default Lots of pickies of the latest projects.

Here we go, going to try to post some pickies. Please bear with me, it might take a few tries Laughing



Yay, it worked! This is some of the new fence just finished nad the worlds heaviest gate.



This is the path into the center of the new pasture.



This is the intresting view of some of the inside of the new pasture and the little shed that came with it.



Some of the local wildlife.



A lovely bunch of bunnies. They are some of my new breeding stock. Red New Zealand, Black NZ and Blue NZ. The red is now named Rusty and is somehting special. Such a lovely personality!



Mmmmmmm, how did this get in here?



This is the best pickie yet of my very intrestingly marked Coturnix quail. They dont usually have any markings on their faces.



Right! One of these bunnies is not like the others but I just cant put my finger on what is different about it!?!



This is one of the new cages I built nd the little shed over it. Have now found that the sun BEEEEEEEEMS into it so I have to either change it totally or re-purpos it for soemthing else. ARGH! I also discovered taht no mater how hard it might be to put shingles onto a shed roof, NEVER shingle the roof and try to lift it into place! We reached that special place where it was to dangerous to stop but it was too heavy to go on. When we managed to get it into place I actually went down on one knee I was so dizzy from the effort. Stupid stupid stupid but at least we didnt get hurt and I learned one more way to NOT build a shed Laughing



This is Bowler - my very first buck - enjoying his freedom after escaping again into the bomb site that is my back yard. Why is it that a total re-build/re-arrange makes SUCH a HUUUUUUUUUGE mess to start with?



Here he is again pretending to be one of the cats and at the same time, getting as far away from me as he could. The big clean is going well, that entire area is now cleared. It was rather fun taking a chainsaw to that old pool table. Well, I couldnt move it on my own, now could I lol.



The reclusive author - me mum - in her new cottage in the woods. Doesnt she look happy?



Her gnome isnt too impressed with the local wildlife though!

And thats it for now, more pickies later Wink

Thanks for doing that GB - it's great to see how you're getting on. The bunnies are so sweet.

The world of GB just had me using a shovel, a dog with no bite and a pool to kill a raccoon. All at three in the morning. In my minimallist sleep wear. Its a rather odd place, this world Laughing

After I finally got back to bed I was almost asleep when something with far too many leggs went gamboling across my face.

So I go one way, the spider goes the other and the blanket goes another way.

Not much sleep had last night Laughing
