  • Electric Fence and Lead #3

    0 Comments

    When we moved my horses to our 5.1 acres, I wanted white board fencing, of course, until I saw the price tag! Electric fence got my attention really fast for cost, not to mention we fenced more than 1,100 feet in a matter of hours and divided it twice. We keep spare posts, electric wire […]
