My property is a series of ups, downs, hills, gullies; all rock-filled. This makes keeping the grass maintained a real challenge. Enter the sheepies. I have a couple of lengths of electronet, a good-sized charger and a plan or two. Not having to negotiate the goats AND the sheep has been very helpful, as the grid on the netting is large enough for the little Nigerians to think they can shove their bodies through. The last time I put Sage and Chickie (who is flourishing with all of his wether buddies) in the electronet, it was a disaster - Sage got all tangled up and, thank God, I was outside and able disconnect the juice.
I set the fencing up to have the gang clean up a troublesome slope. As happens every spring when I first set it up, I wonder if the power is getting through the fencing. But I am a coward and will not touch it to find out. I know it won't knock me dead, but I have an intense dislike of shocks. Which is why my carpal tunnel persists - the test involves putting electrodes on your hand and arm to measure the blockage. Not happening. I digress.
|OMG! Stay away from that white thing!|
|Lots and lots of luscious vegetation.|
|What did you say about the size of my hiney???|
