A Family Trip to Our Pasture Land

Last Sunday we were still recovering from the flu so we all stayed home from church.  It was an absolutely beautiful day out, so we decided to walk over to our pasture land, "vision cast", and see the completed fence! :)

Our little country road.
I know I've posted the same sort of picture many times before but I love where I live, and I just take pictures of what I love: wide open fields, forests and the deep blue sky with puffy clouds.  This is where I live - I love it. :)

When we were all together we walked on the road to our pasture.  When we came to it Caleb opened the pasture for us by "opening" the gate of the electric fence.

 On the land!!
You can see the land by our house to the right of the picture.

 Daddy bought 4 lines of electric fence, figuring we'd have a horse, cow, chickens and maybe some goats and sheep one day.

The top strand of electric fence.
I had no idea our electric fence was going to be black and white! :)  It was sorta' pretty. :)

(Daddy is 6 feet tall so that gives you an idea of how tall the fence is.)

Our chicken coop.
(It was previously covered but that only lasted for a few months, so we've got to put up some more plastic before we can put more chickens in it.  Currently we're waiting for batting strips and then the plastic will cover the coop and we'll probably be getting more chickens!)
The electric poultry fence around the coop is to keep predators out at night.

The entrance to our pasture! 
Hopefully one day soon you'll see a barn and maybe a cow/horse in the pictures of the farm! :)


After some time on the pasture we walked down our road for a little while longer.                   


The sunset was so beautiful that Sunday night:                           
Ah - nothing like the country life!

Anyways, Daddy got our barn plans looked at and the price wasn't too bad!  He's now going to get 2 more opinions on the price of the materials.  We're getting closer to having a little farm! :) :)

Delighting in Jesus,
Kimber :)

P.S.  - A perfect verse for the process we've been in for many years, of getting a horse and cow, would be Proverbs 16:9, "A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps."

  1. I love your little farm! Lexi may have already told you, but we are almost done our chicken coop (finally!), and we hare going to work on our garden here soon, though it may be a bit later than we hoped. Hope to see you all soon!
