Fridays Fences #60

As promised, the fence fixing story.  As family was leaving after a wonderful visit Saturday night, we heard a pack of coon hounds barking in the distance.  The only problem was, it wasn't distant enough.  They were on our farm without permission.  The next morning there were a bunch of yearling cattle in front of the house where they shouldn't have been.  
All of the commotion of the dogs and hunters spooked the cattle and they ran through the fence breaking the bottom wire.  
High tensile electric is not the easiest wire to work with.  It was a good thing Emma was there to help.  She can work on fence with her eyes closed.  
After splicing and reattaching, J then had to tighten the wire.  
Take my word for it, there are 2 strands of electric wire there.  
Now, back where you belong.

They must have really been spooked to break that wire! The only thing we've ever had break our hi-tensil wire was a couple of an Amish neighbor's errant mules. Glad Emma was there to help! :)

We have the same problem with moose in the lower field. Trespassing cows? How many went in the freezer? :-}

Such open space. Lucky you.

I am not a fan of high tensile wire. But you just made me wonder how much of our fences got broke yesterday when our mooses went through our place, hmmm.

I can only imagine how awesome it is to trail ride where you live. Lucky you.

Emma must be such a big help!! I guess you can go through an electric fence if you are scared enough, and once the first guy breaks it, everyone else just follows the leader!

Calling by as another participant in the Friday Fences meme, a fence post with a story, loved it.

Wonderful fence! I am not participating this week, but will be back next week! Thought I'd come by though and see what everyone is posting.
