Fall brings all kinds of interesting chores to be done ~~Fencing is one of the many things that we have to do around this ranch. Our fencing is snake fencing which is done with logs. It is all done by hand sometimes a pickup is used to pull the logs to the fence. When the right size log is found it is put in place after first notching at just the right angle the log then lifted into place. It is very nice to have two strong good looking men to do this. I have lifted logs too but oh my gosh I do not have the strength of a man that is for sure!! There is a lot of fencing here. When you are working on it it really seems like it will never end. I suppose that is a form of job security. LOL

Much of the outer fence now is getting quite old
so next year will have to be replace. It was going to be this year's project for sure but we were flooded out most of the season. the year before was a huge forest fire. I think the only thing left to hit us now is an ice age!!

There are some remnants of old moose fencing here and there still around the ranch ~~I love this old fencing and hope to one day put some around my garden.Try jumping that !!It is a fence with the poles sticking up at angles to keep moose out. Cows and deer don't like it either and will not jump it. If they did the outcome would be critter on a stick! This kind of fencing is a little more work intensive but the good part is it takes poles instead of logs.

One mustn't forget the corrals and the shutes are all needing fixing too and the stackyard ~~So nope no time for boredom in the fall and seeing as we really won't be fencing this fall we will move onto the next part of fall work~~FIREWOOD~~but that will have to be another posting LOL

Let each of us please his neighbour for his good, leading to edification. Romans 15:2

Mya God's Word be your fence love Roxanne

Wow, that fence looks labor intensive. I won't complain about ours anymore. Well...maybe I will, but I shouldn't. Your fence looks so nice. It's attractive and functional. We're done fencing for this year, but my honey has plans for more fences next year.
Good news about the cattle. Must give you peace of mind knowing they're home now.
Have a blessed evening dear friend.

Hi ~ You left a comment on my blog "As Simply As We Can" for Bev. But I'm not Bev. I did know her from HSB as well though and have also lost contact with her. I know of a few other's who have as well. I don't know what happened, I just know that her health was not the best. She and I kept in touch online and we talked on the phone from time to time but the last few times I tried to call her, I never got an answer. :( So I'm sorry that I'm not who you thought I was, but we're both in the same boat because I don't know what became of Bev either. Sorry.
