I haven't read all the replies but my colt would jump over the fence to come to me when I first put him to pasture. And I mean he would come right to the front door and look in and scream for me. I had to shock him, and shock him good with the fence. I wet the ground where we were standing and just stood on the other side, when he pushed his chest against to come see me I threw my arms up and started yelling like a madman. This coupled with the intense shock brought respect for the fence. Although sometimes he will lip the thing to test it still has power.
ETA: we have Hotwire as well, but only one strand chest high.
