You are so bad.
For several months this summer he lived in the barn. No fence would contain him.
So at night he'd sleep with the guys and then during the day he'd move to the girls apartment.
He'd find a hole in the fence, we'd fix it, he'd find another hole, we'd fix it.
Just when we thought we had him contained, he'd MAKE a hole and we'd fix it.
Finally after awhile we made the decision to sell him. It wasn't a decision I made easily.
I love my Peeps.
He's my little boy.
But it was no life for him in the barn and it would cost several thousand dollars to make a fence that would contain him. Something we couldn'd afford.
So I placed ads everywhere.
Then on Open Farm Day a little girl came over and before I could scream,
" DON'T TOUCH THAT ELECTRIC FENCE!!!!"
She grabbed the fence! (We had warning signs, but she was too young to read and her parents had their backs turned)
That's why when the turkeys would stick their wattles on the wires it wouldn't zap them.
I just thought they were too stupid to realize it hurt.
That's why Peeper was escaping!
We actually had someone that was coming to buy him that week.
I called and said, sorry but we're keeping my boy!
Our troubles weren't over. We tried everything to fix the fence, check the wires, change the fencer, add another ground, wet the ground. Nothing was working enough to keep him in.
The big girls were happy inside, so they didn't bother trying to leave and Bear had gotten zapped once and never dared to go to the fence again.
So I ordered another fencer from work....a big one.
I didn't frig around.
Meet Super Energizer 5!!
That's Mr. Super Energizer 5 to you!
Oh and Mr. Energizer works.
It's for 50 miles....we only have 4 miles of fence. Heh, heh, heh.
Er, Er, Er. ( Tim the Toolman's voice)
Peeper is safe and sound in the fence.
Have a Blessed Day
