So once the drama of actually setting posts is over, where does a would-be fence builder go next?
Wire. (This is exciting stuff, people.)
Rolls and rolls of wire. After fencing fields 1, 2, and 3, we made the switch from woven wire to high-tensile. Actually, Mr. Fix-It made a unilateral decision that he was never touching a roll of woven wire fencing again. Since my stake in this issue amounts to making lunch for everyone and hammering staples into posts or making lunch for everyone and hammering staples into posts, his decision stands.
We’ve now officially run more than 3 miles of high-tensile fencing for fields 4 & 5. That sounds like a whole lot to me, but we can say it as 16,800+ linear feet if that sounds bigger to you. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a lot. Period.
Here’s our weekend in pictures…
And many, many thanks to all our helpers.
We’ve never built a fence alone.
