    Chico's Started Testing the Fence!

    So I was woke up bright & early this morning by one of our neighbors at the door asking if I was missing a little black Arabian with one white sock!
    Or course it was Chico but luckily the people that found her have horses of their own so they led her back for me.
    Bella was still in the pen & didnt seem very concerned that her pasture buddy was missing (which is odd because she's usually throwing a fit when she'd left alone).
    So I walked the fence & found the weak spot where the middle wire had been busted & fixed it all up.
    However, ever since I turned Chico back out she's been running around all day, searching the fence for weak spots & even putting her head through to try & push out!
    She's been in the pasture for 2 1/2 years & has never gotten out or even tried, but now that she has it seems she's determined to do it again.

    Currently, we have 3 strands of straight wire running accross the back half & rails on the front half of the pasture & in the summer we have the electric wire hooked up to keep them from putting their heads through. THe wire doesn't work in the winter however, so what can I do to keep her from getting out again without confining her to the tiny corral until summer when the ground unthaws?
