I have most always "lined" my fences with a strand or two of electric wire no matter what I was fencing in. The reaction I have gotten from horses, dogs, chickens and cats have always been loud and run. Today I put up some electric wire around the goat paddock and when they touched it they didn't seem to upset about it? I know it was working. The Lamancha eyes it but still sneaks up on it and trys. So are goats not as sensitize as other animals? Thanks JoAnn.
