Gettin' there ...

Well, the front pasture now has fence all the way around it.  None of the fence has been stretched or secured to the t-posts yet, but for now, it's at least making the sheep think they can't get out.  I have about 5 more T-posts to do, then I can stretch the whole thing and secure it all.  The hard part is done.  Finally.

Took a weed down to the neighbor for him to identify it for me.  Turns out it's milkweed.  Anyway, got into a pretty chatty conversation and am learning about the different characters that live in this area.

The clickercrackheads are everywhere.  Watch out for them.  They're coming soon to a theater near you ... and they will tell you how to train your dogs.

Oh, speaking of training dogs, Echo has been quite out of control lately.  I'm having a hell of a time handling her.  I hear that homeopathic remedies work great, so I have decided to clickertrain her in the fine art of smoking pot.



With the Western Idaho Fair trial coming up, I am so glad I found something that will calm her down just a bit so that she doesn't end up eating any more of Don's sheep this year.  We might be able to get around the course.

One can hope.

  1. Mellow there, Echo?

    I am impressed that you think of the stretching as easy. Argh! I hate fencing no matter what part of the job you are talking about. I am totally impressed with the 1000 acre ranch beside me and all of their fencing - even if it is hired hands doing all the work.
