Thanks for the compliments Bob, Tom and George.

It's been a productive week. I built the 5 gates and completed the fencing and gate posts. I built a styrene fixture to hold the parts for the gate posts during assembly. However I just assembled the gates over the drawing. The area under the ramp would be difficult to dirt-in after I added the fencing, so I took care of that.

Next up is to complete the dirt on the base and then install the gates and the gate post stiffiners. I've ordered the cattle for the pen and have horses and cowboys already.

As the end comes in sight, the excitement and fun builds.
