Fences and Neighbors

This past weekend John and two of our neighbors, worked on the fencing project. They got almost all the fenceposts up, and with only another 15 minutes of daylight, they might have finished that part of the project. Now the only thing left if to finish the fenceposts, string the barbed wire, install the fences, and bring the cows over to our property. I think John is pretty well on target when he says he will have those cows on our property by Thanksgiving weekend. And then he needs to clean out the birthing part of the barn so Miss Ruby can get used to being in there and when the time comes next month, she can have her calf in the barn where it's not quite so cold.
This section of fencing is only about 1/2 of the entire fence project. But with this part done, John can get the cows over on our property and then work on the rest of the fencing during the winter months. What an enormous project he has taken on - and what an enormous effort they have put in to make it happen. Good going, guys!

Putting up a fance is a big job. Good thing your hubby has a nice neighboor to help.
You are so lucky to have cows. I have always wanted one since my days on our dairy farm when I was little.
