The trouble with goats or sheep is that once they have gotten through a fence, they do keep trying- afterall it worked once for them , it is likely to work again.
But we have outsmarted them, finally.
This wooden top rail is too high for them to jump over.
As far as safety goes , the goats have known what barbed wire is all along and know to respect it. They checked out this top wire as soon as they came into the paddock and didn't hurt themselves on it at all because they knew what it was.
Though if I had wilder goats that weren't used to being handled and spooked easily, I wouldn't use this.I would then use the wooden top rail.
Honey went along every inch looking for an opening.
And Stewart...well, unless Honey has got through a fence, he generally doesn't bother. She usually tells him whether it is an attemptable mischievious act or not.
So there you have it , People Score 1 / Goat Score Zero . We are winning for a change.
