I wouldnt be at all happy with anyone petting my horses - when we first moved here I had to ask a neighbour (politely) to not encourage them to the fence with treats and when explained they understood the reasoning behind it.
Horses can easily nip someone without meaning to be aggressive but you also have no idea what they might be feeding them that could cause choke or colic
Putting up a length of electric tape or rope between the horses and the road fence would help deter most people - I think you're supposed to put a sign up warning that its there but not sure about that

Even if you dont have the fence 'electrified' I am guessing people would stay clear if they THOUGHT it was hot...

Sooo just a little update. :) I finally got around to putting the signs up. Hopefully they will help deter people from loving on Henny. And we apparently do have surveillance cameras, but I've heard they don't work half the time? I dunno. Anyways, pics. :)

(Excuse the poop, I clean up afterwards )

Hope so! We're moving my pony to be with Henny next weekend so as soon as he gets settled in and they get buddy buddy again, we'll be turning them out on the back pasture after we make sure the fence is okay. Excitement is an understatement for how I feel right now!

Wanted to share - as I want to protect my nippy gelding (when around treats) from getting too much treats by barn visitors, but didn't want him to look too dangerous by intimidating "Danger! Horse bites!" signs (experience with barn people in some barns I've been to previously hitting such horses in the head just because they stretch their neck over fence/stall doors...), I made him a sign that says - "Careful! I eat hands!". I hope that does the trick.
