This electric fence has been a thorn in my side for over a month. We just have to get it done. The horses have nothing to eat and I'm tired of putting upon the neighbors, who have been so generous with their hay. They trade it for our eggs, but we all know they are getting the worst end of the trade!
But we have been having a heck of a time getting it going. Some friends came over and helped us repair an 80 foot section of fence that the horses had pushed over to get into the goat pen. We had also repaired another 50 foot section they had torn up to get into the paddock.
We finally got the wire up, the unit on a post and covered up with a protective box.
No chances this time. This unit is powerful - a 50 mile range and 2 joules, it's attached to electricity rather than a battery, we've got heavy duty wire, and it's strung three times, for now, with more to added later.
And we tested it.
It is not working! GAH!
