This was my first time building an electric fence for a horse pasture and Zareba's products are excellent. They are well engineered and they have thought through every detail. Just follow their guides and you won't go wrong. I will add that you don't have to sacrifice aesthetics for effectiveness. I originally ordered yellow insulators but reordered black ones to help it blend in with the existing barbed wire fence that I needed to enhance with electricity. Horses aren't stupid and don't need a bright color to figure out to avoid the wire. Hope all this helps.Date published: 2015-11-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Robyn from Convenient and effective We like the polyrope for our grazing horses... because they respect it. It is very visible, that even a young filly sees and understands not to touch it. We use it with stakes which a blacksmith has made, so we can change its position very easily.Date published: 2015-12-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Nonickname from Great service My order was promptly processed, shipping information was quickly provided, and items were received before the estimated delivery dateDate published: 2015-11-02

POLY WIRE / POLY ROPE
Features and Benefits
- More visible than traditional wire
- Convenient to install, repair and rewind
- Will not rust
- Temporary fencing
- Rotational grazing
- Controlled grazing
Poly wire is a good fence choice since it is more visible than traditional metal wire, lightweight and installs easily. Poly wire is easily tightened, spliced, repaired and rewound. In addition, it can be re-used again and again.
Use a poly wire tightener to maintain wire tension as needed.
This convenient wire can be used for temporary grazing, strip or rotational grazing and pet control. Poly wire should not be used with continuous output chargers
Poly rope is another excellent high visibility choice for your fence line. It is stronger than poly wire, with stainless steel strands woven through the rope.
The steel strands ensure maximum electrical energy is carried through the fence line at all times. Use a splicer to maintain a good connection. Most poly ropes are about 1/4 inch in diameter.
Note: For best results, use a low impedance fence charger to energize poly wire and poly rope fences. Poly rope should not be used with continuous output chargers.
The height and spacing of the wires will vary with the animal you are containing. Position one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height; this will cause it to hit the fence with its nose, making it back up.
Use poly tape for horse fencing or in rotational grazing since the animals can easily see this highly visible electric fence wire. Splice poly tape with splicer buckles specially designed for easy splicing and repairing of poly tape.
Poly wire is lightweight, so it is very easy to handle. You can rewind it very easily, move it and re-use it. Splice poly wire by tying a good, tight knot to maintain connections. Use a poly wire line tightener on each line and each side of the fence to maintain wire tension.
FENCE CHARGERS FOR WIRE
Use a low impedance fence charger with poly wire and poly tape products.
PERMANENT PERIMETER FENCING
For a permanent perimeter fence, you may want to use high tensile or steel wire as your fence wire.More Expert Tips About Fence Wire»
Fence Wire FAQs
Q: Why is poly tape better for use with horses than regular wire?
A: It's a matter of visibility. Horses can see the tape more readily than wire. Remember, electric fencing is a psychological barrier: after a horse has met up with a poly tape electric fence and has felt the shock, when it sees the poly tape again, it will remember the shock and stay away from the fence.
Q: Why should I place one wire at the animal's shoulder?
A: Positioning one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height will cause the animal to hit the fence with its nose, making the animal back up. See illustration below.
Q: Won't poly tape succumb to wear and tear?
A: Poly tape is designed to withstand wear and tear. The open-weave design allows wind to pass through it, reducing wear and increasing longevity of the fence. However. logically poly tape will not last as long as steel wire.
Q: What kind of fence wire do I need?
A: Generally, use the most highly visible fence wire you can afford -- for the simple reason that animals can't avoid a fence they don't see. For horses, many owners prefer polytape in conjunction with steel wire. For other animals, yellow and black poly wire may do. And high tensile systems require high tensile steel wire.
