[RC] Fence Question - Teresa Williams

My sister lives in TX, north of the DFW metroplex. Lots of horse people in TX use welded oil-well pipe pieces for fencing. Some folks weld 3 rail or 4 rail fences, while others weld posts with a top rail and add wire fencing below the top rail that is stretched between the upright pipe posts.
Here's the question: Anyone see a safety concern (or other concern) if she used chain link fencing rather than horse wire or field fence? She has found a source of lots and lots of used chain link that would be ideal to fence a significant portion of her new pasture area. Provided the pipe framework is solidly welded and the chain link is in good repair, anyone see a reason not to take advantage of the availability of chain link fencing?
Thanks for your thoughts!
