About the event
This series is intended to educate and empower all those badass cowgirls out there to some of the essential skills of farm-living. I learned most all of these skills the hard way – by myself and in the middle of an emergency situation. These quick evening tutorials are perfect for those gals who:
- Farm sit for acreage owners
- Want to live on an acreage one day
- Live on an acreage and haven’t had one of these issues plaque you – YET!
Everything is always easier with two people or help, but undoubtedly everyone who lives on a farm will be alone on the ranch one time or another, so our focus is on how to repair and do things by our self.
Wrap It Up – How to Repair A Wire Fence
You’re out doing a monthly perimeter fence check, and low and behold you’ve got 2 of a 3 wire strand busted apart on the back 40. Looks like a moose went through. The bottom wire is buried under a foot of snow drift so the only thing standing between your horse’s wild prairie freedom and the safety of staying in your yard – is you.
We will review the essential tools and supplies you must have on hand to even start this job, and how they work. We will talk about how to hack this job the best you can if you can’t find said essential tools and have to use backups. Then we are going to take these tools and supplies and put them to good use.
That’s right – I’ve got an entire fence line that’s getting ripped out this year – so we have an actual playground out there to apply your skills hands on.
Barbed or smooth wire, the technique is the same. We can also cover basic (very basic) electric fencing issues.
Pants, boots, long sleeves and leather gloves and a git’er done attitude.
