I was tossing around the idea of electric fence for a pasture area. I then began to question the idea because it will be for two Pregnant Nigerian does.


Have you used electric fence with pregnant does? Any problems?? Is this SAFE??

The majority of my does apparently can either hear or sense electricity. My old waterer had a tank heater and my hard water corroded it fairly often resulting in the water becoming electrified. I always knew when that had happened because the does would walk towards it, reach a certain point in the pen, stop, raise their heads, look at it, then turn and walk away. After the tank heater was swapped out, they walked right up and drank. I don't know how common it is for that to happen, but it is something to consider.
