The fall season is doing something funny to my little Oak tree that I insisted be spared from the fence clearing this past year. I guess it's really easy to tell which side the sun sets. In a way - it looks a little lopsided.
But in another way - it brings out its own special character!
Have we been busy around here! Setting in fence posts - wow. Seems neverending. But the new area that will allow access between the barn and the RV pad - from the second paddock - is coming along. All the fence posts and braces are in.
We make a drive to Sweetwater so we can pick up another gate and a feeder bunker this morning. ( They only had 1 in stock at the Co-Op in Loudon. ) The woven field fence will be going up after we return - along with installation of the two 4' pasture gates.
We have only 9 days left before the Moms and Babies arrive!
And something tells me Bruce can hardly wait. I think he's more than ready for somebody to redirect Artist's attention.
They remain ' Best Buds ' - forever! That's obvious whenever I try giving Bruce a chance to take a break with some separation between the two of them. He just looks at me - and turns back to follow his friend!
But there are times when I get these looks from Bruce that seem to say - " Please ? Can I please go over to the other paddock - without him ?? "
I've reached the point where I'll be glad when things calm down - once the Moms and Babies are here and settled in.
I'm ready to focus on a couple other projects going on. One in particular - a Housewarming Party for Jennifer and Josh.
Yep... they bought a house - finally closed the deal - and expect to be moving in by the end of October!
Yeah. Umm... Mailman's gonna need a tall vehicle, too. ( naww... he fixed it. Federal regulations, and all... of course. )
