Fencing

I’ve been very pleased with the performance of the high tensile fencing. Without it being electrified, I seriously doubt it would keep the goats contained even with more wires closer together as one of the high tensile brochures advertises. It’s springy and stretchy and given half a chance, they’d be in it through a heart beat without getting shocked by it.

We did teach them individually that it will deliver a wallop if they touched it. To do this we lured them one by one to the fence with grain, dumped some on the other side and it took them but one zap to decide that the fence is not something they want to tangle with.

Now if we could just get some real rain to green the grasses up in the pastures I’ll be happy!
