We are putting up some electric fencing using 3 strands of polytape and t-posts for our animals. We are running the fencing along three sides of the pasture - the fourth side is already solidly fenced and doesn't need electric going across it (we will call this the back side). We have two chargers, so I was going to put the gate in the middle of the front side, and run two sections of polytape going out from the gate to the front corners, and then straight back to the back side (to form a large square) My question is does the electric fence need to be a closed loop, or can I do what I'm describing. It would mean having two two "L" shaped electrified lines, each running from their own charger. My husband says an electric fence needs to be run on a continuous loop, but I'm hoping that he's wrong :happy2: So to recap - just the front and sides are electric, and they stop when they meet the back fence. I hope I explained that ok.
