yesterday, while checking pasture fence, I had a very high learning curve.
I learned that you should never just assume that you unplugged the fencer last fall. While pulling the wire up out of a swampy area, I thought I felt a tickle, but figured it was my nerves, cause I always think I am getting a shock when working with elect wire... the last tug and the wire popped out of the swampy water and cat tails, and POW!!!! I got a rude awakening!
then after a few minutes of "what the hell" I decided that the fencer, a mile away, through some tough terrain was a dang good fencer, and I just needed to tie off the loose end of the wire....so I thought, " I can do that with out getting buzzed" well I could. except that my rubber coated pliers had one itty bitty hole and it arced right through and hit me again!


always start at the fencer, and unplug it. I won't forget, that shock therapy is a magical learning device!

Kind of like a shock collar on a dog that chases chickens. :wink: :)

I've heard that it's good therapy for arthritis. :D

You're never too old to learn, but some folks just run out of time . . . :?

I was once told that a good shocker will make you wet your pants when you touch it :lol:
