Should I supplement 3 rail vinyl fence with electric fence?
I'm not a horse person! I am building a horse facility for my daughter. The pasture is eight acres divided into 3 paddocks. There is about 4800 feet of three rail vinyl fence.
We have an "old gentleman" quarter horse who is a lawn ornament, a sweet little "mixed" quarter horse mare, and hope to get some gaited horses with a premium on mild mannered dispositions.
Will I "need" an electric fence in addition to the vinyl fence? If so, will just placing it on the perimeter fence be enough, or should I also place it on all the interior fence as well?
