Separating horses and cows
Let me start by saying that I am new to horses and everything they are about. I grew up on a farm and we had cows and chickens and a few pigs but never horses so when my wife said she wanted horses I said sure because I always wanted one but while I was a kid the answer was always no. I have talked with my grandma and she agreed to let me have the small barn on our family land. It needs a little work but is still in good shape. It has two stalls a nice sized storage room for feed and tack and another area off to the side I could use for grooming. The only thing is that there are still cows on the property. About 15 head. Growing up with cows my first instict was to just throw up some barbed wire but I saw a guy on another forum get reamed for mentioning it so I know that is a huge no no. So I was thinking about T posts and horse wire from lowes and wooden posts between and at the corners but my concern is that the cows will destroy my fence. I have time to work on my fence because I'm not getting our horses until January. All the stuff I have read has me scared to death of fences! My barn has a fence around it that I have to redo also but it will be inside my larger fence. Any help you guys can give will be greatly appreciated!
