Can you post pictures of the fencing?
I think I know what you're talking about, but I'm not exactly sure...
If it is what I'm thinking then it's pretty thick, about an inch or so.

That is exactly what I was going to ask. I am very curious too. Sounds interesting. If nothing else, can you post the sketch you sent to the BLM?

I would like to know how you did the ends and how you attached it to the post, etc.

This is great news! Hopefully you will use some of their knowledge from now on.

I have to assume, that since they have BLM horse experience that you did not discuss the non-compliant fence with them before building it. If you had I assume they would have told you what was required.

I can use decades. Heck, that is not even counting all the years I was riding before I became a legal adult.

I see alot of fencing made of wire here now. Usually it is done with metal posts and the wire goes through the posts then attaches at the ends with clamps. There are wire tighteners in the end pieces so you can continually tighten the fence up. My neighbor did it to his place and it is about 7 foot high with five strands of wire. It is woven thick wire, no way a horse could break through it, although one could put a leg through. Since the holes are drilled through the metal fence posts, it is very sturdy, but if the wire was just attached to wood posts, then I imagine it could be a safety issue at some point.
I know the BLM is very very careful here when they adopt, even if you pass the application process, they send someone out to check the fences, if they don't pass, you don't get the horse. Lots of folks try to get by with lesser fence and it just doesn't work. After all, these are WILD horses, even if they have been in corrals for awhile, doesn't mean they will not panic and revert to wild behavior when put in a new situation without friends.

Could you imagine? To be like that girl Veronica on Saddle Club... and yes, I must admit I do watch it.

On this not, I think it's time to close this one. On second thought. People could learn from it.

Please do not close it. I really am interested in photos and sketches of the fencing.

The OP says she sent sketches to the BLM so I should hope once they (since it is two people, really) get back on they will be able to easily post them.

Against my better judgement, I will leave this thread open. Should the explicit insults continue, the thread will be closed and removed.

Well, I spend my time "trolling" the forum usually while at work...a minute here and a minute there. I have my 2 horses that I do board at another place because I don't have the room. BUT...I'm the one who takes care of them. I feed and change water twice a day (before I come into work, and when I get off from work); clean stalls, when my guys are actually inside...twice a day when needed though; I'm RESPONSIBLE (both monetarily and physically)for ALL repairs that are needed on the barn or fencing...including buying new gates, posts, boards, and the web horse fencing to go on the OUTSIDE of the three 1X6 boards that are on the fence to hold the BO's 2 miniature donkeys in; AND I'm responsible for keeping both the barn and the tack room clean. My husband pays for NOTHING even though he's primarily the one who rides my little mare. No vet bills, feed, hay, farrier, repairs...nothing. I know that at times I struggle, have NEVER been rich...or had a sugar daddy, have never been considered by anyone to be snotty or spoiled...and believe me when I say that I have pulled myself up by my thin and frayed shoe strings more than a few times.

I have ridden since I was 7 or 8. I worked at a show barn for 5 years working the horses, showing for others, giving lessons, mucking stalls, feeding, and anything else he needed me to do just to semi-prepare myself to have my own horse. Not to mention owning off and on for the past 30 some odd years, having to sell or give horses away when I could no longer afford all the expenses. I've had many "accidents" myself...scrapes, bruises, losing teeth, breaking bones, injuring internal organs, and having to make trips to the ER and actually staying in the hospital for up to 10 days (at least one of those being in intensive care) because of my love and passion for horses. I will say that I learn lots from the horses themselves, and more from other people who have been involved horses longer and sometimes shorter amounts of time than I have. The people on THIS FORUM alone have helped me out more times than I can count. I'm learning more every day by being a "forum *****", and I'm LOVING every minute of it.

You're 18 and still have a lot to learn...as do I being much older than you. You're about the same age as my daughter (who I raised by myself), and loving her as much as I do, I can't shelter her or keep her from making mistakes. She's at the point that she's learning from life and her own mistakes. I don't think anybody's intention on here was to attack you...I know that wasn't mine. My first experience owning a "seasoned" horse was a nightmare...even though I had been around and working with horses for most of my life. I was offering my advice from my own experiences. If you took offense to it, I'm sorry. But I have to agree with the person who posted "Don't burn any bridges" in a previous post in this thread. There is a wealth of information on here. It's up to you whether you want to utilize it or not.

BTW...it's taken me over 2 hours to make this post due to my being at work. And I know nobody has noticed, but I normally don't get on here very much after work due to having other responsibilities that have to be taken care of along with the horses during the evenings.

Saying all of this, I wish you the best of luck in your first horse owning experience.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

I'm not posing up the paperwork. I'll post pictures of the fence when I take pictures of my horse so I can have his conformation looked at. Please delete this thread as I was not the one posting for the most part and it is lies. I've never broken a horse but have been around them for years. If you look at my other posts they are not rude. Please just delete this it's a load of bullcrap drama.

Really? Then just who was posting all the lies, drama, and vile insults under your user name? A drunken house guest? Some stranger off the street? Your cat?

The cat I might actually believe, as they're in a plot to take over the world and can't be trusted......
