Mending Fences

We're replacing the wire fence that surrounds the winter loafing yard with split cedar. The horses crumple and crush the wire while they're rubbing and scratching, so hopefully the wooden rails will hold up a little better.  Here's Terry pulling one of the seemingly endless of fencing staples that held the old wire to the posts.

Cattle Call

Blossom is getting ready to calve soon, so we moved everyone down to the barn this morning which makes it easier to separate her from Big John and the rest of the girls. This was our first major move without the late, great Princess leading the herd, but we didn't encounter any problems going up and down the hill...except fort poor old Annie (the black Lab in the photo) who could hardly move after her day's work.
