Fencing is almost done!

Saturday morning started with some work on the barn and the posts. Local cement supplier, Hard Rock, came early and unloaded into each post hole.

Our friend helping out (best man, actually) insisted that each post hole needed a penny for good luck.

Some more dirt work was finished in the arena (Milo's first home) while I was away the rest of the day at my Bridal Shower.

Today, we rose early and headed to Gig Harbor to visit our favorite farm store, Wilco, where we got our 12" gate and the solar powered electric charger. We got home and headed straight to work, spending the next six hours straight putting the fence posts into place. It was an exacting feat requiring a whole lot more measuring, leveling, and cementing then I thought was necessary before today!

Two hours later and all the electric wire was strung though the fence posts (via crochet hook...haha). We test ran the solar charger, which works, but decided to leave the finishing for another day.

It looks so pretty!!

The last finishing touches will be done evenings after work this week, so the new plan is Milo's debut home on Saturday!

Everything is coming along so nicely! I can't imagine how excited you must be to get Milo home, and to have such a nice place to keep him. :)
