Indeed. Another common poor choice, IMHO, that I see a lot is folks introducing a horse to a new herd/pasture at feeding time (typically late in the afternoon/early evening). Not only can feed bring out the aggressiveness in horses, but you have very little time to keep an eye on everything before night....Ive seen more horses go through/get snagged in fences that first night with serious leg injuries...
