No more hauling water.
No more worrying about sheep escaping.
No more worrying about coyotes having access to our pastures.
No more...you get the idea!
One of my biggest worries when we lose power is the safety of the sheep. Without electricity, the electric fence isn't much of a barrier.
We don't lose power often, but this one lasted four days! Four days of worrying at night that something was going to figure out the fences were off and invite themselves to our ewes!
The sheep usually don't bother with the fence. Goats, we had several breakouts when the fence was off, that is expected.
We did have one ewe surprise us, our black ewe lamb. We found her on the other side of the fence a couple of times. She has now been labeled the "troublemaker" of the flock! She has always looked a little sassy!
I almost feel sorry for her now that the fence is back on, knowing she is going to get quite a surprise when she decides to venture out again.
I am looking into Solar Chargers to see if that would work as a back up for the next time...
