No, but I boarded at a place that had BARBED WIRE PASTURES. The stalls are pipe corral stalls.


A lot of people cannot even imagine barbed wire pastures but they are common out here and they are the reason trying to adopt a horse is impossible - none of the rescues will adopt out to barns with barbed wire pastures.

My horses are in barbed wire as are most horse here in the deep south. I only know of a couple of places that don't have barbed wire, and they are private barns not boarder barns.

My boarder/friend's horse was adopted...so some rescues DO ALLOW barbed wire. They approved the facility based on pictures and inspected in person after the mare moved in.

Anxiety is now believed to be a major contributor to 'tying up'
Your mare also cribs which is another strong indicator of anxiety. The cribbing is a sort of stress reliever and preventing them from cribbing can be a negative

Just winging it is not a plan

I agree, and a vet should know the difference.

I don't break horses, I FIX them!
