Good Fences #55 or

Three Water Gaps and Dry Land...
 Since the grass is staring to green up and part of the cows are done calving,  it's time to move some of them across the creek.  That always means we have to go check the water gaps.  The only trouble J had at the first one was getting his shirt caught on the barb wire.
 The second one was up and no problem.
 The third and deepest one was of course broken but J fixed it in no time.  I love the knots of tree roots on the bank.
Then it was off to dry land.  These fences are definitely easier to check.

Great photos.

We know where there are fences there is always work.

At first glance I thought 'trout fishing'. Thank you for a glimpse at what it takes to keep things maintained. I've been educated and that's a good thing.

Of course the broken fence would be in the deepest spot, Murphy's Law. Good to have such a handy man.

glad he doesn't get stuck in the muck! the bottom of our pond, here, is super thick mud. water gaps - that's a new term for me. :)

So I'm a bit confused as to what the purpose of the watergap fence is, can you fill me in.
So glad he didn't get cut when his shirt got caught on the barbed wire. This was interesting as it's so different from the lifestyle I live.

I dread the day when we need to fix any part of our fence that spans a chunk of bog. The fence was there long before gov't fools decided to divert water, which eventually caused a strip of bog to dissect our land. I Thank God for my husband who takes those kind of tasks on himself; it's one quandry on which I don't mind being out of the loop.
