Yeah my husband just kept repeating as he was looking at the pictures with me "why are they doing that near a barbed wire fence.....there doing it near a barbed wire fence......why would they do that next to....." LOL
That's the only place we're allowed to give the horses a bath 'cause the water doesn't run down into the main part of the yard. My grandma hates it when the water runs down in the yard and so we can only give the horses a bath twice a year.
As for the fence, every time the horse got too near it we pulled her away from it... but she kept going right back. By the time we were through, she was calming down. She was the only one who did that. The other two didn't get very near it at all.
Im sorry but that is a sad excuse for bathing your horse next to that....so many things could have happen and even if you did push her out of the way she weighs a lot more then you and could have easily pushed you into it ....there are photos of a horses leg ripped to the bone on another forum due to barbed wire...so jus be careful
