More "Don't Fence Me In"


Trees had to be cleared before we put up the South fence. 
Brian cut down several trees that were leaning over where the
new fence would go.









However, there was a slight accident with the chainsaw
that sent Brian to emergency for nine stitches.  It was just a  
surface wound, nothing broken or punctured.

Don't fence me in!

Well, we had to put up a better fence.  This photo was taken when we moved in on August 25, 2009:











However, horses getting loose, neighbor's dogs walking up to our paddocks and scaring the horses,
a better look to the property, and
just plain old peace of mind made us go ahead with a new fence.
