I imagine I have more pictures than anybody cares to see, but I thinned them out as best I could. At least I spared you the dozen or more shots of Sadie. She had a delightful morning running free.
Cliff's friend Tommy recently bought some cattle; he has plenty of land, but none of it is fenced. He's been looking for some hedge posts to buy for quite awhile, but balked at paying $30 apiece for them.
Hedge (Osage Orange) posts are heavy, strong, and tougher than iron. They'll outlast any wire you attach to them.
Tommy was after corner posts, which are the strongest point in any fence. They serve as an anchor for your whole fenceline.
Cliff's brother, Phil, has Osage Orange trees scattered over his eighty acres; so Cliff and Tommy spent the morning cutting posts.
I passed time taking pictures and enjoying my dog. And removing ticks from myself.
