    I'll letcha know what's going on.... soon as I put my son down for a nap. Lol
    Your horses safety depends on replies from people you don't even know? That is so very wrong.

    See, now. I haven't even elaborated and you're putting words into my mouth. Was I being difficult? No. Just technical; an honest attempt as deciphering what you wanted from me. I know that you rarely fail to actually answer forum member's questions and offer the advice and intelligence you act to posses, and instead pick apart every word and completely sway things off topic. Fortunately, for me, I pick up on that and won't bother explaining anything to you as I have yet to receive your answer to MY question. Unfortunately, for you, you've met your match.[

    What is your problem? Feeling a little high on your horse today?

    It is a legitimate question. I too am curious.

    Do you really think the barn owner will care what a bunch of people on the internet say?

    If you do not like the fencing options where you board, move your horse. Far more constructive solution than getting your panties bunched.

    I don't think you understand what you actually posted in this statement.

    You just stated that mls RARELY FAILS to answer a forum member's questions, which means she DOES answer rather than DOESN'T.

    However, your second part of the statement completely contradicts the first, since it appears that you didn't mean what you stated in the first part, and only want to tut-tut about your perception of mls, as well as trying to appear to be the superior intellect. At which you fail miserably, unfortunately for you.

    So exactly who do you think is the one being obtuse here? I'll give you a hint; it's not mls.

    Everyone except you understood mls's question. So either the rest of us are babbling fools (unlikely), or you think far too highly of yourself (likely).

    You sound like an arrogant, entitled boarder who believes you know more than your BO. As Always stated, it's highly unlikely the person actually paying for and putting up the fence is going to want to have a bunch of internet strangers' opinions waved in their face.

    If you don't like the fencing, find another barn. Your horse's safety and well being apparently depend on it.

    And I am obviously invisible, because I have asked the same question.


    *AB thinks of all the fun things that could be done if being invisible was really an option.

    I rarely fail to answer a question? Get off topic?

    Please site ONE place where I have been off topic.

    I do not pick apart words - I answer what I see typed before me.

    If this is how you treat your BO - no wonder you are having issues!

    Quoted WITH the previous sentence as you insinuated was necessary.

    Reworded - your horses safety depends on the replies you get.

    Am I wrong?

    That isn't my intention. I never said it was. I'm not trying to fight. I'm trying to find a solution. So here's a little explanation to whoever is interested:
    It isn't just MY horse. We board on a military base. 4 quarter horses, two arabs, four TB's and Five draft horses are behind an inactive fence, bound to break through and run free on base any moment. This boarding facility is non-profit. We, as a club, are in charge of how the monthly board is spent and how the stables are constructed for ourselves and for future military boarders. I always say, if it's going to be done, it needs to be done right... and with plenty of research to back it up. I'm a compulsive researcher. I do my research and like to also hear from experience, just as I would ask parents of their experiences with Autism even after having seen a psychologist regarding it. I have no intentions of presenting any of this to anyone. I suppose this is just a back up confirmation before I take it to the big guys in charge on base. I'm up against some people who have all too much pride and all too little willingness to admit when they're wrong. Not forgetting to mention many of these boarders are close friends. Not an easy situation. Everyone in the club is dead set that wood is an insulator and has absolutely no affect on the fencing. One of them recently brought an article to the meeting that supported that theory, but I have read otherwise. Which is what leads to my curiosity in hearing from others who *may* have experience with electric fencing. I'm only trying to keep our horses safe. A large telephone poll was recently placed against the ribbon. Since that day, the fence is inactive and they don't want me to remove the poll because it "has nothing to do with it".

    It may have nothing to do with it.

    Get ye a tester. Test before the pole and after the pole. That will give you an idea if the pole is the cause or not.

    There are so many things that can make an electric fence not work. If the ground is not moist enough near the grounding rod system is one of the most common issues. Lack of a good ground there will make the whole fence not work correctly.


    Like I posted before, go to the web site of several of the electric tape manufacturers. They have pretty comprehensive installation manuals that include 'do this' and 'do not do this'.


    Though I think a good fence is a pretty important thing. I think you are being some what dramatic in saying it is imminent that the horses will get out any moment.

    Edit to add - quick type into Google got me This. (I admit, I did not read the whole thing, but it looks to have lots of good information.) (And we all know that Google hates me, so if I found this, I am sure you can find even better things.)
