts are rock rings, as seen below. the pasture is about an acre square with a 40' by 70' rectangle subtracted for our garden from the side closest to the house. the milking shed will be close to the road and have an integrated gate to access front of the pasture. there will also be a gate near the back of the pasture. for vehicle traffic. I can see that a drawing is necessary. I’ll post one later today after consulting the map-master and spending a few minutes with illustrator(tm).

I’m going to take today off. I’m not really feeling well and I hate to work at less than full physical capacity.

how do you attach the fence to the rock posts? you guys are going to town on your fence!!

We have those rock ring fence posts all over the place in our part of Missouri too. I think the ground is too rocky to easily sink a conventional post, and with rocks so handy to fill the ring, it's a perfect solution. Still, I wish I had half your energy and drive.

tired and sleepy last night.

stella, you just wire it to the woven fence that is encasing the rocks.

pablo, i couldn't do it without tabitha. she helps so much. mike, tabitha's father, says if you CAN dig a hole for the three fence posts you'll have enough rock for a rock ring--so you're better off just collecting the rocks laying around and make the ring in the first place.
