So, after quiet a few years out of the horse world (about 10 years sadly), I am finally at a point in my life that I'm wanting to share my life with a horse of my own. I live on about 3 acres of land and am planning on building a barn in early spring of 2014. I will also need to put up fencing as well which leads me to my question.
What type of fencing would be best used? I hear horror stories on almost every type of fencing I look into. I plan on fencing off about 2 1/2 acres, would rather not use wood or "plastic" fencing. I would like to have 4 "strings" high and about 60 inches off the ground to discourage reaching over. Horses will be either Mares or Geldings, No Stallions to deal with at all.
As far as budget goes, I don't really have one at this point and time.
I hope I have covered everything. If you need any further information please feel free to ask.
Thank You for your time!
