How many of you have seen a horse get out of one strand of electric wire when the wire is on? Will he just press up against it even if it is hot and get out? I'm curious. I have this area to the front of my yard, part mine and part my neighbors. I just fixed that area so he could eat it down and clean it up some. He has a nice big pasture about an acre that I planted Rye recently so I'm keeping him off it. He has gotten out a few times. First time he realized it wasn't hot as I didnt run a connection to it from the pasture fence. I fixed that saturday and he still got out. I know that you won't be able to feel much of the wire because of having shoes on, so between me not being able to feel much, I'm wondering if the wire is hot, or as hot as it's supposed to be.
Fixing it the other day, I know it definitely shocked me as I was fixing an area around the t post and I definitely felt it. Can it be hot in certain areas of the fence and not other parts? It is connected solid and everything, no tree branches or anything touching it. Overall I'm just curious if even the wire is on and operating properly, will a horse even touch it at all?
