    BTW, Mike Holt has free videos covering this on his website under grounding and bonding.

    If their water source is at a different potential then what they are standing on. If just the fences/gates are all that is at different potential they will stay away from them.

    I would think a conductive matt would be better since you have no concrete electrode below them.. also look into the service neutral size and length before bonding egc to any metal

    I have seen that with water tanks in the field, not enough to trip GFI but enough they would feel it when they went to drink. If water level in tank did not go down we knew we had a bad heater.

    I saw a large grounding grid for a fence charger open in the middle one time. You should of seen the horses when the charger pulsed and they were inbetween the open area. The step potential must of been big. they would jump straight up.
    A cowboy may get thrown , but they always get up and walk forward.
