So, last week I posted about the new fence we put up in the back yard. So far it’s working great now that Aarron added his modification. The goats are finally staying put in their area like they are supposed to and they can no longer get to the chicken feed.
So for now everyone is good. The picture above and below show the fence before Aarron added the modification to the fence. We had to try to figure out how they were getting into the chicken area. After watching them for a short time, we found they were crawling under the bottom of the fence.
My Astra was the only one that was not crawling under the fence. I think it may just be because she doesn’t want to get dirty, whereas Desi and her babies are always into something. This was just the next thing they saw to do what they aren’t supposed to do.
Aarron had some wrought iron scraps laying around that fit the bill perfectly to fix the fence so the girls can’t get under it. He welded these pieces to the bottom of the fence and so far Desi and her girls have not been able to get under the fence or into the chicken area but the chickens can still get to the entire yard to free range. I love that my husband is so resourceful.
Have a great day!

The fence looks good! I’m glad the goats are staying where they need to be.
It is exciting to have some new projects going and see some progress. Hopefully it keeps the animals in place!

I don’t feel right unless I have an ongoing project. Right now I am working on a countertop for my outdoor kitchen.

That was a really great fence, I think we must also put some fence on our small farm. I enjoy reading this thanks for sharing!
I think it looks great. We have some chickens and ducks and need a new fence. I’m looking forward to the day we get around to getting a fence, but for now we have other projects to work on.
A good fence is essential to keep the animals from straying. I’d love to be able to have goats etc but there is no space where we are.
I’m happy to hear the fence is working out well, I’m sure it adds some peace of mind for you all to know the goats are safe within the enclosure!
I’m glad that you were able to figure out how the goats were getting out of the fence. From what I can tell, goats are kinda like kids, you have to keep an eye out for them because they like to do things they aren’t supposed. I’ve seen a goat on a roof before in a photo.
