Fencing Fun

Yesterday’s task was focussed around lamb-proofing our lambing paddock fence so that lambs cannot fall onto electric wires, and foxes cannot come through the non-electrified wires to hurt our babies whilst they are still new and weak. The image to the left shows the fence as it was – with live wires second and fourth from the bottom.

This is the ‘after’ photo, showing the 2 foot high chicken mesh we attached to the fence after first disconnecting the live wires and removing the insulators. There are still two live wires near the top of the fence to help prevent foxes from climbing over the fence into the lambing paddock.
