    I was wondering if anyone has installed an electric fence and what you think about them. I just installed one today.

    I installed electric fence to fence off part of my existing pasture to create a dry lot for my horses. It works great. I made it two strands, but high enough that the chickens, geese, ducks and goats can walk under the fence.

    This is inside an existing 2X4 wire fence. Works great and the horses definately respect it. I jung whie straps from mine so that the horses would definately see it.
