Horses and lighting strikes
Ok I'm worried now. I live in MO and we have lots of lightning. My husband and I just moved our horses to our house where they have no shelter put up yet. They do have trees for shelter until next month when we can build a shelter. They are held in with an electric fence. It's maybe about 5 acres total that we have fenced in for now.
Anyhow I was reading that electric fences makes lightning
strikes more common and it's more likely to strike livestock if you have one. Is there any truth to this? Should I shut it off during storms? I don't need the horses running through the fence, but don't need the getting struck by lightning either! Am I just being paranoid?
Ugh I'm so worried now!
