Easter at Cotton Tree

Four weeks fencing is enough for me. My motorhome part had arrived from the states and the MH is good to go again. Easter at Cotton Tree and pick up the mail then head south again is the plan.

This photo is of a burnt gully fence we were asked to replace. No was our first thought. Then the challenge of it kicked in when talking about how we could get the materials out and the new in.

Photos never truly show the steepness of the terrain, Himalayan sherpa comes to mind :)

Hard Going at Bundarra

Bundarra progress:

18 properties registered
11 started
23km cleared fence
29km rebuilt fence

When the low flat paddock fences are done the next bit is the high country and Bundarra has its share.

Before and after photos.

The bulldozer has done a great job. Pity he couldn't level the hill for us as well. Looking forward to being on top of this one.
Early morning scoping the job.

About 200m down and another 200 up.

End of the day it's done.

400m of new fence including strainer post stays, not bad!

Cotton Tree and Bundarra photos

Late I know but here are some photos of Cotton Tree and fencing a Bundarra.

Regular readers will know my obsession with sunrise at Cotton Tree and might recognize the Eastern Osprey I have been able to snap before. Here it is with a fresh catch early one morning before I departed.

At Bundarra since arriving I've been working the same farm. We have been helping the farmer build new fences and replace burnt corner fence and gate assemblies. Yep, that tractor is still in service.

Breakfast is served.

Sunrise at Cotton Tree.

An oldie but a goodie.

Welding and concreting fence and gate assemblies.
The quad bike has 20,000km on the clock but has never left the farm.
