Farm fencing

Sights of the season:

A working electric fence. And no, I didn't test it.

Unused electric fence reels hanging, waiting to be called into service

A bunch of electric fence standards  in storage

Fencing wire, some used, some unused

Electric fence insulators


  1. I am shocked at how I remember the electric fence around the few head of cattle my Dad raised.

  2. I don't think I have ever seen an electric fence up close.

  3. Pauline, I used to be able to hear them click. I found one last year that wasn't clicking and stepped over it. I haven't decided whether my hearing is defective or they are now silent. I can assure you it was on.

  4. I find this post quite shocking.

  5. Electric fences have become hi tech since I dealt with them in the 50's. Yes we did touch the wire. we dared each other to so who could hang on the longest!

  6. I LOVE this post Pauline, I've shifted more electric fences than I care to remember!
    Clever girl, very artistic images!

  7. They are the only thing that would keep the Highland Cattle in the paddock in front of The Cottage. Any ordinary fence was demolished in no time.

  8. I remember you could test the electric fence out with a blade of grass...


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
