Falling Down Fences

There are always jobs to do on the farm and they are always different. Dad says
 "that is one of the best things about being a farmer. Some days you work with animals, other days you work on machinery, and sometimes you can build things."

One of the fences between our farm and another farm is falling down. Sometimes the neighbour's sheep and cows get in our paddocks. So this week Dad has built a new fence!

Dad and PopPop spent one day pulling down the old fence.

The next day a man that works on lots of farms, helping people build fences came to help put up the new one. It didn't take them long at all. He has lots of tools that makes the job much easier.

Dad and I even got to have a drive!

The new fence looks great, those 'rascally' sheep and cows won't get through NOW!


AND look what we saw on the way home!


  1. Hi KT,
    KMC are on holidays now. We had crazy hair day yesterday so the children and teachers came to school with strange hair styles, or colour, or glitter in their hair. Some even put things in their hair. We raised money for a school in Nepal that is in a village in the mountains. Following your blog is a great way to learn about farms. I am always surprised to see the variety of jobs there are to do and how the animals are cared for and the changes in the weather and the land. Is your preschool on holidays? How does a farming family have a holiday?

  2. Hi KT,

    The new fence looks just like the old one - only better. Your Daddy and Pop Pop did a fantastic job!! We hope those cheeky animals dont get out of their paddocks again.

    Love the OWLS

  3. Hello Mrs Cueno

    I hope the children have a great holiday! I am glad you enjoy the blog. I am on holidays too...we think we might go to Sydney for a few days next week. The cows will calve in August so need to be home then!
