Saturday, after getting the car towed, we borrowed a trailer, loaded up on fence building supplies, as well a ton of gravel and started our weekend project. First we built a cattle panel fence around the horse corral since Socks doesn't seem to care about the electric, and since my electric never seems to be working properly anyway. We also added a real gate, since as I said, the electric wasn't cutting it. Unfortunately at the end of the day we forgot to check the latch on the old gate, which we had been bringing supplies through and so this morning we had to retrieve the horses out of the neighbors yard. Socks and Squirt were good like usual and came right up to me to be led home. I had to take a second trip back for Moses and chase him home, but this time he went right away instead of running the neighborhood like last time.
Here you can seen them in the new fence. They are either tired from their adventure, or pouting about being punished.
Then we had to drill holes in the bottom of the big flower pots I bought last year because apparently there were none which meant they didn't drain leading to a mess of rotting plants and stagnant water.
After that was cleaning up of the garage, and cleaning out a closet. It's amazing the kind of stuff you hang on to, that then gets buried and lost long past the time it would have ever been useful. But we now have a lot of space in the closet, and a lot of trash.
We completed our holiday with a trip to Lowe's for new plants and then to Wal-mart for some groceries.
