Default Tell Me Why?

Why I got this chain link fencing from a GS brother last winter and didn't start installing it until 95-degree weather? Regardless of my dumbness, this will keep the piglets inside the trap---no more squeezing out once the gate falls. Burying it about 6" below the bottom of the panels, fastening to the panels with hog rings, and leaving the top 18" loose in case they try to climb out, it will sag back into the trap with their weight.







I will head back out Monday in the morning for another bit of digging. Hardest part was removing the old wire I used inside previously---the kind with the black plastic used on construction sites---no-go, not strong enough. The rest of the wire is in good shape so all I will need to do is trench, and then attach the chain link to the panels over the existing wire---multiple blocking. I don't think the shoats will be escaping now--

Reminds me of a t-shirt I once saw. It said: “When a MAN says he’s gonna do something, he’s gonna do it. You don’t need to nag him every 6 months!”

Big Lake, TX. I love that town....It was around 93 or so that I had to call 911 because we had to many crawfish leftover and needed help eating them. They came to the rescue!
