I'm moving and barn area is fenced with barb wire. Is this a problem for my goats? Right now they have electric fencing.
In some states that is illegal (I think Washington is one of them); because the old electric fencers use to have a continuous run of electricity and if something got stuck on the fence (because of the barbs) they got FRIED!Electric barb wire? Never heard of that before.
How many inches apart are the wires on your 8 strand fence? I've got around 70 acres fenced with five strand barb wire. I'd like to make it all goat proof.My goats are behind an 8 strand barb wire fence. They can't get out and don't mess with the fence. Nothing can get in either. Our cows are also behind a barb wire fence and they respect it.
If you really want to have them on the whole area you could put up a couple strands of electric fence to keep them away from the barb wire.
