Another year, another pasture

Fenceposts in wagon

We dismantled our final tree alley this week in preparation for building our fourth goat pasture. Although the idea was good, it matched up better with the animals I was used to pasturing when I conceived it --- chickens. Goats require so much more grazing area that it seems preferable to use our limited fencing supplies to enclose the largest possible square footage rather than separating out zones to protect woody perennials.

One more day of fence-post pulling and I should be ready for the fun part --- putting those cattle panels back up in a new arrangement!
