    i just priced out electric fencing for our place, and its so cheap hubby said we can put up a fence after christmas!!! YAY! i am SO happy! now i can continue to free range the chickens, which we were not going to be able to do, and the goats will have the whole acre to run around on! i am on cloud nine! i cant wait to tell the animals!!!

    you know you are silly when you get excited over a new fence!!!

    Congrats! As long as we have our dumb dog we don't need anything. He keeps everything out of our yard, including us sometimes.

    lol. i am not so much worried about keeping animals OUT, its more along the lines of keeping animals IN... they like to go visit the neighbors nice lush yard... i have no water rights, so my acres just desert scrub with huge cottonwoods. they will have to learn to love it, lol!

    $31.20 for posts (we live in BLM country, permits for cedar posts are $0.40 a peice, yay!)
    $189.75 for 6560 feet of polywire w/ 5 yr warranty
    $126.95 for Zareba Bulldozer 2 Joule Charger
    $20.00 for insulators and wire tighteners

    Grand Total- $367.90 to fence our whole place!!!

    the first stuff we were looking at was going to cost us about 1500 bucks!
