I wish so badly I could redo a lot of my fence and remove every single t post. I cap them too, but every time I walk fence, there are several off. We can try, but if a cap comes off that has to be the post that the horse runs in to!
I am so glad she's dong so well!! Thank you for the update!

You don't have to be crazy to be my friend, but it helps!

Glad to hear she's back home and on the mend. This is the second injury on the forum in the recent weeks involving T Posts - we've got a few around and after hearing how much damage they can cause I want to get them all replaced ASAP if I can

Slowly but surely we're replacing all the old cow fence with good horse fencing. When complete, no more T posts and all the barb wire will be gone. We've replaced most of the barb wire with electrobraid but it's expensive and takes time. It's kind of a Catch 22, if I didn't have vet bills I could finish the fence and if I could finish the fence, I wouldn't have vet bills (at least not fencing caused ones anyhow).

Even if you can't get rid of them all at once, if you cap them you can at least minimize your risk some. This is the first T post injury I've had in almost 10 years. The last one was one of my old broodies, somehow she got the dang thing through her chest and out under her foreleg, through and through and again got lucky and didn't hit anything vital. That was a HUGE ugly mess for sure. She not only didn't hit anything vital, but she had done it some hours before I saw her, so during the night. We didn't think the big skin flap in the front of her chest would reattach and even if it did, we didn't think she'd grow hair back. Well, it did and she did and you couldn't even see where the damage had been. I've had friends who were not so lucky and had horses impale themselves and not survive the accident. So......T posts need to not be around horses. Everyone hates barb wire around horses but I think the T posts are actually a lot worse.

Somebody made the comment that the horses have 2 personalities. One is trying to kill you, homicidal, and the other one is suicidal. I can't help but agree.
