Actually loving the sound of hawks

Hello everyone!
I don't know if I ever told you about it, but these past few months my family (mainly Spencer) has been taking down a large barn for some people and in trade we get to keep the wood and metal. There will be enough metal to replace the old shingles on the animals barn (where the girl goats and sheep and the chickens are kept) and "Spencer's" barn-where he's hoping to put and apartment on top. It's almost completely done, just a few more roof panels then time to knock the barn down.

Yesterday, I went and fixed part of the horse fencing. Their fencing is made up of pvc pipes and electric wire. It's really cheap and doesn't look good but it works; we dream of one day have four rail wood fencing....For almost a month the eletric wasn't working for the fence and D'Artagnon broke through into a feild, so I had to go out and fix the wire. I also added another wire "gate" to prevent the horeses from going down the path way to the 'third' field.

Samantha and I decided to sell off 5 of our chicken hens. We're having a hard time buying chicken food (it's gone up A LOT since we started raising chickens!) And since we can't free range them, it's hard to keep them happy and full...

Because our chicken are in a fenced run and we don't have to worry about them, it's really cool, across from our house there's a grain silo and trees (neighbors property-it's not really close to us) and two hawks have made that their home! It's really cool hearing them calling to each other and flying and sitting together!!  

Find time to enjoy the little things!
