I left the gate lock open so Beau could follow me up to the barn, and apparently when he pushed it open, the gate came tumbling down. When I started back to the house, this is what I saw. This is only one of the reasons, it is difficult to accomplish what is on my list. It is a vicious cycle trying to keep everything from wearing out before one is done using it. In our case, fence posts have been here long enough that some of the posts are rotting.
