Gates

A lovely day: clear blue skies and snow on the mountains. Spent it making gates and fences around the barn. These should provide access to the barn for the sheep, whichever field they are in and also provide a way through for the tractor (and any pedestrians using the communal path).
The sheep are bemused by it all

Nice. Do you use nails or screws?

Generally nothing - just tension in the thinnings. On very short fences (with 3 posts) I sometimes tie a rope at the top of the posts to stop them spreading (visible in the blog photo). The gates have a few nails to keep the vertical spacing of the thinnings - but only because I didn't have enough to pack them more closely.
