We just received the latest quote for fencing and fence-replacement from our local guy. We like it. We approve it (with one minor change). We shall have it, my Precious!
Coming soon to a pasture near you me: real board fencing and gates to replace the metal cattle fencing-plus-clips in both the front and back pastures, including a gated catch-pen around the front barn for trapping goats. The old dog yard is being re-absorbed into the backyard right pasture, the raised bed that was hiding in the dog yard is being abandoned, and the metal dividing fence is being replaced with board fencing, complete with a little fence-box around the two apricot trees. We are also starting the slow process of fencing in the new property for llama pasture with a chunk that parallels the entire back pasture and butts out about 40 or 50 yards into the new property. The dog house is going to lose the heater, and then be moved into the hay barn pasture so that there will be individual shelter for that square, too. This migration of the dog house will maintain the six sheltered divisions that we've had for the past two years, while allowing us to ditch the chain-link gate between the dog yard and the back-right pasture. The bonus is that it will all look so much nicer than the beat-up cattle fencing.
The only downside is that there are more fences that I'll have to stop Q_Goat from vaulting. He's giving the goats and llamas bad ideas.
