I would suggest that when you get the electric fence put up, put some flagging on it for him to see it, get on a horse and move him slowly into the fence. It is better to teach them that way and not just let him find out on his own. sometimes when the cows hit an electric fence they will lurch forward and tear down the fence by mistake....if that happens you will see and make sure you repair it before he goes on through it.....that one or two jolts will make him remember what that fence does and why the flags are marking it he will stay away from it.....
