    I've actually seen this done too. Granted, it was inside regular fencing, to section off areas of pasture... but apparently never had any problems with it... but it wouldn't last for 30 seconds with my boys though...

    How's she doing today?

    BTW, Mikey agreed to come out Saturday and do abit of groundwork/ manners stuff with her, if you think she's up to it.

    Jingles for a full recovery. Don't blame yourself, these magnificent fragile animals can injure themselves on nothing at all. I lost a 2-year old gelding to a broken leg, it just broke while he was out running in the pasture, no hole, no kicking, just snapped. The vet said, sometimes these things just happen, no matter how much we do to try to keep them safe.

    Jingles for sure. I used the welded wire cattle panels to fence in my backyard for the dogs because I didn't have to have corner posts. Sometimes it's a wonder to me that horses as a species have survived like they have.

    I know someone who uses your standard electric tape fence with capped T-posts. It's intermittently, if ever, charged, and her horses don't ever test it.
    You have to have experiences to gain experience.

    No kidding this is a Zombie thread. I haven't had that mare for years and haven't lived on that farm for 18 months! How on earth did this get resurrected?

    I'm betting it showed up in the new "similar threads" box below...I have the feeling we will be seeing a lot of this.
