Question Help End a Never-Ending Boarding Stable Dispute (Electric Fencing)

This stuff:


Say someone wrapped it around a wooden post instead of using plastic clips. Would it ground out the electrical current and make the fence inactive?

Yes, most likely. Wood is not overly conductive but it certainly would make the fence pretty useless after a couple of posts that is for sure.

Some form of none conductive insulation is required, even with wood posts.

What AB said is correct. If it's attached to just one post it's going to decrease the current. If they're attaching it to all the posts like that it's going to cause problems.

What do you want me to elaborate on? Why more horse's safety is threatened, or why replies from experienced people are so important?

MLS quoted your line about your horses safety depending on it, so I am guessing that is what is being asked about.....


I am wondering too, why does your horses safety depend on it?


If your barn owner believe what they believe, no amount of unknown posters on an internet BB will change their mind. You will have far better luck looking up installation fact sheets and showing the barn owner that.

I am sure all the major electric tape manufacturers have on line versions of their installation do and do not lists.

Edit to add - MLS posted at the same time I did.

The word "it" forces one to refer to the prior sentence in order for the quote to make sense. That's why I'm still unsure what you are asking me to elaborate on.
I'll letcha know what's going on.... soon as I put my son down for a nap. lol

The word "it" means nothing more than the end of the quoted sentence here.

Let me clarify (because it sure sounds like you are trying to be difficult) - Please explain why your horse's life depends on lots of people posting in this thread.
