Then why did they approve me when I CAREFULLY explained what I had done? I don't get it. I'm not trying to cut any corners. I really thought it was fine. The woman with my horse seems cool, nice, and know what shes talking about, but it's MY horse.

No, no pasture buddy. I'm expecting some screaming for the next few days. They also recommended not having him around other horses, just sit out there with him.

GuitarChamp, you have the resources to see what the BLM requires for adoption. I was able to find fencing requirements with a 15 second Google search. The link for every adoption requirement is available off the main BLM site.
1x1s are not adequate, and the BLM has regulations in place to protect the horses that they adopt out. They say right on the site that the facility will be inspected either prior to or shortly after adoption, and they reserve the rights to the horse- and they may inspect the facility at any time- until the title is issued. If they find that you haven't followed regulations, they reserve the right to remove the horse.
I agree with Vidaloco, I would ask the woman to come and inspect your property again prior to dropping the horse off, so you don't owe her more and more in transportation costs.

yes, I know what it says on the website. I told the BLM many times I'm not doing that and they said ok. What's the difference between 1x1's and 2x6s? He's going to see the wood either way and there is wire up. Meaning there's no way he can get through and he will see the wood and wont smash into it. Unless there's a good reason, other than "that's what they require" 1x1s seem fine.

Just to be sure, it wouldn't hurt to shoot a photo of your fence off to the main BLM. You may have gotten a too particular giblet delivering your horse.

That's what I think. I know she's right about the needing some wood, but I think with the coated wire its perfectly fine with 1x1s. I'm dying to have him home and not so thrilled about having to pay her when I didn't ask for this. But anything for the horse....haha

Did you ask the lady if the 1X1s would work? Is she affiliated with BLM? Have you talked to BLM since she came out?

I have not talked to them since, or about the 1x1s. I remember someone saying a 1x1 along the top would be good but didnt really matter. She is just a volunteer as far as I know. I feel bad about saying all this because she is being nice, I just think it's ridiculous.
