Good Fences

Temporary electric net fencing is a godsend for dividing the pasture into paddocks for rotational grazing.  Here we've set up a temporary paddock outside the perimeter fencing so that the bio-mowers - the wethers and some of the yearlings - can help us maintain part of the barnyard.  After spending the day out in the barnyard, they are brought back into the barn at night.

  1. Hubs and I decided we need one of these temporary net fences to keep the critters out of our garden. Love the lambs in your header.

  11. That does sound like a great investment. How nice to have help with the mowing--and it's good for them, too. Win-Win.

  12. I only single electric wire, but that is only good for ponies, not sheep. Must try and get hold of that netting! I wonder why you take your sheep in at night
