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!
