Help!!! Pregnant Mare with Electric fence

I have a mare that is about 7 months pregnant. We are putting up electric fencing for the first time, so the mare is not used to it. Will the electric shock hurt the fetus? It is an old fence charger from Parker McCrory Co. I think the output is 6,000 volts.

For 7 months I dont think so. How old is the mare? Im sure she'll get the idea pretty quick and stay away! I used to work at a place that put weanlings in a electric paddock to teach them respect for fencec and none of them ever got hurt.

Tomorrows another day, and Im thirsty anyways, so bring on the rain.

The Mare is about 5 years old. She is an ex-racehorse.
