Make sure you use proper technique and tools so you dont injure yourself when building those feeder pens.

Lol. Did either of those posts even move an inch?

That is one job I just don't enjoy. But it is good once you get a good pen finished

Have to admit the second post was on rock and didnt budge. I didnt tell her until after the video.

First video she got it in about it about a foot and I finished the last 6".

I never asked her to help either. Id drive in 4 or 5 and go back to put on the wire clips and she would start on the next one. She wasnt fast, but wasnt afraid to work and was a good sport with the video.

Think Im going to hang on to her

My wife cant boil an egg, but she like to help fill feeders and set up blinds etc. nice to have a helper... cant wait till my boy is big enough to help. She is a good sport for letting you make the video, no doubt a keeper

LOL That is funny. I like when you wipe your forehead in the second one that's great.

That's a good woman.

Wouldn't catch mi esposa out there doing that. She can cook, though.

She's a keeper. We should team up on a lease. Mine is just like her. They'd do all the work.

She had gloves the first day. Wasnt expecting to drive any the second day but came across a random T-Post and needed to get my camera further from pen.

I wish i had some secret training program that I could get rich off of, but I honestly just got lucky. Turns out, shes just like her mom and a hard worker.

Looks like her weekends are booked up through hunting season. I just hope she takes it well when I let her know.

I'm willing to share labor for west texas ducks.

Those videos are great, especially since the posts weren't going anywhere! Def a keeper!

For years and years we've been doing the same thing - manually driving the posts in until this year we got a gas powered T Post driver. It drove it in straighter and stronger than a manual driver, and only took less 20 seconds per post. We are in a sandy area so it went in like butter but we had the entire pin completed in an hour or so without feeling sore or exhausted. We tried it in a rocky area and it still worked great, took a little longer.

Hog Panels to keep the destructive annoying pigs out. 1 T-Post ever 8 feet.
