Question on Electric Corral
Okay. I have come to the conclusion that not everywhere that's advertised as horse campgrounds are super horse friendly in that a lot only offer a hi-line or a hitching post/tie rack. Those are okay-ish, but since we go for three and four days, it seems kinda crappy to me that my horses have to stand tied the entire time unless we're riding them. We HAVE been known to let them off the hi-lines, one at a time only, and let them have a good roll and meander around camp nibbling and mowing the lawn, but that's only when it's just us. And, more than one horse off the line at a time = horses haring off on their own since they're in a 'group'.
I'd like to invest in an electric corral, the type with step-in posts (the white plastic/fiberglass, 48" types, the 2" electric ribbon, and an energizer.
Here's where I get confused.
It's the energizer. Hubs says just take the solar one off the fence out back (The one he HAR HAR popped me with last weekend) and use it to save the big expense, but will that even work? Do I need one that big? It's almost the size of a jump box (Battery charger).
How many step-in posts do I need/should have? Spaced how far apart when I set up?
