Currently my two AQH geldings are sharing a pasture with my niece's mare. For weeks now they've been considered Houdini's in the Making. I've found them all over the place - in the driveway, in my neighbor's fields. It's pretty scary, waking up and finding them who knows where. I'm concerned that one day they'll wander out to the road or get seriously hurt jumping the barbed wire my neighbors have recently put up. I've tried several types of fencing, from electric to wooden railing, yet nothing seems to work. Here are my two questions.
1) Will my niece's mare develop bad habits because of these two escape artists?
2) What's a good, sturdy type of fencing?
I've found my fences torn down, cribbed at, and somehow unlocked. HELP!
