    Tues was out at farm putting up more of the sucker rod fence. 40 mph winds with gusts to 65 mph. Got sand blasted when we moved to the road . Temp was mid 60,s. Tree's down all over the farm. Nephew is out there today cleaning up. We finished the sucker rod part of the fence yesterday. Now for a bout 1/4 mile of barb wire 4 or 5 strand and new posts to put up. Also hauled 1/2 ton of layer feed out and put in old chest type freezer. cheap mouse-proof grain bin. built a stand for the extra sucker rod and got all the un-needed(extra) put on the rack, up and out of way of mowers and equipment. My neighbor helped himself to about 16 ft by 300 foot of my hay this year. Same @ss I had problems with last year. But gonna put in metal t-posts before next year on property line so he wont get it again. If I totally put up a fence there he will just let his finish falling down and viola larger pasture for him at no cost. AINT HAPPENING. Vast majority of his fences are more patch then wire. Electrican finally done at farm have power in the duce coupe now to figure out some sort of shade providing contraption for the girls before moving some down there.

    sucker rod -- the straight answer (omg could have fun with that one as one of the guys on the farm is names Rod) Solid steel pole about 25 feet long in various dimensions (thicknesses) that has threads molded on each end they screw into each other used in the oil field for drilling. When they get to worn for that people buy them to sell to others for various projects. Biggest thing out here is fencing. My fence is 4 strands of rod 1 foot up from each other attached to railroad ties every 10 foot. I used 5/8 and 3/4 inch thick. You can not attach one thickness to another the connectors are not interchangeable. is 25 foot rod with 1 connector goes for between $16.00 and up per stick.

    No wonder I keep falling into old fence post holes with my little feet?? And to make it worse I am about 6 ft tall.

    But then you know what they say about a man with big feet??
