DON'T GET HIGH TENSILE. It is okay if you use it around a very very large pasture , but like someone else says if the horses kick it or run into it because they can't see it its awful. The place I boarded had it when we redid the entire farm it was fine in the summer but when it got rainy and slippery in the winter we had 4 or 5 horses within a month get their legs sliced bad enough that they are just now getting fully healed. One had to be sent off to NC State because it got down to the bone. They are all okay now but it could have been so much worse. The hoses can't see it and it tends to coil.
