Will keep a horny stallion in check. The key is the STRONG fence charger (I think mine is 15 joules) and the 5 inch extenders that will keep them AWAY from the wire fencing.

A horse can get a hoof and leg throught the 4 ". I had one horse that did this and it looked like someone skinned his leg, He was kicking. I cleaned it , pulled the skin down , put some salve on it and betadine, wrapped the heck out of it. He healed. Only had to cut one small peice of dead skin off. Another horse got her shoes caught, and the goats would push out the bottom and crawl under it. Pygmy goats tend to jump more in my experience with them, and my Nubian does would go under. The sheep stay in the 4" . I have hot wire around the top of the fence, I did have 3 strands of hot wire up, but it was always shorting .

I would not recommend the wire fencing! I'm sorry I have just had too manny bad experiences with wire fencing. My cousin and I were out riding and some fool left wire fencing on the ground. We were cantering and the horses shoe caught on the wire and ripped it right off! (Sorry don't mean to be graphic) So at first the wire stuck with the shoe and scared the daylights out of her and she decided to bolt and buck at the same time and thats when her shoe flung off. There was also one day when our goat got caught in the wire because he was rubbing on it and tore about half his skin off! O.O I can't say too much about fencing but I just don't want anybody else to go through the same problems.
