My fence is slightly different in that it has 2 logs nailed on one side and the middle log is nailed on the opposite side. So you can bend under one side and walk through to the other. That's how it lets the deer through. It's supposedly too small for a cow to get through but I was just unsure about my horses. I don't want to find out the hard way kwim.

is exactly what we have.
Basically we call it deer fencing. It's to mark land and keep humans on track without disturbing the wildlife.

I wouldnt worry abotu that with my horses. My horsese would repect that and not go through it. It depends on the horse. If you have horses that like to jump and push fences that you may have problems.

That fence is common in my area because the ground is rocky and you don't have to dig post holes making it easier to put up. Some horses respect it, some knock it over & some jump it. I would run a hot-wire on the top in case, nothing worse than having a loose horse.

Cool looking fence. I think mine would be fine as long as they had plenty of grass to graze on their side of the fence. If it was grazed down, I've no doubt they'd jump it. Agree with wares, a strand of good hot wire would be a good idea.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Hahah here we have the mesh fence to keep the deer out as well. I can probably say that my pony would try and find a way out through that fence - but only if there was better food on the other side. He got stuck under the fence in his paddock at the old barn, tried to shimmy out.
