Fence Painting

Donald Haughton isn’t afraid of a hard day’s work.
“Somebody’s got to do it,” he said.

White paint spits off his brush as he quickly runs it over the old, weathered white wash that continues to bind with the wood surface.

Usually working on home improvement projects, he’s been working for the past two years doing odd jobs on a farm.

Haughton has been mending, scraping and painting the fence on the west side of the property for a week. And he hasn’t been entirely alone working under the strong summer sun. “Sometimes the cows come up to the fence,” he said. “They’re gentle creatures, I never worry.”
