New Old Fence
We’re on a pretty tight budget at the moment, but we wanted to install a section of fence at the new farm to keep the horses out of a potentially dangerous small area next to a metal shed (I had visions of a horse getting cornered and kicking through the metal siding and degloving a leg… yeah, after the year of vet bills and heartbreak that we have had I’m constantly seeing potential disasters everywhere!), so we got creative.
We took down an old round pen and some fencing that we didn’t want, and then sorted through it and reused the pieces that were still in good shape to build a new fence. It still needs a coat of paint, and we haven’t installed the gate yet since the post isn’t set yet in the hole full of loose dirt; we just attached a round pen panel for now. I’m pretty happy with the result. Zero dollars and a weekend of labor. Not bad.
