Well, fencing time is upon us - not the pointy sword variety but the sharpened stakes and lots of work variety. Currently we're splitting our sheep field in two to make a ram enclosure. We tried an electric fence but Harmon - our ram - has broken through it two years running now. Which is why we're lambing three weeks earlier than planned:)

He blames Scrappy - one of our more brazen ewes - for using the apple tree next to his enclosure for pole dancing. After which, what else could he do but smash the fence down and show his appreciation.

Rams have little self-control.

So, it's either build a stronger fence or ban pole dancing.

We cut the stakes and hammered them in yesterday and cemented in the gatepost. Today we're hammering in the bracing posts then, weather permitting, we'll attach the sheep fencing and make a gate later this week.

Then all we've got to do is persuade Harmon that the grass is indeed greener on the other side of the fence. Always a fun manoeuvre:)

So you're attempting to keep him from appreciating pole dancing by putting stronger poles in his way. The punster in me can only grin.

Rams & Pole Dancing

From what I can tell, I think you might as well try to ban the pole dancing. We did however find a way to keep our guys occupied (for a while anyhow) Check this out from last summer:

Chris - I laughed so hard about your Nigerian Tuna Spam - I had never actually gotten one of those spam letters until yesterday! You did a great job ~ I hope you don't mind, I passed Fluffy's letter along to some friends, but I gave you full credit and listed a link to your blog. Tina T-P
