Re: RC: Barbed wire fencing

I take in a few boarders and have wire fencing.  My fence is smooth wire; the neighbor's is barb wire.  Before every new boarder arrives, I walk around my entire acreage and hang surveyor's tape from the fence.  The tape flutters in the breeze so that the horses can see the perimeter of the property.  I then lead the new horse around all the pastures so that he can see the fence.  After awhile, the tape will disintegrate but by that time, the horses know their boundaries.  This has worked well for me for many years, too.
