The pigs got out again tonight. This time they have completely destroyed the electric fence in one corner of the yard. Unfortunately they chose to break out in the cover of darkness. Our flashlights aren't recharging and the oil lamps aren't giving off enough light. Limey managed to rewire but now he can't find his tool to tighten it (too dark). He's going to attempt to clean up the barn and lock them in there.
The bigger problem is that they no longer seem to care about the electric fence. Tomorrow is Sunday and the feed store is closed and it's the only place we know of that sells barbed wire which we now hope to keep the pigs in with. Home Hardware doesn't carry it in the store and I know of nowhere else to get it. We can't keep them in the barn long term and clearly they are going to keep breaking out of the paddock.
I don't think I'm going to sleep until the fence gets properly sorted out. I can't wait until this growing season is over.
