    thing as "humane" barbed wire, I believe there are types of wire that work well but don't tear into the flesh. They probably wouldn't be able to tangle themselves in a securely attached single strand.

    I doubt that ewes would push through sturdy fencing unless there is something particularly tasty on the other side, although they might jump it. Rams would be more aggressive. You might want to look into the history of the current fencing to see how it has fared.

    You do not want to have to go out in the middle of the night and extricate a terrified sheep from the wire.
