Re: RC: Barbed wire fencing

PS, Kerry
I should add that I would remove any barbed wire at the bottom of any

I know, dumb Yankee here, but how do you introduce a horse to this type of fencing without them getting injured?
> If you're wondering why I'm asking, my first experience with barbed wire and one of my horse wasn't a good one and it has me a little nervous.  I was trailering out to WY last summer and had a stop-over in western Nebraska and the place we stayed at had barbed wire fencing.  To make a long story short, my mare accidently ran into it and had to stay at a nearby vet clinic for 2 weeks.  She fully recovered and will probably respect the fence next time but my other horse loves to lean on fences and push out boards.
