    So I came home today in a hurry to check on the household and lo and behold Mr. Ed and 2 of my gals were down at the creek - way out of their fenced in area!

    So I go down and round them up and as we're coming back up the drive, (On the right is the netting that their supposed be in inside of) all of a sudden they start to bounce up against it and I'm thinking - what's their problem. Well, within a couple of bounces they all, one at a time bounced right through and into their area. Seems that they realized that the deer had ripped a long slice in the fence that I hadn't even noticed! So who's the dumb one here![​IMG]

    Of course panic set in and patching was done. But I had to laugh at them. The grass/woods are always greener on the other side of the fence.

    ps. war on the deer. I'm installing deer fencing so they can't get through and/or rip the fence. Also it'll keep the deer from eating the feed.

    Well the best way to find the hole is to let them show you were it is! [​IMG]
