We use hot tape, but only as interior fencing, not boundaries. After seeing one of my horses bolt after chucking me
Off and run straight through it, snapping it like it wasn't there, I just don't trust it enough for boundaries. However all
Our other horses respect it just fine and we use it to restrict their grazing.
Two plain wires isn't enough for ours when they get hungry, they walk through.
We have about five plain wires and barb on top (cattle fencing) which works fine. On some fences we have an electric standoff which is even better as they can't lean on the fence at all. However make sure it is high enough, at the station one filly got her leg hooked over the hot wire, luckily it had shorted out or it would have been a disaster.
My ideal would be post and rail or the new plastic strip fencing, with either an electric stand off or you can get the top part of the plastic strip electrified. But that gets exxy! Posted via Mobile Device
