just wondering any one else has done this yet?, my husband has left it up to me to fix a small pasture for abby and star so they can be turned out in the day time. here's what i want to do.......abby and star share a 90 x 60 ft pen with a barn that has 2 box stalls (open right now to walk through) at the south end i have a 16 ft gate that opens in to an area we don't use on the farm and hate to mow. from the back of our garage we have another small area that is about 90 x 40 that is fenced in that i plan to expand, i want to join all 3 areas in to 1 and have been racking my brain for about a week about the electric fence till now. i need to jump the electricty from one side to the other (once end of the garage to the other side) so i can enlage the pasture past my hen house and around my trees and back up to the corner post by the gate. has any one ever used lawn hose to carry the wire current through? if so tell me how that went and did it last long?
