So I get a phone call:
Jodie - Hay Jeni - I don't think the electric fencer is working.
Me - hmmm K why?
Jodie - I put Rosie out in the big pasture. She was fine while I worked in the barn for an hour or so. Went in to eat lunch. Come out and find her standing in the fence. It's wrapped around her legs.
Me - thank goodness it's not barbed wire.
Jodie - Oh yah. So I put her in her stall - put the wire back up. Then think - hay I did that WITHOUT SHUTTING OFF THE FENCER and I didn't get shocked.
Me - uh oh
Jodie - yah no wonder she walks through it.
Me - great!
Soooo - Now fencing - I'm thinking that whatever extra I do to this place now I want to be able to take with me when I find my forever home. So... No more post 'n board unless the owner of the property pays for it. He's not opposed but I don't want to wait for it.
So another "electric" electric fencer .. or Solar??? I know Solar is more expensive initially - but in the long run ...
I've already decided that I'm going to use Fence Tape instead of wire. The larger surface area should be beneficial.
I'm not sure what voltage to go with. My initial thought is enough to hold the Dino's in at Jurassic Park - that might be over kill?? I'm not even sure what voltage the current fencer is. That's probably a good starting point.
I'm completely open for suggestions and idea's! Keep them coming Pony - I'm still picturing the crime scene tape! Mary drawing a chalk outline of Brego.. hehehe
