Remember...netting must always be properly electrified!
This is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier's website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
The most common problem is that the lowest 'hot' strand has been caught around one of the metal spikes on the posts and is shorting it out (if this happens, the net is improperly set up, either the lowest hot strand is wrapped around the metal spike or the fence is too loose and needs to be tensioned).
The net must be at least 2" away from anything metal (metal posts, existing fences, spikes on support posts).
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

THis is a great product! My children (ages 15 and 17) are, by themselves, able to move our horses to new grass every few days with this great fence! Also, Premier One has very fast shipping!

I love this fence. I have had a perfect time with it. Couple of caveats:
--If you are methodical and follow a regular way of taking it down, keeping the top of the posts clear of the netting, it's possible to keep it from tangling.
--I've had deer try to get through it twice and the first time they broke one vertical netting part. (This because I haven't left the electric on when the horse is not in the fence.)
In general though, it's made my targeted grazing scheme work with ease. My pony respects the fence even when it is not electrified.
Would definitely recommend.

4 stars: I raise mini horses and this fence is the best!
Since horses can level a pasture quickly, this fence can easily be moved and shaped any way you want to accommodate the horses.
Minus 1 star: It can get tangled up and it takes some real patience to untangle, especially for one person. It needs to be energized ALL THE TIME when the horses are out.
I have mixed feelings about this product. In theory it is great and I have been using it successfully to enclose my 2 horses this winter. If it gets tangled it is very difficult to untangle. So be very careful when you are putting it up not to twist any of the posts around. If you do get it tangled the easiest thing to do is to snap the tops off the posts and untangle the wires off of the posts. It does breakaway if horse gets stuck which is great but it also means that your fence is all on the ground. In short I think it is good product there is just a bit of a learning curve.
