101 uses for hurdles?
« on: August 20, 2014, 08:28:53 am »
Ok what do you use yours for?  (apart from penning sheep!!)

So far we have mini gates, temporary hedge hole mending, a lamb creep feeder, .........

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

I use 2 as gates across the driveway to stop the dog getting out. OH did promise me nice wooden gates for christmas (this was last year) but didn't say which christmas I would be getting them  ;D

Oh blimey, where to start. Every lambing I have to buy new hurdles cos last year's ones for lambing pens have now become an integral part of the place.

Pens for: lambs, chooks, geese, feral cats
Anti-escape devices for goat kids (Ha Ha, waste of time that!)
Race and holding pens, with gates.
'Temporary’ fence so I can take the quad bike to the hay barn without the tups escaping onto the road.
Creep feeders
Temporary yard gate (works so well I am not getting round to mending the proper one

I used to have four almost rusted through with rusted through at the bottom connector/hinge  plates .
They ended up as inverted " V's "' through which I grew my runner and tall telegraph  peas up them  till I binned them  and stated using 5 mm electro plated  100 x 150 mm gav weldmesh arches instead.
