Look what caught my eye...
the rusty wire loop fence.
long been a huge fan of the old wire loop fencing.
You can still buy it.
But it is tremendously expensive.
Much more that chain link, wood, or vinyl fencing.
Most of the old wire loop fencing that I've seen, has been a pretty standard pattern.
first time that I had ever seen this pattern of wire loop fencing.
I love the little wire looped circle at the top, and the way the finer gauge wire is woven between the sections.
This is the pattern of wire loop fencing that is more commonly seen.
This roll of wire loop fencing is in the back of 'big green'.
We picked it up at the landfill.
With permission of course.
Rusty yes.... but the good kind of rust.
entire roll of wonderfully rusty wire loop fencing.
I'm hoping that there is enough to go all the way around my garden boxes.
I'm wanting to have a beautiful potager's garden, with this gorgeous wire loop fencing around it.
A 'before' picture of one of our three corrals.
Far too rusty for corrals.
Brooke working on getting the corrals painted.
A pair of rubber disposable gloves, then a pair of cotton jersey work gloves over the top.
Dip palms of hands into five gallon bucket of paint.
Incredibly fast and effective painting of metal pole corrals!!
My thanks to my step father in law for this tip.
He has worked at the church farm for many, many years, and let us know that this is the way they do out at the church farm.
Rowdy supervised the project.
He managed to stay out of the way , and not get any paint on him.
The corrals look brand new!
Bad rust ... taken care of.

Safe and sound travel.
