We can't take the fence down, its the fence the forest serves put up, and is shared. My issue is cattle. There are a ton of cattle in the area and my grandmother would like to get a cow or two to slaughter and we don't need them setting my mare free. She will find the nearest stud within 20 miles -_-' she is such a hussy XD.
Also for the wire could I put plastic ribbon on it to make it more noticeable for airhead horses?
