It's 5ft no-climb wire, but he's done this so much he's streched out the top foot or so so it's loose - yes it does move, but it didn't used too, lol. So to "fix" him, we've added a strand of high tensile electric at the top. Since he leans on the fence to get his height right before jumping it, he now gets a zing if he leans and it backs him off. It'll work for a while till he finds some other way out, the little booger! I think he does it just to prove he still can...

Oh -- that reminds me of a young stud I had here once. He did a stunt like that over an electric and got his wazoo zapped! My son saw it and laughed himself silly!

Awhhh cunning old guy! Thats so cute really though!

I'm keeping this video away from my Honey... what's up with the chestnut mares being little fence houdinis?! My old mare April used to climb/crawl/leap anything.... and I have to use two lines of tape on anything these days with Honey... or else she drops to the ground and commando crawls underneath... and then does her "Uh ohhh" face when she's caught... cheeky 'baby' horse (she's 4 but sometimes acts younger lol)

You know they know better. Notice that as soon as he lands on the outside of the fence, he looks around to see if he's been caught, lol. And if he knows I'm around, there's no way he's going over until I'm gone. I had to hide behind a water trough to get this vid.

Haha you're hiding behind a bucket aren't you! That's completely something I would do :).

Tricky, tricky boy ;)
