A new pipe fence was installed across the front of the pasture with double gates to get equipment through. The barb-wire fence at the back of the property is new and the side fences have been re-worked to keep the animals in.  A new yard fence will keep your pets safe and a doggie door allows them inside out of the weather into the mud room.

The lean-to part of the old barn has been reconditioned for the animals to have a place to get out of the wind and weather and out of the pasture during watering.
