Some new fencing

Pin It


Started work on some of the fencing around the barn area. 

Currently all of the fencing is painted this deep dark brown color, kind of depressing.  Much of it is already in not great shape as well, I've already had to replace a few weak boards. 

We liked the way we had our fencing in Gilroy, just a top and bottom rail with mesh in between. It kept the animals from chewing on the fence and opens things up a bit so you can see the donkeys better.  Because the donkeys have started chewing on some of the fencing, we started on that section first.  Here's a few cell phone pictures, you can click on them for a larger view.

All of the posts were in pretty good shape, so we kept them.  Here you can see some paint in place on the posts and you can see the old fence boards and their brown color.
Another angle, you can see another area of fence in the background that we'll get later.
We pre-painted the boards (and some spares) to get a good coat of paint on them.
All the new boards screwed into place and the mesh in place.  Back in business.
Some upset donkeys, no more wood for snacks!
Even the telephone pole got a little paint on it to blend in!
