We have 2 horses (10&4) and 2 alpine goats (approx 35" & 26"). Our horses stay in a single strand approx chest height. It doesn't matter if its hot, because they've both been zapped, so they don't touch it.
Our taller goat is almost 8yrs old. He will also stay in 2 strands, even if only held by temporary fence posts
it needs to be hot.
Our younger (age 4 & also shorter) will stay in 5 strands of hot. Actually, that fence has shocked her before, so she stays away from it. She will go under 1 strand, regardless if its hot. We have a 4ft wood fence & she gets out somehow (she does it when I'm not around, so I don't know how.) She is so hard on feces. She stays in woven livestock, but that's it.
So if you want to do the fence you mentioned, then find a goat rescue & tell them about your fence. You'll likely need a quiet, respectful adult. Posted via Mobile Device
