We haven't had rain in about a month. Our electric fences are not working well enough on the horses. I have had three go through it. The light shows it is working and the tester say it is working, but it isn't hurting the horses. Any ideals. My husband said the ground is to dry. I try baby oil on two of them nothing.This horses have been around this same electric fence line for 4 yrs. other the the filly foal.

My electric fence quit working but still was "clicking" like it was functioning. I was watching my mare test it with her nose and no shock! I checked the ground, all the connectors and finally called the company's 800 number. They had me send it back to them and they found that the mother board was malfunctioning. They are going to hopefully send me a new unit soon! Maybe your unit needs to be sent back too.

Water down the ground pole - plenty of water to make the surrounding area wet for quite a depth. It won't cure all, but it will help. Make sure you have the groubd pole buried deeply too - if it's only shallow it will lose power more quickly.

The more grounding rods the better make sure they are DEEP. I use Three house type grounding rods that are copper plated and set them atleast six foot deep and about three foot apart. That way too you will get more surface area to contact with the ground.

Our electric box is about a year old. We when around and cut all the grass stuff around the fence line. We also separate the fence line, we made two separate box. We also water around the ground spot as well. The fences are working for now.Thank you everyone,
