Depends on what type you use. If you use the twine electric, the thin stuff the width of baler twine, yes, that is very easy to fix when broken, I just tie it, and although it may not be the most aesthetically pleasing, it doesn't look to bad. I use it in all but one of my pastures. It breaks more easily, but in my opinion is good, as I would rather have my horse get tangled up in it and break, rather than having her stay in there.. If you use the thicker rope stuff, it rarely breaks, meaning if the horse got tangled in it, it wouldn't break to easy. It is pretty hard to tie as it is pretty thick, but I believe they sell things that you can use to put them back together. One of my pastures has this.
The twine holds well when it is tied up, never tried those metal things that you use for the rope though.
