Re: [RC] Electric netting? - Quentin & Libby Llop

I use and have used this for 30 years for my sheep. Occasionally I have horses in it too, but I try not to. If a hoof went through the horse would continue to be shocked as it pulled up the whole fence, complete with 4" metal stakes. This kind of wire (plastic with small metal filaments) cuts like a surgical saw. I have lost lambs in this fence. They get a leg or neck through and become twisted and tangled in it very easily. It is important to keep it taut and highly electrified at all times. If I was pasturing a horse with it I would not want to make an area smaller that 4 rolls. 165' x 165' Libby

BTW, it did just occur to me that the holes in the netting might be large enough to get a hoof through. I'd have to check... may not a good idea if so. Any other thoughts?

I was checking prices for .5" electric tape when I noticed Electric
Netting for the first time.  I've only ever seen one rider use this in
camp, but she seemed happy.  Has anyone used it, and can you give me
your feedback please?  Link below.  (If the link breaks, just
copy/paste the whole thing into your browser.)
