The story goes back two years when I first purchased goats. I fenced in part of my land with six strand electric fence. Every thing wen't well until this spring when I bought two new nannys. These girls treated the fence like it wasn't even there. They ended up in my neighbors yard and made a mess of things. I added some horse tape and they were alright with it until two weeks ago. Now their off and running again (all of them except the buck). The fence is hot and I've tightend it and added step in posts every twelve feet. The funny thing is a couple of months ago I finished fencing an eight acre area with pasture and brush in it (woven wire this time). They won't go near it. I've moved their shed and food down there and they eat and come back up. I'm thinking about building a training fence. How many strands should I use and How many square feet per goat should I allow for? Also, how long should I keep them in it (assuming they'll stay in it to begin with)? Thanks, these things are getting on my last nerve.
