Big surprise but the sheep got out again today. The barn lot and ram pasture is secure. The child left a gate partially unlatched and the sheep pushed through into the orchard. The orchard had two major holes that I knew about. The gate and under the fence near our little foot bridge. I plugged those with panels and then went inside the orchard. The far back corner is a mess. It is falling apart and the sheep were just stepping over it. A very worn trail showed where they were going through. I patched that section and then 30 feet away where the creek had created a new path there was a one foot gap under the fence. I patched that. I did a lot of patching. The far corner is most likely going to have some concentrated attention before the year is out. On a very positive note I found a use for the wagon. I mounted a bar across it and have my spool of fencing wire attached so I can just pull as much wire as I need. All the tools and nails needed for fencing are kept in the rest of the wagon. Very cool use for the wagon.
