    Ok hmm... Love the pink streamers. :) I really can't see 2 wires lol without perfect spacing... Haha. I think I will really think about going with hot tape on top and 2 or 3 strands of high tinsile on bottom... Then I don't have to deal with hanging streamers!!! :)

    Yeah it isn't photogenic. It's not for everyone but works for us and is the most common around here.

    I agree with this, and our old saying is that with horses being typically very food motivated, 95% of 'fencing' is keeping something to eat (grass or free choice hay) available all the time.

    All our mares grew up with electric fencing, mind it without problem, and typically use only one strand of white polyrope, 3' off the ground, posts every 30'. Many folks are amazed, but we have never had a horse escape from this, it's very inexpensive and quick to put up, change, repair, etc.
    In areas that have foals, we add a second strand about 1' off the ground, and on one side of a pasture that is next to a corn field, we have a third strand at about 4' for the deer.

    Have you ever had a problem with wind? And power outages?

    No problem with wind...the rope is bothered by wind a lot less than tape.
    No problem with power outages either...our mares just don't mess with the rope. When we're moving hay/etc into the pasture, we don't even have the charger on. The only time they get shocked is if they are grazing right next to it and a big breeze moves the rope a bit...usually they wind up with it just touching the tip of their ear.

    Ok. Well it looks like it's very cheap, and safe. I just don't live in the middle of country and would worry about them getting out! But my horse is a pig so as long as she's got food! :)
