OK, no photos this post. I had to run home in the middle of the day, and by the time I got back it was already turning dark.
But, the guys did get the area where the back fence for the pigs will go, cleared out and ready for this coming weekend. So we should see huge progress on the fencing by my next post.
In the meantime, we stopped by what is now my favorite store; Tractor Supply and picked up the materials for the electric fencing and feed. We had a 10% off coupon for the store, and that saved us some. The electric fence will be installed along the bottom of the enclosure, to insure they stay in and the coyotes out! Yes, they've been heard in the distance. So far, they've not come too near.
We also have a black bear and her cub in the area, recently seen by our neighbor. Which means there's a papa bear there somewhere! I'll tell you what, I've been a city girl my whole life. I think I'm making great strides to "country up", but the addition of all this wildlife is going a bit fast for my taste. I always keep my eyes on the ground for snakes, especially since Miss Izzy's episode a year ago. Now I have to keep my ears and eyes open for coyotes and bears too!
That's life in the country I guess..
If I don't post again before the Thanksgiving holiday, please have a blessed day. Stay safe and thanks for following along.
