|Baby chicken time!|
I needed to get out and exercise again today. I like things to get accomplished when I exercise. It is why it is so hard to do at home. My solution to this is the back rock wall. When I need to exercise I use it as a form of therapy and exercise. There is something relaxing about building something simple and massive. I use a shovel and an old heavy duty T post as a pry bar. Some of those boulders were buried pretty far in the ground. I managed to snag five huge boulders out of the ground and get them in place. Soon I will have to fire up the tractor to drag in some dirt behind the rock wall. But for now it is just digging up rocks and building up the wall.

I need some new glasses soon, I can hardly see the rock chucks up on the back hill side with naked eyes. The closing of PGG is still haunting me. I tried to buy used railroad ties for building fencing in Pendleton and D & B does not have any, maybe 3-6 months! That will not help me get the corral installed. They do have a bunch of gates in different sizes and weights. I priced the material from them needed for the new corral pens.
