About a month ago I wrote about about netting lambs in electric sheep netting which I have been using for years dividing fields up for better grazing rotation. Well I have finally had it fenced with proper sheep wire a strand of barbed wire & a strand of electric at the top. This makes the fence good for sheep, cattle and horses.
Due to the cost of fencing the gates will have to wait so I will be using electric springs for temporary gates. I will have three strands of electric springs in each gate way gap, lamb height, ewe height and horse height.
The same day as the fencing I was having the ground dug out for for a new floor for my lambing/shearing shed. This was being over seen by Tornado the Shearling Ram.
A few days later was the floor laying day. Before the cement mixer arrived there was lots of talk about if it would fit through the gates and into the yard, so the tension built as we awaited its arrival.
Mixer arrives into our yard still carrying some of the trees it had to squeeze under
Due to the weight of the cement in the mixer it could fit under tree branches when it arrived but leaving with an empty load we had to cut branches down for it to escape.
The next morning Tornado and I test the new floor.
