New Pasture...and pasture-mates!

We recently decided to rent a 35 acre pasture monthly. We moved Sundance to the new pasture this afternoon. I took several pics, and some of his new pasture-mates. They all seem to get along well, they were galloping and snorting, having a great time! I'll be goin' back in a couple of days to see him, I can't wait. On with the pics...

Me & Sundance...

Some randoms...

His pasture-mates...

They look happy!

The fence scares me though... but I suppose with it being so big you can't really change that it's barbed wire. :-/

Sundance is so handsome, as always.
He looks like he is enjoying all the space and some new friends to share it with.

Well, in my area, Barbed Wire is mostly used. You rarely see a field fenced in anything else. Occasionally, you'll see electric as well as mesh fencing. We have always used Barbed Wire with our horses in the past, and have yet to have a problem. But, you never really know. Anyway, I left the halter on in case of a quick catch, if something went wrong.

it looks a bit loose and with 35 acres he is going to explore so i just don't want him to get it caught on something and hurt himself.

personally i would never put my horse in a barbed wire pasture, especially with horses he dosent really know yet. with 35 acres he could be cought up for a while before anyone sees/ finds him.
