First of all, make SURE the power cord running to the electric fence charger is OFF!
Believe me, I tried this once while it was plugged in and the results were painful.
Next, make sure there is at least one horse paying attention to what you are doing. If not, what’s the point. There’s lots of other stuff to do!After you’re sure the electric fence is off, and you’ve got at least one horse paying attention to what you’re doing, then it’s time to get started.
First, jump up on the fence and attack it. Bring it down as far as you can.Then, just do whatever you gotta do to keep it low so somebody can step over it. Remember, the horse is supposed to be paying close attention to what you’re doing. Don’t let any humans see you do this though or they’ll probably run over and plug the fence in.
That will hurt.Now, be careful not to get yourself too wrapped up in the fence in case something goes wrong and you have to get outta there fast. For safety reasons it’s probably best to do this if there is only one horse behind the fence.
In this last pose I about had it down when BOOM! The next door neighbor shot his shotgun and scared the herd of horses into a mad gallop and I jumped so high I pulled the whole thing down. But, I ran really fast and I don’t think anybody saw who did it.
I think they blamed the horse.
