Maybe it isn’t that, but it’s the gate to our livestock pens! This is so exciting to me!
The chickens weren’t the only new additions to the property. There are also lots more holes and poles than yesterday.
It’s so much fun to watch the progress. This area will be so darned sturdy when it’s done!
I lucked out and finished work in time to watch some of the process of erecting that second giant gate support. It is a delicate process using huge machines.
Unfortunately, I realized I was supposed to be feeding horses instead of being mesmerized by tractor ballet.
While I was gone, the giant H got in the holes, and the front-end loader was holding it up, ready for concrete. Lee arrived and helped out with the other tractor, and soon it was in!
We now have two big H braces. They would make great supports for an adult-size swing set. So, that won’t happen, because it would need mosquito netting. Holy cow, the recent rains have created swarms. Trying to find a sneaky calf this evening ended up being a buzzing, stinging nightmare.
We’ve been having fun working and enjoying the animals. Carlton is out with us often. He’s gotten so well behaved that he’s a great outdoor companion.
Who cares if work’s hard? After work is great on these long days!
