The chicken moat was six feet high.
Dax and Benny preclude fencing needs.
Some guys just thrive on making things more complicated than need be. In
addition to no capital outlay, no labor time or effort and no maintenance,
the no-fence option allows the natural landscape to be enjoyed without
obstruction. Something there is in me that does not like fences. I strive
for beauty, truth, freedom and living a simple life. If that makes me a
simpleton, so be it.
