According to the amount of exposure to the sun during the day, Border Line™ Glow will be radiant for 8 to 12 hours in the dark. Initially, after exposure, the glowing is quite noticeable but this fades quite quickly. After several hours there is a slight glow that is hardly noticeable with the naked eye but stands out to an animal with eyes already adjusted to the darkness around. 

This horse sighter wire is specially designed for horses with night blindness. The fence emits a subtle glow that keeps horses from running into it in the dark or pulling up when spooked.  

Border Line™ Glow Horse Sighter Wire is the most expensive product in the Border Line range.
