There was a pause at lunch time to go get the bull again. He is still finding ways to get outside the fence. He lifted the panel down near the schoolhouse. Gannon and I had pounded some metal posts into the side of the creek to keep him from pushing the fence out easily. I cannot put them in the creek bottom as this is a spring runoff creek. It is dry now but it won't be that way in the spring. I wired the panels to the fence posts so he cannot just lift the panels with his horns. We will see how long it takes him to get out now.
I had needed to fix the barn door entryway where we enter the sheep side, as this is where the newborn sheep have been falling out of the barn last winter. Gannon has been digging out the old milk cow area (we had sheep there year before last). Which means I needed to install some steps to get up into the barn. We used the old pallets I had laying around and made a set of stairs to get into the barn. I also screwed in a board so the newborn sheep cannot fall out of the barn.
Gannon still needs to finish digging out the old milk cow area but the steps look great and work awesome. We will start putting old metal roofing on the barn next week. This side can be done relatively safely.
