Fencing…

It’s been a busy week here on the farm, one week before lambing.  We have successfully moved rams across the road, fixed fence, moved ewes to the maternity ward, fixed fence, and fixed fence! LOL!    With my husband working loooong hours and now my oldest son getting a full-time job, off the farm, I am proud to say I fixed the electric, seven strand fencing  that encloses about 20 acres where the rams are right now.  Our electric fencer puts out a little over 7000 volts  and our fence was registering at 1500 volts, at best!  Ugh, this fence has been a pain and it took me two half days to get up to  6500  but it is the highest it has been in two years.  Definitely enough juice to keep the sheep in and other critters out!

Garrett and Hayden were my emergency runners and Tori was the official phone gal, who ran back and forth to plug and unplug the fencer in when I needed to fix things….
