muscle fatigue

the parade of chickens.

we fenced for two days. my hands are sore the most. my whole body is sore but i can barely type. we are two thirds the way done fencing in the paddock to the ravine.

this is what we started on the first day.

this is the second leg of the first day--yesterday.

here is one of the corner posts next to the rocky crossing.

here is the view from below up the second leg. it curves around the ravine a bit.

this is a view from above. it looks a little messy cause i had to cut that huge looming tree and it took out several other trees when it fell. so i have a bit of a mess to clean up yet.

here tabitha is digging the holes for the third leg. can you see the kids playing in the woods in the background?

here is kassi climbing a tree. in this photo she is about 6 feet off the ground.

tristan is playing on some vines near the creek.

here they both are. i love seeing my kids playing in the woods.

this is what we have to to the second day.

this is what we did the second day. the second post is the one tabitha was digging in the earlier photo.

we only had to put in two post on the right side. the approach to the rocky crossing is a bit tricky.

this it the furthest corner on our second leg--only one more leg to go.

here is the view toward the rocky crossing. that is a cattle panel acting as a gate at the end of this run.

this is my two wheeled dolly. this is indispensable in the ozarks. i don't have a tractor so when i do stuff it is all by hand. this tool carries rocks that i can't lift and fence posts that are too heavy to shoulder.

just a nice photo of the girls. they were following me around thinking i should feed them--i did. they are like pets with benefits. they are pleasant to be around and feed us at the same time.
