I absolutely love this breed! One day I'll have some but concentrating on other breeds at the min.
I'd be interested to see how you go on finishing the lambs, keep us updated  :thumbsup:

(By the way, I have fencing similar to this but not as high and my goats have never jumped. Big floppy bagged ones and pygmys )

My neighbour has similar fencing to you and keeps a herd of 40 goats and I don't think he has a problem with them trying to jump out.
I have a horror of barbed wire and would never use it myself but, then, my animals are always straying!!

Barbed wire is horrible stuff. For animals and people. Unless you have cattle who like to lean over fences why have it at all?

Probably a better bet that a man trap then. Though I find the yellow main electric signs quite handy.
