Have you ever seen a disaster in the making yet you couldn't convince your significant other of the error in their ways? The Commander can't mow the side of the septic mount because of the slope so he figured he would fence it off for the rams to eat. He couldn't drive fence posts into the mound itself so he figured he would build a snow fence barrier.
The support for his fence line designed to keep four full grown rams in was made up of twine, a soccer rebounder, a few tree limbs, a lawn chair, and three tin sheets.
Even Hoss thought; "You can't be serious, don't you notice that I'm a 120 pounds plus Icelandic ram?" Hoss broke through the "fence" in less than 5 minutes. Having not learned his lesson the Commander "re-secured" the fence with a bit more twine. I tried to tell him....
The next thing I knew I heard the Commander crying for help outside. When I got out there I found him on one side of the fence pushing and Hoss on the other side doing the same. Hoss had four legs and a leverage (and intelligence?) advantage, but fortunately for the Commander I was able to lure Hoss back behind the real fence using a grain bin.
Really Sara? You couldn't find a better stick to play with?
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
