[RC] re: loose horses - A. Perez

"...I made him get some water on his lips and then he touched
the fence again. Well, I guess that didn't feel so good. ..."

Classic sign of a poor ground.  The more I read about hotwire
enclosures for ridecamps, the less I like the idea, and
grounding is one of the big problems.  Unless it is being set up
in a permanantly biggy area, any electric fnce requires at least
a 4 - 8 FOOT grounding rod to work consistantly.  Having tried
to drive grounding rods more than once, it is not easy to set
them deep enough to provide ground in dry weather.  A nail,
spike ot tent-peg just ain't gonna cut it.  

When I finally get Idiot Boy to load (another story) and we get
to go camping, he'll be tied... probably hobbled, thrown,
hog-tied, bound, blind-folded and gagged, after reading all the
horse escape horror-stories!
