I've taken a liking to this charger.
Parmak Solar-Pack 6 Fence Charger - Horse.com

It seems to work well.

This is what I use for my 200x80 ft horse paddock. It's pretty good for the price. Would adding more ground rods make the "shock" stronger?

We have two solar chargers. One for each pasture. Grand total of 11 acres and they work great. Got them at tractor supply. Going on 4 years so far and no problems.

I have a STAFIX SXS. Stafix SXS Solar Energizer by STAFIX | Southwest Agriculture Supplies

I have had it for a couple of years with no problems. The first year it was even in the shade for half the day(solar charged) and it still would knock you on your butt. Remember your ground rods are pretty important as with the amount of joules.

I bought this brand from the local co-op because of a recommendation from a friend who trades a lot of sale barn cattle who are soured and will not hesitate to bust through several strands of barbed wire. When he gets them home he "trains" them to the hot wire just ran around the perimeter of his pipe corrals. After a couple of days of testing his hotwire and learning he has no issue turning them out on the pasture. Of course his charger is an electric one and a much more expensive high powered model as cattle require a larger shock than horses, but I have not had a horse run through mine yet.( I think his puts out 2 joules? While mine is only .5 joules but gets the job done)

What do you think about this charger? Would it work for a 2-3 acre pasture?

The site I sent you has the Parmak for less than Stateline Parmak. About $11 I believe. Also Parmak has almost 1 full joule of power compaired to .04. Also 1 bad review on that Fi -Shock on S/L site.. I myself have no experience with F/S products. If $ not an issue go for Parmak. Just my 2 cents.

No, that as meant as a pet deterrent, not to keep livestock in. You don't want your horses to learn that they can push through it. They have to get a good enough shock to teach them to respect the wire.

We have a solar charger on ours that pulses, so it does not have a "steady" stream of current, but we had a problem using the poly wire, the horses were pushing against it. We went with the galvanized electric fencing wire and have not had a problem since.
