Getting a gelding right now to keep with a stud in barb wire fencing is a disaster waiting to happen. I am not trying to be rude or hurtful. Only trying to help.

Please people lets just leave it at that.
I only have 1 horse and im NOT getting out of horses.

And for the LAST time only post if its about his CONFORMATION!!!

Barb wire is all fine and dandy until you get a horse caught in it. When there are options that are safer for horses and are about the same cost I don't understand why anyone uses barb wire...

Just because something was used in the past it is not an excuse to not do the best you can by your horses. IMPO neither of you are doing the best you can by any of the horses... not with shoddy fencing, dangerous things in the pasture, lack of vet care and farrier care. All of those things are the very least that needs to be done... if you can't provide a safe, healthy environment for your horses, you really need to sit back and rethink the situation.

I bet we take better care of our horse alot better than some people on her.
And we both know that barb wire can hurt a horse badly.

Its what WE chose to use when we made the fence...it was OUR decision.
We do have a safe healthy place for our horses also.

And once again PLEASEEEEEEE don't post unless its about the gelding.

pushing aside all of the other reasons not to get this gelding, I would not buy him.

He appears to be calf kneed, butt high, and long backed just in these photos. I also see a collar on him, which means that he has atleast some history of wind sucking or cribbing- both nasty habits that are hard to correct.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I noticed the cribbing thing also.

Barbed wire is not safe what so ever. Why would you guys choose that? You should NOT keep a horse in it. It can kill a horse.
You also need to have a horse's feet taken care of. If not cared for it can cause serious injury which keads to a vet call.
Don't get another horse, even if you are rehoming the current horse. If you can't afford to get new fencing don't get another horse.
