Alphabe-Thursday letter Z for zapped

The Otuataua Stonefields Historic Reserve is one of Manukau's premier parks. It is an internationally significant heritage landscape and an important natural, archaeological and historic area. Created by volcanic eruptions 20,000 years ago.
We went to Otuataua where there were miles and miles of stone wall. Farmers rent the land to graze their cows.

Some of the walls were crumbling, and instead of rebuilding them, they put through just one line of electric wire. At some spot, they were high enough for you to crawl under, or low enough to edge over. Because of the crumbly rocks, it was quite hard to do it.

At one point I got ZAPPED. It was like a quick sting.

Zap!! A common dare here is to grab an electric fence. I'd never do it myself.

An electric fence? Why ? Who wants who m to be kept out or kept in? It reminds me of the Hadrian Wall in the UK!
Thanks for your kind comment.

My boys used to have contests to see who could hold on to the electric fence the longest. I never quite understood the logic there...
