They Went That Way!
A few nights ago while doing evening chores I switched the fence back on in the goats area and my fence voltage dropped to almost zero. I put on my headlight and trekked out into the cold and dark. I started checking to see which wire the short was located on. I have a fault finder, it will show the amount of current in amps and the direction of flow. With it you can trace down the short on the fence. Well, that is in most cases, but this night when I used the fault finder it showed current in BOTH directions. This was not in just one spot, but over a very large area of the fence. Now it is dark, cold and I am alone. There are three MILES of wire out there over two acres. So back to the basics, start looking in the usual places. With God's Grace I found it a half hour later. A wire was touching in the bucks area.
