Where/how to place ground wire below hot wire for escape artist?
Something's gotta give, because The Blue Eyed Blonde(tm) is going to end up getting herself shot by my very pissed off neighbor. And he'd be well within his rights! :eek:
I've posted about her before... It's going to come down to staking her out or hobbles for her to get any grass if I can't get something to work.
My hay guy, a cow farmer, suggested to run a second ground wire where she will hit both the ground wire and the hot wire when she tries to duck through the fence.
I'm picturing this as being the middle two strands since she puts her head through then pushes under the top strand, THROUGH the middle strand, and either steps over or just pushes through teh bottom strand...
I have FIVE copper ground rods, all sunk about 2'6" deep. Unfortunately, that's as deep as you can get, since I'm on top of granite ledge.
The other pasture has one rod, down almost entirely (5') but the five rod paddock seems to have been the hottest in the past. Still, Hay Guy thinks that the ground is dry enough that she's just not gettting enough of a zap...
How far apart should the two wires be, and should they be the middle??
