TSC does list OK wire as being available... but it is higher here, due to shipping. Some of the stores do seem to carry it, down in the south western part of Va from what I can find on the websites... but whether they actually have it in stock is another thing. But the prices are the same as the Red brand.

I just looked sheep and goat fence is 459 for 330' at out tsc it not red brand or ok it was beakert or something like that
The beakert is $100 higher here too. I bought a roll of the OK Brand when I put up fence here at son's house. For $100 difference, I can't justify the cost.

I used my magnetic extending green ball thingys on Friday to hook up the trailer. They sure come in handy!

This morning I backed my truck up to one of son’s trucks and pushed the 2 rolls of wire into his truck.

Eve had a Dorper sire. He gifted her with a heavy Matt of wool that doesn’t shed. She hates for me to mess with it. I usually run her through the chute, put a halter and lead rope on her and snub her up tight. Today I took a different approach. With a full belly, she laid down to ruminate. I sat down next to her with a pair of scissors and started snipping a tiny bit at a time.

Her daughter, Cookie, stuck her head through the cow panel and helped. Cookie nibbled at the scissors and stuck her nose in everything.

Ewenique wasn’t getting any attention so she pawed my leg with her hoof. I pushed her away and she came right back. Between Ewenique pawing at me for attention and Cookie nibbling on the scissors, I had lots of help.

Eve looks like a squirrel on meth chewed her woolly mess off, but at least it’s an improvement.
