Today’s job

Here’s what I got done today.

Before

After

Also got a corner replaced that was getting pretty bad.

Still need to cut some of the ends off and also I dug some more holes on the longer stretches and have to set a few more posts so as to strengthen it, but that won’t take to long. Also I need to add more, stronger wire at each pole and post so they never get knocked down.

I still have enough poles left to make another smaller corral out behind my small red horse barn that I can use to go in and out with a harnessed team and also we can use it at sorting and preg time, for another place to put a sort of cattle.

I will have to build or buy some gates, but as usual, I always have a few corral panels around to fill in the holes until I can get gates hung! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, and here is the new tent, set up on the north side of the house.

I didn’t have enough poles to set it up properly at first so used more ropes than was needed after I added the poles. Looks like we didn’t get the ridge pole set to level! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh well, it keeps the rain and snow out and it has a wood burner stove in it, but the chimney is not up in this photo. When my Danish friends were here last Sunday evening, the 3 men stayed in the tent. Got pretty cool, but they said the stove warmed the tent up fast.

For some reason I am tired tonight and my wire twisting arm is sore. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sure was a beautiful fall day. Not too warm and not too hot. Just a little wind.

  1. That tent is an absolute classic. Puts a man in mind of elk hunting in the Rockies a long time ago — packing it all into a high valley on a string of good ol’ mountain horses. Canvas, dutch ovens, Winchester 70s in blue steel and walnut, real wool shirts. I am jealous.
