I think the point of discussion is a matter of terminology. Ian Stewart-Koster www.aussieheavyhorses.com writes the following:

"The Clydesdale stands 'close behind' and that is a breed feature which is notably different to the fault "cow hocked". A cow hocked horse has hocks close-almost touching, and hooves far apart, and cannon bones that are angled from the hock to the hoof.
The 'close behind' attribute of the Clydesdale is such that the hocks are close, but so are the hind hooves, and the cannon bones are vertical and parallel and perpendicular to the ground."

No, its a temporary fencing we put up inside the pasture to rotate them throughout the summer. We will move them every three days thus giving the other areas time to grow and so on.

Oh, cause I was told you could use it as the whole fence. Why couldn't you use it as a whole fence?

I have seen people use it for their fencing using t post and the insulators that go on the post for the fencing to run through.

They have insulators that will fit on just about any type posting you want to use. They even sell that plastic kind in the first pic. Not my first choice. And your welcome! Now get on it and get that horse! Oh but it may be cheaper to use wire on the bottom and one or two strips of tape at the top, not sure tho.
