Safety of Electric Fencing.
The 6000v shock of an electric fence sounds as if it should kill you - WRONG, this fence is rendered safe in various ways - by reducing the amperage below lethal levels and by releasing the electricity in short pulses. For a more detailed explanation please follow this link to an electric fence Safety manual.

Versatility of an Electric Fence.
Electric fences have been used around the world to contain EVERY mammal ranging from Elephants down to Snails (I know a snail is not a mammal - it just highlights its versatility). They are very quick to erect, move or dismantle ( a very well known football club uses electric fencing to stop foxes fouling their pitch and it is removed every morning and replaced in the evening.) A temporary electric fence can be used for strip grazing, or keeping horses away from dangerous areas (and each other !). An effective 100 yard fence may be up and running within 30 minutes.
Theft of Fencing Energisers.
The popularity of electric fencing in England and around Europe has led to an increase in thefts of expensive energisers. By the very nature that a battery driven electric fence energiser is left in remote rural areas invariably on the edge of fields means that they are easy targets and liable to be stolen by itinerant thieves. It is very hard to disguise their presence as the fence itself is highly visible so a thief has to simply follow the fence to find the energiser and steal it leaving valuable livestock to be free to roam or removing the necessary protection from predators. Horizont has developed a range of anti-theft energisers and solutions that combat this by incorporating a tracking device enabling you to follow the signal on a simple smartphone app. This has already proven successful on a raid in Germany.
Adding Electricity to a Post and Rail Horse Fence.
How often have you seen a traditional post and rail fence looking terrible, leaning over and wobbly?
These types of fences have been used for years for horses in the United Kingdom look good, last for up to 20 years, but requires a fair bit of maintenance and is very expensive to install. Invariably a 1200 pound horse leans against it to get at that morsel just out of reach. This causes the post to move in the soil and the rail to sag/break or chewing the top rail which reduces its lifespan and increases maintenance costs.
Frequently post-and-rail fencing are combined with a top strand of electrified wire that prevents the weight being transferred to the post - greatly extending the life of the expensive fence. This wire may also be tapped off to create internal paddock sub-divisions improving the grazing. Electric Fencing will keep the fence looking immaculate .
