Electric fence question as to grounding out possibly

Using t post and as you put the wire in the insulator, if you wrap it around that insulator once then on to the next, will that cause the fencing to not get the correct voltage and charge the fence properly?

Wrapping the wire around the plastic insulator will not cause any problems with the fence but don't do it. You can't pull the wire nice and tight when you do that. Just run it through the little prongs and on to the next one. When you get to the porcelin/plastic insulators on your wood/end post, pull tight and wrap around those.
