Well, I didn’t help, and it’s been a couple of days, but Brandon was sweet enough to get me some photos of the finished continuous fence corral.
Big difference… it has now snowed 5” or 6”… and turned cold. Work continues on, though.
This used to be a board fence forming the previous end of our corral. It looks SOOOOO much better! The posts they drove in the ground now have a u shaped cut in the top of the pipe. This saddle holds the top cross bar and they are welded together.
The 20’ sections of continuous fence are then welded to the upright posts. Here’s a bit of trivia you might not have thought about… when building fence or corrals, the horizontal cross pieces, whether they be wood or panels or metal rails, are on the side that will get the most pressure. If you’re keeping animals in a corral, your crosspieces will be on the inside of your posts. That way, when they push against the rails, they will also be pushing against the posts and it will be much more difficult to break the fence and escape!
Jekyll thinks the new corral works! (Don’t tell him the gate’s open!)
