I have to say, it is true that living in a place for a while helps you figure out what you need and what wroks best in fencing… I mean, I had to put in the original fencing to house the horses, but once they were in, there were so many other factors to consider – weather, slope, traffic, horse paths, sun, shade, shelters… – when I put in these new fencelines, I knew exactly what I needed and wanted. A very good feeling.
The new fenceline is in between Annie/Mo/Gwen/Missy Miss! It looks so. much. better. than a red panel zigzag. Although, I will say that having panels available are a horsegodsend. Panels are so workable and are an instant aid when needed…
Anyway, I had the panels up so I could separate Annie, should she get pushy with anyone. And because it was way easier for me to groom them when I could single out whomever. Whenever I’d bring out the grooming bucket, I’d get mauled…
And, for me, being OCD (a bit), looking at a true fence instead of the uneven panels, eased my mind. Also a consideration, our AirBnB guests can now look out over the horses and it all looks organized and complete, which was important to me. THANK YOU, HUBBY!
I’ve explained what we did on the caption of each photo below.
I wanted a gate so I could get into the 5 acres without having to go through the horse pastures. I also wanted to be able to bring a horse with me into the 5 acres – safely. In this way, I could close all the other gates to the 5 acres and bring a horse with me down there to work or ride them, eventually. It is steep, but the bottom part is flat. I’m working on this.
