One Foot in Front of the Other

When you have a big dream, it's hard to take little steps. But little steps, lots of them one right after the other, are the only way to get to the goal.

Today, our friends Bennett and Daniel started work on fencing what I've come to call the NorthNorth pasture. This is the lot to the north of our house and current sheep paddock. I've been longing for this fence for a couple of years, and it's finally coming to pass.

Sometimes I let the sheep out up there surrounded by the electric netting to increase their grazing, but that's not a long-term solution. Ideally, we need the whole lot safely fenced for them to graze.

Bennett sets posts in concrete.

We need the higher elevation of that lot to move the sheep to in boggy, rainy weather. We have enough of that to easily justify the work involved. And with three new lambs coming in a few weeks, we'll need all the grazing we can get. This will also allow the north paddock to rest and recover from some seriously hard traffic.

Besides, our fluffy polar bear dog needs a little more room to stretch out and run off some adolescent energy, without terrorizing the sheep.

Soon. I can hardly believe it.
