Well I was going to do two strands. Then electrify both strands, I have two strands up now and one of my minis will step through the middle of the two strands, then flip the top strand up with her nose and walk through the fencing. So I figured I'd use 2 or 3 ground rods like I have now, then run the two strands of electrified poly rope. My other mare is 22yrs old and if she sees something in her way, she doesn't bother, even if it's a clump of grass, she just walks around
She's lazy and easy-going so one strand of just normal rope would keep her back but the other one is 9yrs old and very much a trickster and she hates humans so it's even better! Na, she just came from a home that people ignored her and chased her because it's fun
So I should have one electrified and the other strand not? I usually just ran the 2 strands and electrified them both.
