Electrified Grandkids

Today I thought I would show the grandkids how the electric fence around the chicken coop worked. They would only accept the challenge if I was the one to touch the wire. It worked! Photos courtesy of my wife Sharron.

    • We all got zapped. The ground is very dry now so the current probably wasn’t as strong as usual (electricity travels from the wire, through us and down through the ground to a grounded rod to make the circuit). It doesn’t hurt – just feels weird and it makes you take your hand off the wire immediately 😉
