One of the biggest parts of getting our place ready for sheep is the fencing. The sheep need to be safely fenced in of course. When we bought our place, the fencing was in disrepair to say the least. Held together by twine in places, holes, bent, not on the property lines...
It looked like this ^.
So we began working on new fencing. Taking down the old, salvaging what we can for other uses, and putting up new woven wire sheep fencing around the property. We will also need to do internal fences, but this is another task.
And here you can see the old vs. the new. The new is very sturdy. Fencing isn't cheap either. Even installing the majority of this ourselves (which is a lot of work....) this stuff cost a pretty penny! Luckily, once it's up, with maintenance, we won't ever need to do this again.
