What sort of fencing should be used when enclosing an area for your horse? I have done a little research on the Internet and have found that barbed wire can be a little dangerous to horses. What sort of fencing would you recommend?
I read that horses could become entangled in the barbed wire or could also press against it due to the fact that it is small and thin (which would be difficult for a horse to see). To counter this, could you construct a three-row barbed wire fence with a single strand of electric wire at the top positioned inward by about six inches (meaning the horse would reach the electric wire before the barbed wire)?
Or, could you use electric wire for the entire fence? When I say this, I mean a three-row electric wire fence.
Any insight is appreciated!
