We have been trying to clear out an area in the woods for the new Ram Barn. The builder could arrive this week so we moved this wood via the wheelbarrow over the past few days, I am now ready.
Of course there is still a lot of chainsaw work left to do!
The Commander broke his chipper last Fall so once it is repaired he has a lot of work piled up and waiting for him.
The Commander went out today and cut brush and trees for almost three hours. His plan is to let in as much sunlight as possible to get some undergrowth growing that the sheep can eat in a few weeks. Of course we can't let the sheep out in this area until the fences are put up.
Fences can't be built until the trees are cut up and out of the way, there is more work to do than there is time to do it. Making pastures out of forest land with only a chainsaw and a wood chipper is hard, I wish we had a Bobcat or bulldozer!
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
