But first we found This in the pasture!!
While working on the fence..
It was eating a grasshopper!
So of course my buggy kid just Had to catch it!
It was cleaning up from its meal!Lol
The girls were letting it crawl all over.
Pretty sure this is a female..
Some of the fence line..
Kyle weedwhacked it yesterday.
We ran 3 strands 2 hot and one not..
I may have to go back and lower it.
Then add a 4th strand of wire on top.
It wouldnt be hot either.
Kara was out in it taking pics.
Its pretty thick and has all sorts of stuff for the goats to eat out there!
Its laid over some after the rain yesterday though.
Of course the trees attract them almost immediately!
Ms Airplane ears.. Chowing down.
Reaching for the trees!
Once I got Kyle out there we got it done in no time! He is my hero! He sees my efforts and takes pity on me!Lol We ran 3 strands of electric fence.. But I am thinking I will go back and add a 4th strand to the top just for kicks and giggles... It will alternate from top to bottom hot-not-hot-not. This way they try to squeeze through they will ground out with the not hot wire and shock them.. Which they rarely try it and hit it only on accident now.
So once we got the fence up and on it was time to show them the new pasture.. Okay they were Convinced I was trying to feed them to the ravenous wolves next door!(10-12lbs dogs next door that you can hear just not see). We pulled them through the gate and they started inspecting. Nibbling here and there... Then they figured I wasn't trying to kill them and ignored me and went to pigging out.
But in the mean time all of the wether babies didn't figure out how to get where mom was and were hollering. They finally got the nerve to Run through the gate.. All but one.. He never would go over there. Just hollered for mom who ignored him. She was busy and he wasn't dying...LOL They all even figured out how to get back to the barn with out me going to find them!. Now I have to get some more step ins and make it to where they cant get into the 1st pasture... Then I will have semi rotational grazing!... All in time...
Its raining again. The cool front has hit and it produced a good line of storms. Temps are suppose to be pretty cool for the next week or so.. That's a good thing..
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
