Electric Fence... how high
I am putting up an electric fence to keep horses on one side of the 40 acres that I have access to. There are 3 horses total with two being a Shetland/Quarter cross (ages 10 adn 2) and the third being a Quarter horse (age 4).
The two year old filly is a very curious and has ran through just the wire that we had strung, but it was not electrified. I think she was used to going on the otherside without having a fence there.
We want to run 1 wire so that it would be easier to maintain, due to grass. However, how high or low should this 1 wire be? I am kinda working off of resources that are already provided (where a fence used to be). I don't have much funding to go purchase a bunch of poly tape or new post and etc... All I have is wire, white security tape (to tie on the fence to make it more visible), connectors, and t-posts. All we have is enough wire for 1 strand.
Suggestions please. We already have the posts driven and are ready to run the wire, except we are still trying to figure out how to get it ran to the fence charger.
