Fence wire installed backwards
A 3 acre pasture was recently re-fenced with non-climb. While going over all the connections and wraps, I discovered that at some point the installers had reversed the wire when they switched to a new roll, and for the bulk of the fence the smooth side is on the outside. The barbs from the knots are ripping my leather gloves and there's nothing I can do to take the sharp edges off.
I went to the fence website and found where it specifically says to put the smooth side to the horses. I called the company to ask if the fence rolls are marked, and they said "any certified installer knows to put the smooth side in -- otherwise it is not safe for horses".
There are no trees in this pasture and the horses regularly use the fence to scratch their shoulders and foreheads.
To the real question: how safe would anyone here feel about their horses being turned out in this?
