On Electric Fencing

It was suggested that this was truly a "one for the book" (short) story. Perhaps so; "T" and "H", this one's for you.

If you are going to set up electric fencing in a new pasture for sheep, especially sheep who are not particularly used to electric fencing, there is one component that you need to remember. Pay very close attention, now. The crucial part of this is "electric". Do not turn off electricity to the new fence the moment the sheep are turned loose in their new space.

Of course if you are looking to let your dog have an opportunity to gather sheep and bring them back just before they gallivant down the driveway and off into the woods, then maybe leaving the juice off is a good idea!

Just kidding, guys, glad all turned out well. And most of all, Kudos to "D" who put it all back together!
