Every Third Day
Remember what I said about every third day being able to actually make some progress around here this time of year? Well I finished up the weekly mowing cycle again today and actually got started on the fence project once again.
Sunday, Monday and most of Tuesdays seems to be dedicated to mowing. I finished up my dad's lawn this morning after work and got the last few strips done at the Small-Hold after that. I looked at my watch and was amazed I actually had a few hours to spend working on the fence.
After shuffling the always in the way horse trailer around and the manure spreader I had to put the blade on the 8N and go to work on a couple of old posts that needed pulling if I am going to get the configuration I want between the barn and out building.
Finally got the posts pulled and I now need to go buy a couple more gates. Since I decided to re-think this little area I pretty much added about $400.00 to the overall fencing project costs but I think it will be worth it.
Oh and why I was out with the camera I snapped a picture of the new rooster. Boy he has it rough right now. These hens have got him cowed let me tell you. I had to lead him out away from the hens and feed him some cracked corn all for himself because the hens were chasing him away from the feed I put out for all of them. However tonight I noticed he was checking to be sure every hen was in the coop as the sun was going down. Not that he could make them go in but he was sure going around making sure he knew where they were.
After the mistreatment these hens had under Rocky this new guy has a tough row to hoe let me tell you.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
