I am soon going to be moving my horse to a friends vacation property. She has a large fenced pasture where my horse will be living. Unfortunately the fence is barbed wire. I have always heard that barbed wire is not a safe option for horses, although the boarding facility he is at right now has some barbed wire and he has never had a problem with it.
Some sections are all barbed wire,
Some have two rows of barbed wire with a wire net underneath it.
The good thing is that the posts of the fence are all really sturdy, so if I need to put in another kind of fencing I could use the posts from the old fence.
I was thinking about just putting up some hot wire around the inside of the fence to keep him off the fence line, using the yellow things pictured below. But I am not sure.
I have never built a horse fence before. What would you guys do in this situation?
