If one fence is shorter than the other, that fence will have less resistance.  The amperage is what gives you the shock.  Power (Voltage)/Resistance (Ohms) = Power (Amperage).  The shorter the circuit (wire) the less the resistance, the higher the amperage.  If I add a resistor in line to one fence, that will also lower the amperage.
