For some time now George had been going around his paddock and lifting the electric fence posts out with his teeth. There is a little peg on them that you stand on to push them into the ground. It is that little peg that he gets his pearly whites around and gently leavers it out the ground. There is no benefit to either him or Little Lad just to do one, so he does two or three in a row. This renders said electric fence useless, as it is now lying on the ground and easy to jump over. When he first started doing this it was just Little Lad who would bound over to new juicy grass and George would stay behind and split on his bestie by braying until someone would come out to see what was going on. However he is being led astray by Little Lad and now follows him into the out of bounds pasture.
We thought we cracked it by giving George some of the posts in his paddock to satisfy his curiosity, but no he is up to his usual tricks again ….. you have to hand it to him, as far as we are aware he has never got a shock and it must take some skill when you’ve got ears the size of his not to get zapped.
