Checkin' Fences on a hot afternoon
Bunny was in the 'wrong' pasture the other evening, so I decided I'd better get back to walking the fences every other day and making sure all is right.
I found a place where the deer must have gone through and knocked off insulators and twisted the hot wire over the top of some posts.
I'd never seen anything quite like that before. But I went to work. I'd already taken the Weed Chomper to the other section of fence line and this line was nice and clean.
The Dexters do a great job of keeping the fence line spic and span.
I really do enjoy going out and wandering around looking at the fences, it is a great excuse to get outside and take a few farm shots.
Yesterday however, I only had my new Smartie-Phone to use.
It surprised me!
You can see the Dexter pasture, a round bale, and in the distance two red molly mules in the Merry Meadow.
The sky was incredible. I just loved the greens, blues, and the sky of course!
Thor agreed with me and had something to say when I walked past him back towards the house.
I swear he was saying, "Hot enuff for yah?"
And yes, it was HOT and sticky and very humid.
But the fences are cleared, and all are nice and 'hot' again. I think I'll make sure I go more often.
Remodeling has sidetracked us to some extent and ... well, who can resist going to check a fence when the view is like this?
