I'll try to keep it as short as possible....
I have two horses and a 6 acre pasture. The property is a T shape with the top of the T being the pasture area. There are neighbors on both sides of me so the top of the T runs behind each neighbor's property. (make sense?)
The fence behind one neighbor is barbed wire and runs about halfway around the entire 6 acre pasture. We are not certain who owns the fence but will be checking with the county auditor soon. The neighbor is NOT a nice or reasonable person so getting permission to replace the fence that borders his and my area isn't a valid possibility.
I do NOT want to have barbed wire fencing for my horses and would prefer to install a poly electric fence around the entire pasture.
If it is determined the fence does not belong to us, and wanting the pasture to be as safe as possible for my horses, I'm not sure what to do about the fence.
I could install the poly electric on my side of the property line but how much room should I give between the poly and the barbed wire? I'm not keen on having to mow between two fences. Does anyone have a better idea? I'm truly baffled at this point.
