|Ditch crossing before tightening fence and installing cable over the water.|
Well I gave it a go today. I was hoping to finish the orchard fence today and just could not get it done. I got all the crossings buttressed and stabilized. I strung up the woven wire fencing and put on the first row of smooth wire. I had to cut the panels in half as I do not currently have enough available to make the entire crossing.
We turned the sheep loose in the orchard tonight. When I came back from my parents one sheep was already outside the fence. I am thinking she crawled under the gate and didn’t jump over the low fence…
I will keep thinking that all weekend long.
|I had to run wire in X shape between both posts to stiffen fence end.
I bought 60 feet of cable for the two crossings and ended up
with an extra four feet. Good thing I didn’t buy 50 feet
like I was initially planning.
