    Trying to get caught back up. Work has been crazy. I’ve done overtime. Training for a new computer system. I had a stomach bug. All three kids have had pink eye. So much to catch y’all up on and read. Tonight, I’m having trouble sleeping. Going to need coffee in the morning!!!

    @Wehner Homestead, I know, I know -- crazy!!! At least "my" crazy doesn't involve sick patients, or kids at home. Trust me, that's a plus when it comes to guilt & sanity.

    I am able to somewhat move the days & times I work -- huge help. Still...….those 12 hr days + chores will get ya!

    Gotta go -- have a good day, everyone.

    Definitely need coffee this morning ... My goats have stopped respecting the electric fence now they just run through it .... :barnie:heso I be Workin on fixing it to were they can get out again.they keep getting into the chicken yard then jumping that fence(they bend it over then jump it) then they get in to feed barrels. My husband add extra lines on the fence thinking it might help clear it didn't they out again. :duc. So farthe respect the electric fence in the field so I don know why they don't in their pen.

    Geez, too busy yesterday to see this so HAPPY BELATED (by 2 days) BIRTHDAY Bay :)

    Geez, you just can't catch a break!

    Sounds like they need a stronger charger. Our neighbor's black alpaca just lifts the hot wire tape (there are only 3 rows) and walks under. I think there is too much fiber insulation there. He never goes far, just into their yard or the neighbors on either side. Their brown alpaca and the 3 horses never go out.

    But goats don't have the insulating layer so a bigger jolt should set them back.

    Once they learn that there is goodness on the other side of the fence.... hogtieing them might be the only way to keep them locked up.

    Seriously though,the fence will have to be made bear proof now....

    For a goat, I find hot wire only works if THEY want it too :lol:

    It helps low for kids who try to smell it, up high for those standing up to try & get out -- notice both of these efforts involve noses touching it for most times. Goats have a hollow hair shaft, so often they just don't feel it like other animals -- unless they're wet and we all know that seldom happens! Most of my horses respect it. Same field, goats, outta there!
