There are two ways to get the "electrical" message through to your livestock....either through a hot wire routed around the perimeter of your area in the hopes that the critter will be "well" grounded through their hooves and be subjected to the zapping commands of your charger passing through their bodies out their feet and back to the charger throught the ground and your ground system at the charger. Or....you can run a hot wire and a ground wire(isolated and separated from one another)around the perimeter in hopes that the animal will ultimately touch both simultaneously once again providing the path for the current to flow from the hot wire throught the beast to the ground wire and back to the charger. In either event some other things to think about....if your trying to corral goats, mohair is an excellent insolator and you'll probably need to run multiple hot and ground wires to improve the chances of the goat hitting the wires on areas of their bodies that will conduct the electricity....such as the nose, ears, and lower parts of the legs. As a safety measure we always tie the ground side of the fence charger to the building electrical ground system be it an electrical system ground, metallic water pipe, or telephone system ground. In a good installation all of these will ultimately be bonded together and I would add that if you plan to install your own ground field that it should also be bonded to these other systems to avoid potential differences in the grounds.
