lovely horse to look at, and from what you've written, she has the right personality type for you.

I am a bit concerned about the fencing. it looks like the right size for a horse to put a foot through, or, if shod, to catch a shoe on possibly. I am not a pro about these things, but that fencing makes me a bit leary.

Don't know about where the OP is, but that 6" no-climb horse fencing is pretty common in my area. I've never seen or heard of a horse putting a hoof through the squares. Heck, I don't know about other horses, but my horse's hooves wouldn't even come close to fitting through there.

fencing doesn't look very strong, would be easy to try to reach over to grab snippets of food on the other side, getting bent in the process. and yes, i have had several shoes caught on wire fencing and pulled off.

If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.

Congratulations on your new mare! Sounds like you and she are coming right along <3

EDIT--I wanted to add more to this xD
Horses are individuals, just like people. They have brains and personalities--well, most of them do ;) In that regard, there will be some that 'bond' (or display behaviors we view as such) more quickly than others, just like some people will open up more quickly.
Ultimately, as others have said, it's about respect. c:

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

That is not what non-climb looks like. Non-climb has two inch vertical spacing. Much safer.

Sorry. That's what everyone around here calls no-climb. I know plenty of fields with horses around here that are fenced with that and have zero problems (one of them is right across the street from my hotel and I pass it every day on my way to work). I'd take that over barbed wire any day.

ANYWAY...

Back on track with the thread...
