The first project was to design and build a gate that would provide access to the llamas.
Next he strung the smooth wire on the cedar posts around the orchard and put two galvanized gates in place.
For part of the year, our neighbor keeps her horses in our big pasture. Horses can be pushy creatures. In the past, they've had more than one opportunity to spend a little up-close and personal time with us. A little too up-close for our tastes, thus the need for a fence that is a little more assertive than the electric fence that previously separated (or not) them from us.
Here it is, ready to greet them after the hay has been cut this summer.
And our newest tree ... a honey locust whose blooms will eventually perfume our summer evenings.
