I think I'm going to try it...I just need to figure out how to contact her since she appears to rarely be home.

I've never heard of a horse jumping an electric fence. They are not terribly expensive. They need to be kept electrified, or at some point the horse will realize that the "danger" is gone.

Cielo- if the neighbor doesn't want to board her for me and I can't think of anything else, I'm going to bite the bullet and buy some electric fencing. I'm just not sure how exactly to rig it up considering the type of fencing it would be attached to and how far away from any electrical source it would be (its at the FAR end of the pasture, go figure) but if that's what I have to do, I'll do it. I'm just sort of in a sticky situation right now where its really not a good idea for me to shell out $200-300 right now if I don't have to, without even knowing if it will work or not.

Are you sure she is jumping? Given her small size and everything else I was surprized she was able to. (Subbed on other Kenzie threads). Maybe she rolled under or unlatched a gate?

Just a thought we had a horse who we thought was jumping but he was actualy goin under lol.

It sure doesn't seem like she could, does it Roux? She's BARELY 14hh at the wither, runty, and rather uncoordinated most of the time...but she is definitely jumping. The first time she did it, no one saw her (it was either the middle of the night or early morning when she did it) so we thought it might have been that she squeezed through a break or hole in the fence, but we looked the fence over and it is actually in really good repair and doesn't have a single gap even at the bottom. It is this type of fence (I think it is a form of no-climb fencing too?) click and it meets the other corners fully. The second time, there was no doubt she is jumping because she had just been let out of the stall and was being watched by a member of Family P. She acted content to hang out by that fence for a few minutes, then walked away, spun around, and leapt over it like it was nothing. We're all seriously impressed but also seriously annoyed xD

Ugh, this sounds like a mess with no easy fix. Let us know what the neighbor says!

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I will! I got her contact information but she works during the day and I'm about to head to my college classes, but I'll give her a call when I get home (5 ish) and hope that she's home!

I kid you not Chickenoverloard, if you can get her to you- you can have her. I absolutely adore her but I just can not afford a horse in my present financial state. But alas, you're probably kidding ;)

I called the lady today and while she was super sweet, she is unable to keep Kenzie at her place for me because she locks her horse in and has crazy work hours that mean I'd have no access to Kenzie most of the time, and she really just can't take on the liability of having someone else's horse on her property right now. Disappointing, but understandable.

Sooo I'm back to square one. I'm going to ask about making the fence taller tomorrow when I go out, but until then Kenzie is being stalled still.
