Lol- think of a jumble up mishmash and you’ll be close. At some point I’ll actually try to get a sketch done. For now let me show you how bad this pen was:

This is the section I finished a couple days ago:

The last pic is actually the opposite fence line. But the side of the first pic is almost finished-we’re hanging the gate now.

Finished.hanging the devil gate from he//...finally. This gate did not cooperate at all- but it is now hanging and by golly it’s even level and swings like a good gate should!
I’m not totally finished with that run but I can knock it out fairly quickly in the morning. Please ignore all the gate building and fence hanging paraphanalia.

Headed out this morning to finish the run of fence that I almost finished yesterday. Then I move to replacing the panels in front of the barn. They're good panels, but they aren't the kind with the smaller holes at the bottom. Little critters go through them and I'm not ok with that anymore. I can use the panels that I take down for hoop houses or garden trellises.

Thanks @tortoise! That’s the plan. Needed another post so I’m sitting in the truck at the local lumber yard while DH is shopping. I love it that he doesn’t mind doing errands.

Got a random text from a number that wasn’t in my contacts earlier. “You have goats for sale.” Hmmmmm... is that a question or a statement? And, if you identify yourself I might be more prone to talk with you about what I have. I replied “I’m sorry, not at this time.” The next text was “hen o rooster.” Nope - I don’t have any of those either, lol. What’s wrong with people???? That’s not how I do business! I guess I expect too much...sheesh.

Oops- almost forgot. I tried to do a sketch of the layout of the place. I never dreamed it would be such a challenge! And, try

ing to get it to scale- forget about it!
But- this is what I came up with. It doesn’t show the pasture behind the sketched area.
