fencing staples for the all weather pens and a couple of horse pics
The usual view, but the temps are hot.
The horses are dealing very well with it.
We have trees and cool shade.
I am coping, hydrating, and changing clothes a lot.
That's alright with me, these are good problems.
The "pens" still look like this.
It's been hot, and we can finish the fencing and gates this weekend.
So, there has not been a need to potentially drain Mr. Java's Mom's enthusiasm for farm improvements and put him to farm-work here after he gets home from job-work.
We have only gotten to the staples phase of fencing in the pens.
We pound the staples in a little, and then run the fence through.
It is not a great idea to pound staples first for large areas, but for this small area, it makes sense (efficiency sense) since the fencing doesn't need to be pulled too far.
The staples are little "U"s.
Then we string the fence through, and pound the staples in more.
As we proceed with the project, I'll explain more with pics.
