    Ok so the goats had a good laugh at me today. I fixed the electric since Dorcas and Maxinne were so smart they figured out how to get through the fence without getting zapped. :roll: So I put plastic fencing around the outside of the fence and didn't turn the fence off.... well I think i got zapped about 20 times today. :slapfloor: I didn't turn the fence off because I wanted Dorcas and Maxinne to get zapped if they tried to go through the plastic fence I was putting up. Well none of them got zapped and the goats had a great time watching me cuss and swear. I guess I was just too lazy to put them in the other paddock.. cause I need to take each individual goat over there. So.. yeah the goats got the last laugh today. :ROFL:

    your goats were probably saying " I am glad it is not me,,chuckle ,chuckle,whispering to each other............. those humans are funny creatures"

    I was bit by the hot line before,squatted to go under it .....my back was woke up...... with a uncontrollable sound blurting out,,,of course it hurt,,but I then laughed at myself...............and said " It works"............. :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

    I wish it would zap the goats like it does me. they have all the fiber on them and they do not feel it like I do. I wonder why it does not bother them when their horns touch it? :hammer:

    Lol I know.

    Anyways I got my payback the other day. I was feeding them beans from the garden that had gotten huge! Well a couple of them were too greedy and tried to stand on the electric fence. :roll: I don't know what they were thinking! :ROFL:

    Awww Stacey....you don't know what you are missing! It's not really all that bad...anice tingle after the initial shock, just not something I'd do purposely :ROFL:


    Unless you get nailed with one of the heavy duty super juicers that knock you on your butt.....NOT ever wanting that to happen!

    I was running down the road in the dark and my cousin jumped at me from in front and I tried to cut across into my uncle's lawn to avoiv collision and ended up doubled over an electric fence on high . . . . my cousin said he had never heard me scream like that and he laughed til he cried. . . . let's just say I had alot of energy after that . . . .

    HA HA Mine is very strong, not super duty. But if you touch it and something grounded..... :shocked: It's the only kind my goats will listen to.

    I did touch a REALLY strong one once... I was on the ground for about 5 mins wondering what hit me. :ROFL:

    Mine is a 5 mile fencer...strong enough though...the girls enclosure is a 1/4 mile of wire and the day hubby grabbed MY arm to "test" it, I was BAREFOOT in dewy grass....needless to say, I got the jolt but he got it worse...guess I had a "good" ground :slapfloor:

    I don't think I've been zapped yet. . . . well, maybe once by a small one. My poor little sister, she's six yrs. got zapped today by the fence meant to keep the cattle out!! Poor baby! She was crying so hard! :tears: :( I felt so bad for her. It's on really high, not meant for the goats but to keep the cows out of the goat pen. Anyways, it hurt her bad. . . . :(
