New Gallagher solar fence charger

I have been blessed by my neighbors that have just as much acreage as we do but do not have animals to keep the grass and brush down.  They have been kind enough to let us graze our animals on their property.  I did not want to put a permanent fence in so I am installing a temporary one with this battery/solar powered fence charger by the folks down in Australia….. Gallagher.

I have used one inexpensive hand truck from Harbor Freight, two golf cart batteries ( hooked in series for 12v), one B180 gallagher fence charger and One gallagher solar panel.

New calf is growing!

This young bull calf of 2014 is very cute and we are pleased to see how well he feeds.  His mother, Tranquil Star, is a very good mother and stays close to her calf at all times.  We haven’t quite named him yet.

He will most likely be for sale in the fall.
