I am trying to find the answer online, but can't find much specific. If one has board/plank and hot wire (horse/hot-cote wire) fencing for the perimeter of their property, what is the maximum height from ground to bottom run of fencing to contain a mini? It is obvious we are going to have to modify the existing fence if we do go ahead with a mini, but I need to know specifics as to what modifications to make on the wire/plank placement.
Dont go more then an inch or two as you want to keep predators out as much as you want to keep minis in :)
well, mini's can't be taller than 34 inches or they will be classified as a Shetland. I have a shetlandx mini. he looks like a shetland but is exatcly 34 inches tall. I have barbed wire fencing, but the strands are probably 6 inches apart.
I can't wait to see pics of your mini and of Aero meeting him/her ♥
oh ok they are sum cute minnies that yous have got!!!!
Our fence is a 3 rail wood fence, the boards are 8 feet. The first board is six inches off the ground, the second is 18" from the ground and the third is 30" from the ground (Making our fence a total of 36" tall as the boards are six inches wide) Around the top we put up one strand of hot wire to keep big horse noses from reaching in... I have minis from 30" to 38" tall and every one stays in safe & sound. It looks like this.....
