    I was at the shop today doing the trimming around the building and about 15 feet away from the building there is an electric fence. Well, picture this, "I was dripping wet from sweat and I backed into the fence." I can still feel it 2 hours later.

    OUCH ! ! ! ! !
    The good part is, if you were sweaty enough, no one could tell you unleashed your bladder without the benefit of a toilet.
    Lucky you didn't get burned.
     
  5. I had a helper once who said electric fences didn't bother him.
    He touched one a customer had for Horses.
    I guess he didn't know they came in different voltages.
    It knocked him down!
    Then he couldn't move his arm for a while.

    Well here's a good one.Had a dog and she was always runnin' off . Got an electric fence and that kept her in the yard. Well she went into heat and every dog in the area learned about electric fences. One bold dog decided he was gonna mark the area as his "turf". As I watched, he lifted his leg and released a strem, right on the wire ! He yelped and yelped and yelped as he ran off into the distance.........never saw that dog again.

    I also work at a horse farm and must see a horse a day get brave and touch some of that hot wire, although its pretty funny to see a 1000 lb animal fart and jump at the same. So Tideman I sure can understand how that felt!
