Fencing without swords

It’s not nearly as much fun as the other kind. Probably more useful though. 

So, I’ve done quick and dirty fences for the birds but it’s time to do a real farm fence. We’ve plotted out a 1/4 acre plot for the first pasture paddock. Btw, any other city folk planning on making pastures, an acre is bigger than you think. Trust me. 

So we’ve got the corners marked and a line strung to begin clearing the edge. My work schedule isn’t really cooperating so it’s slow going. Fortunately, I do have until about march or April to be finished because that’s when I’m getting goats. We may bring a few trees down in the process of putting the fences up, but mostly we will let the goats clear away the land. 

They’ve got their work cut out for them! 

Some of this area is already partly cleared from the last owner, so there’s that!

Getting through this area will be a bit of a challenge. 

Anyway, I’ve got 4-5 months to get this done. The only part that sucks is that they’re the rainiest months! But I should be getting a truck soon and that’ll help with a lot. Not the least of which will be transporting materials!
