Chicken Ridge - to keep the racoons out!

I think a racoon got in an took out all but one of my chickens. I needed to secure the coop better. So I thought I may as well do it in style, and I will have another example of some Iron design I can do. So I took a bit of a break from painting, my son welded the frame up and the panel in, I designed my rooster into the gate and went at it. It is in honor of probably one of my most handsome roosters but also was big and mean. So he had a battle with the crockpot and lost. here is a photo of him that inspired the gate!

Once I found the image of my rooster I liked, I took some photos of grass and designed him in the grass. I also needed to make sure that the gate had no openings big enough to let the chickens out, or the killers in. So "Chicken Ridge" was birthed! 

Here is the gate close to done. It still needs some grinding, painting and hanging. I will show you the final once in place!


So... hopefully, the chickens will be happy  and safe living in style in their little gated community!

"The Zucchini Harvest"

Shucks, I was pretty amazed how popular this photo became on Facebook. I was simply out harvesting some of my zucchinis that got too big. (ready for some grating and bread). I went ahead and laid them out on the Lawn, and they reminded me of what the fisherman and bird hunters will do when they want to brag about their fine accomplishments. So I went ahead with a funny idea, lets pretend I am one of them. So I got my cammo jacket and gun, and had  my son take a photo. Here it is, and the rest is all over facebook. Cheers!

but he also is a fine artist ;)  see is work at www.finewatercolors.com
