    There is a very good reason, why Animal Planet, Fugly and RFDTV have all made many references to, or produced shows on the horrors of barbed wire fencing, but not on other types of fencing, gopher holes etc. It is because of the horrific injuries caused. Several years ago, I heard or read somewhere, that roughly 400 horses are put down yearly, due to barbed wire injuries. Hundreds of others no doubt, cost their owners dearly in vet bills, while they heal.

    Just a few months ago on another forum, a lady lost her mare and foal, when they ran through a barbed wire fence, when being chased by a loose dog which got into the pasture. Devastating. Keeping ANY stallion within barbed wire fencing, should be illegal. Stallions are notorious for jumping fencing to visit mares or just go looking.

    I'll bet that all those who have lost a horse or have had to deal with a horribly injured horse because of barbed wire, also said before the incident, "Oh we've had barbed wire for years and never had a problem."

    A vet would tell you, likely in a few minutes, what the problem is.
