I finished the upper fence today. Another 300 feet done (almost done, it needs stays but I don't have any yet, not till late May or June) and ready for animals. Tonight, Monica and I went up on the hill and relocated the electrical fence straight up the hillside. It opened up another 200% of pasture for the sheep. On a plus note, all that fencing in the yard gave great respect of the white fence to the sheep. I forgot to plug in the last two strands of fence and the sheep never even tried to push past it! They just saw an evil biting white fence and stayed away. This time I remembered to plug the electrical connections together. This should buy me a couple more weeks. I will start working on the next 300 feet of fence next week. I need to dig out the weeds, remove the bottom three strands, straighten half the posts, build a rock crib then tighten the top four strands of wire. Most of the woven fence is approximately the same height, so I am just going to set the top four strands at the newly completed neighboring height and hope the woven wire fits. If needed I can add a single strand either above the woven or at the top of the fence to make up any difference. I called a guy about buying a lot of the sheep, the price is only $1/lb live weight for lamb no matter the age (as long as it is under 1 year old it is still lamb). So I renewed the craigslist ad. I didn't change the price but next week I will lower the price on craigslist. I plan on butchering a couple myslef this year. I would like to do that in about 6 weeks. The sheep need to fatten up.
