kelpiegirl Posted June 18, 2007 Report Share Posted June 18, 2007 Hi everyone Well, now that the sheep have been here, and things are settling in- with some notable issues, which are now getting resolved, I would like to make a strong pen to put the sheep in, should I need to separate out some that will not be worked- that is one of the issues that came up. Now, some of the sheep are very light, and the appearance of a dog makes them, well, hit the fence. So.... I am asking, what have you all found that works both in construction materials, and size, to keep sheep in, and be able to sort them, and work around with room, and strength of construction. I have combo panels, but when delivered the guy had them rolled up, so, they are warped. I have thought about just using the three combo panels and zip ties, and perhaps a post at each corner- the 4th side will be the wooden rail fence. Then of course, I need a gate. Any suggestions? Also, I need to devise a more permanent shed/shade for these guys. The tarp is actually working quite well, but it is ripping, as we have had some big storms. If I had my druthers, I would like just a three sided run in shed, with the front having half of it closed with a panel, and a smallish gate. Something sturdy, that when I didn't need to do much with them, they could get in and feed, and relax in the shade. Or, would they? Would they prefer shade like I have now- just the tarp to lay under? Anyway, I really want to get started on this, if anyone has any photos or ideas, I would be most grateful.
