Same! The place our new buck came from had mothing but 3 wires of electric and I was like....but how??? Would never in my life put MY goats in just hot wire they would be out in 10 minutes no matter how hot it was.Lol, that's kinda funny.
I have 4ft field fencing inside the property line, then various cross fencing. Others use a single or double hot wire by the road and I'm always in awe that they're able to get away with so little! Definitely cheap to be able to use hot wire vs any other fencing. I would never trust it, though, got too many pain in the butt animals screwing around, making me second guess all my life choices.
DH asked me yesterday if I thought it would be alright to put up some hot wire pasture area for our older calves, im dubious but said we could try it if we put up the front fence first....aka the fence between our land and the road that will be page wire and privacy fence. He said cows stay in fences better...I dunno.
