I never have either besides that one time and it was just a random accident she never pawed the fence again. Unfortunately she had to learn the hard way. Though she is my only horse that paws thank goodness.

Positives? Nice short back. Good shoulder angle ( well, a tiny, tiny bit on the upright side) and size of shoulder, neck ties in neither too high nor too low. Croup/hip angle is not too steep and is big enough. She has good bone, straight front legs, short canons, clean hocks (not puffy), pasterns are long enough to give her some softness in her stride (not a jackhammer to ride) but short enough to not be stressed with use. Pretty head with good throatlatch (not too thick).

She isn't light and delicate, but she is certainly feminine and has that look of a horse that will stay sound for years.

Oh thank you tiny I really appreciate that it really helps me learn. I love her to pieces even if I have to deal with her occasional I'm a sassy mare moments. She is a smooth ride and a quick mover I hope now that I'm out of college to do more with her she is too nice to be sitting in the pasture.

Way too nice a horse to be keeping in barbed wire and uncapped T posts. It was the very first thing I noticed. Barbed wire = two things. Either a dead horse or a huge vet bill. Might not happen today or this year, but believe me, those who have at those of us who constantly harp on about how dangerous barbed wire is, wish they had listened. I can't even look at the barbed wire injuries on the net, any more.

Love your nice horse!

You can get solar powered panels now, and rolls of the electrified tape come in 5-6 hundred feet for 60-70 depending on where you buy it.

Everything that happens, be it the good, the bad and the downright miserable define who we are.

I had horses in barbed wire all my life I've never had a problem with it besides the joy accident. Now if I had an accident prone horse or a horse that jumped fences or pushed down fences I'd be a little more cocerned about changing it but I do regular fence checks where I walk the whole line of the fence if anything is ever broken I fix it immediately. Now I've had a friend who had a mare who impaled herself on a t post she was getting teased by some neighbor kids and rear up and fell down on the post. Luckily I have no close neighbors if that happened to me I'd never get over it. So maybe if the time comes when I have a money I can look at other options but right now they are fine I promise. They have a good size clean pasture a barn and a pond they are happy campers. I starting to think electric fence must be an east coast thing cause around where I live all you going to see is barbed wire. I do see electric fences but usually they are keeping a stud inside of it. . I'm jut going to say to each there own.

I like her pasterns and proportionally sized feet - maybe just a little under muscled ?

Overall pretty well balanced. The only things that stood out to me were her short cannons and her hind legs. Something is off in her hind legs, I can't quite pin it down, though.

Honestly, I've never had a problem with barb wire either. I see no problem with it, with MY horses. They respect the fence, so they have no issues with it. We rent 8 acres from a little old lady, and all of it is fenced in barb wire. Have we ever had a bad injury because of it? No. We're not about to refence the entire pasture that we rent because people on the internet told us to. I will say, though, that she is going to be changing the fencing soon.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
