I’ve had a little bit of a break from work, which is good. There are many projects around the acreage that need my attention.

The first one is a little fence mending. Time flies by and it seems like yesterday but it was 6 years ago that I put up the fence on the north side of the property. The landowner that surrounds our acreage grazes cattle. We all know that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Cows know this too, so they stretch the barbed wire while they eat the grass on my side of the fence. It’s a simple matter to un-tie the wire, tighten and re-tie. I just don’t have a wire stretcher
