Out to Pasture

This past week Maine Man and I put up our first section of electric fencing.

It was much easier than I expected. MM put the poles in the ground. I applied 2 insulators on each pole and we walked from pole to pole applying the electric fence wire.

I also attached a couple strips of red fleece strips in between each section to help remind both the 2 legged and 4 legged kind that theses area are best to avoid.

Cocoa aka Sir Loin QUICKLY learned his boundaries.

One lick of the fencing is all it took. Then the dogs each took a shock. Let’s just say everyone NOW knows what NOT to touch. Plans are to put up another paddock in the near future so we can rotate for grazing. I see another cow in the near future.
