Farm Chores - Mending Fence

Definitely not glamorous, but this is sorta fun. We'll be getting a 2 year old steer soon, and the fence needed a tune-up to get ready. Nothing makes for more interesting afternoons like a new cow out and edgy!

Alot of our fence is still under construction, so we've strung electric fence to keep the animal in. Works great. The kids did a quick weed-eating around the base of the fence, and the littler ones and I patched the fencing. We use the nylon twine with little steel wires, and it is very nice to easily tie new wire on and string it up.

So who's gonna grab the fence to make sure its working???
