The Fence Is Done!

Yay! We have a fence! This morning, the fence crew finished up their work. Frederick Fence Company did a fantastic job! This is the side opposite the privacy fence:

The idea was to have this side match the style of the exising fence in the rear of the property. Now the pets have room to run free (note Max's fluffy tail in this pic):

We still have to put in the wire mesh for the back fence, and Max apparently is smarter than he looks.....his first test this afternoon was to see if he would go under the back fence. He did. Right over to the farmer's yard and to the alpaca & chicken pen. Good thing those things are fenced in.

So Joe met the neighbor farmer lady when he had to go get Max....and learned an interesting fact! She said that alpacas kill foxes, and often mistake small dogs for foxes! They almost lost their dog a few weeks ago when they put it in the alpaca pen, not knowing this. The alpacas tried to stomp it to death! So it's a good thing Max didn't find his way in there.

That would be horrible if it happened, so it's best to know ahead of time to try to prevent it. It's just that the dogs don't always cooperate.

Are you looking for a new hobby?

Nice to see that your home improvement projects have gone well, mine haven't. They've just generated at least 2 more projects, not what I needed these days.

I've seen them chasing the chickens, but had no idea they were killers!

Hahah - I hope mebeth stops by and checks out that link - I'd love to see her make one of these!!!!

THe kitchen is the last big project we have planned, so keep your fingers crossed. Let's hope all goes as planned with this one.....
