Wire Fencing is Completed!

We started installing the wire fencing early this morning.  Tomorrow is the day!  Can’t believe Scarlet & Esmeralda will be arriving home to Greytful Acres!

Unrolling the fencing and pounding the staples in the 1st post.

Dave made a homemade fence stretcher and attached it to the tractor to pull it (he just wanted to play on his tractor!) 😉

He used a board as a lever to stretch the wire further and then pounded the staples in the post.

Down the home stretch!

To finish off the wire fencing, Dave “sandwiched” the wire fencing between 2 boards–one screwed on top of the one that he had affixed to the barn.  He used a board as a lever again, and stretched the fencing between the boards to keep the fencing pulled tight.

The fencing in complete and the goats now have a small fenced pasture to graze and play in!
