My horses are truly accident-prone... out of all of them, it's always mine that managed to come up injured (and manage to injure themselves in the stupidest ways)... the other three pretty much never have any injuries on them, regardless of what they do.
As for the place where Jaxxon is in, he's not in that area at night or anything, as I keep him in the yard at night, and I've been working a few hours each day on fixing the loose fences, but I'm not a pro and I'm not my uncles... nor are they willing to help me because in their eyes, nothing is wrong with the crappy, falling down fence. I personally hate barbed wire, but it's the only thing we have and the only type of fencing my 'ignorant' family thinks will keep a cow/horse in (grandma and mum not included).
Most of the time he isn't even in the weedy part, as it's not that big of an area and there isn't any grass he wants to eat over there... he stays in the side/front yard, not in the back by the barn.
I'm working on fixing up the Lot so I can open that and let him eat in there without the other horses/cows scaring him/running him... and I'm also going to extend the side-yard fence a couple feet so he has more grass.
