Fence - 2/3 done!

We now have only to hook up our 50 mile fence electric charger to have the total top

1/2 of the property fenced and ready to be in use!

Oh, when the burden of hay taxes one's spirits as low as they have mine at present, this is a joyous occasion, to be sure! One can never waste grass, such a precious commodity here on our farm is it.

Keep us in mind if you spot "cheap" dry kept hay or know anyone cutting hay are
a super reasonable rate!

We now only have to fence the sides to connect the front half and the hill with the yard area to be finished with all fence. Sure, doing this will put us with a yard cow, but there is grass to be eaten all over the yard, and by George, Stella is going to get it! You just can't go a-buyin' hay when you have perfectly fine grass on your land. No, sir!



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
