The Pigs are on the Move


The Gman has been wanting to extend the pig run out into our pasture....so over the last while he has been weedeating a wide path around the area he wants to put the pigs into.....











Today he pounded in the Tposts and hung insulators, then we ran the wire....He got the power to it.
A side view...
















Not sure if you can see the white electric fence tape in the distance...but that's the other end of the run...









It took a few minutes...the pigs didn't want to cross that fenceline, even tho there wasn't any wire there anymore....

First Brave Whitey stepped over the line....









Once Patches could see Whitey was OK, he came out too.....










finally, out comes Stubby! They've been running along that path for awhile now and they're having a blast!

I love the pigs Annie... and the electric fencing! Never thought I would like electric fence, but the more I hear about it, the better I like the idea.

You and Gman are really getting things together on your homestead... it's great when the two of you have the same goal... WTG!

Linda, you really should give electric fencing a try...it is SO much easier...and when you want to move the animals to a new area, you just wrap up the wire, pull up the Tposts and put them wherever you want...
