I live on about 7 acres, about 2 are fenced for the horses and we cannot afford any more fencing right now. The rest of the property is teaming over with tall grasses and flowers. We are wondering if there are any safe methods of staking a horse. Of course, it would ONLY be when we are home and both my horses are well trained to be tied. My mare is about 29 yrs old and my gelding about 12. They don't pull when tied. I am most concerned about them getting tangled in the line. Also, we have NO trees on our property with which to tie them to. Any suggestions?
