I don’t think so, but they sure are pushing their luck!!! I have very little patience for sheep that are hard on fences and I have a 3 strike rule that applies to everyone – whether they are friendly or not. Since I am the one that does most of the management with the flock, this works the best and makes my life easier. Well now I am in a quandery because 1/2 the ewe flock has been pushing their way under the fence to the green grass. We are all having to experience some self control because I want to save the grass for the winter. This isn’t the first time that I have locked them off green grass, but one of the new ewes that was added this summer has other plans. I haven’t figured out who it is, but I have a very good idea 🙂
but I don’t have definite proof and of course it is my son’s favorite ewe. I know it is one of the new girls because this was not an issue before and they are the same fences. I will be installing electric fence to hopefully solve the problem and if that doesn’t help then I will find the trouble maker and have a tough decision to make.
