Horse fencing: Do it right and skip the 1,348-acre brush fire
April 23, 2013
According to The Coloradoan, a retired nuclear physicist's electric fence was connected to a 100-foot extension cord that was plugged into a power strip plugged into another extension cord plugged into an electrical outlet. The contraption sparked a brush fire that consumed 1,348 acres of Colorado's Lory State Park.
Avoid endearing yourself to the neighbors and thousands of other park users -- get your electric fencing right the first time. It's not rocket (or nuclear) science.
