Two days ago we got out first horse, 21yo mare Arabian Holsteiner mix. I put up temporary electric 4ft. fence, and in morning let her out.
Neighbor has 3 mares but in a paddock, red barn down over the hill.
I haven't fenced all our place which is why temporary electric.
Yesterday neighbor lets their 2 dogs out (they can't come over here), it spooked our horse and she jumped 4ft fence. We got her up ok.
This morning I'm letting her graze, then 20 minutes later doorbell rings. Another neighbor's gardener saw her running down the road (not knowing it was our horse).
Apparently she jumped again (I can't see where, fence is fine).
Today I'm putting electric wire around property, two wires with white tape, at 3ft and 5'2". At least if she jumps she'll be on our property not out on road.
Does this sound reasonable?
Eventually I want woven wire everywhere on property border.
