Urgent! Help with Fence Problems

I woke up this morning to find my colt in the neighbor's field. I found the fence had been covered with snow in spots, because it was so high. So I dug it out some, raised the fence, and we switched the battery for the charger. Now the charger's not clicking at all.
Also I don't know what to do about the snow. It's getting so high he can practically step over the fence, and I don't have the energy to shovel all around the fence...that seems ridiculous. But I'm worried it's the only option. What do you guys (at least those of you who live in snowy places) do when the snow gets like that?

Oh my gosh, that's a lot of snow. I remember when we used to live in Michigan and my dad had cattle. He put up snow fence that would cause the snow to drift up in areas away from the fence line. I don't know if they even still make it. It was slates of wood wired in place. Geesh that's been a LONG time ago so they may have something new now. Tough to do something now that the snow is flying and the ground is frozen. If you can you might want to put in some taller fence posts.

There's really no way at this point without hours of work to put in a taller fence posts all around which I can't do...
I also heard that horses won't get popped with snow on the ground, cause they aren't totally grounded. Anyone know if this is true?

Luckily, we finally have the shelter up, and so we stuck him in there and put up a round pen panel across the front, so he's set for now, I just don't want to keep him in there all the time.
