Thank-You Jess!


The end result of my pasture lock out! Cattle panels! Who'd a thunk! $21.59 each for a 16 foot panel. The chains and clips cost me more than the panels, but WOW! Misty gave me the dirtiest look when I was done! And I found a break in the electric which probably contributed to the easy break outs! Kola tried to eat my foot as I sat on the paddock ground trying to re-wire the fence, which then resulted in a quick pop of her nose. Thank God for sturdy boots! And people wonder why I live in my boots!

Well that should throw a monkey wrench in their escape routes! Nice job.

C'mon, Callie! We know why you really wear boots. 'Tis to put up our backsides occasionally. Now ain't that the dang truth?

I hope that plugs up all their holes........but it's hard telling what they see. lol

Andrea said...

I am glad you got it all fixed! Now they will really have to be magic to get out of their!!

And I would have had some toes nibbled off, I am always wearing flip flops out side to the barn! I know, so safe :)

Hope that does the trick keeping her in! Silly mare!

Callie said...

Well, She did make an attempt at it once I had the electric off for the day. Didn't get through but tore down the tape. Electric will now stay on 24/7 for sure! And I need one more cattle panel for the last weak link in the fence because she had a go at that as well! LOL

Great fence.

That girl ... she sure has a mind to trot herself down town!

About your boots ... I thought everyone wore boots!

Denise- LessIsMore17 said...

It's a beautiful fence. It's a pity it's so expensive. But from now on, you'll be quiet with your mares.

Glad it worked! The panels are a little cheaper and easier to use then the gates. It looks good to boot.

What a clever fencing idea. And what a clever escape artist you have, too!
I hope this does the trick permanently.

I'm going to look into those cattle panels for our 'woolie' pasture. The panels look they would be easy to move around and such, so I can rotate pastures.

Are they stiff, unlike typically fencing, so that goats can't stand on them and bend them out of shape?

Lisa, They're flexable as far as curling them horizontal, but having goats myself, I have to say I'm not sure they'd be stiff enough. My fricking goats can destroy anything!
