we will we will SHOCK YOU!

the electric wire at my barn is basically invisable! All the kids get shocked and we know this can't continue,but the cost of new installed electric wire is just not in the mix right now. what is an alternate option instead of SHOCK SHOCK SHOCK!

Have you ever tried the electric tape? Its usually white, and its wide. Its very visible so the kids wouldn't accidentally touch it.


Heres a good brand, but there are many manufacturers of this tape-like electric fence.

we use what firelight was talking about at my barn. it is extemely easy to instal (me and one other person put up 2 acreas of fence in around 30 mins) and if something happens it is really easy to fix. i totally recomend it, and it look really nice.
