    Bushhoging it will cost $600+/- if I can't find someone who wants to mow it and keep most of the bales for themselves as payment...

    Oh, wait....Found someone else and they charge far less! So might not be so terrible...And they may still want to make hay off it and have that be the payment. [​IMG]

    What are the "rubber fencing" you are talking about? I'd love to know more...

    It's about 4-5in wide rubber things. Fence is quite tall, but the rubber is spaced too far apart to keep anything in other than an actual horse and not my herd of loonies! Lol

    Ah. Looks like Ramm Fencing's high tensile wire fence. If you put hot wire strands between the bottom and middle and/or middle and top - works well for the ponies (and sheep) while still looking good. This is Centaur's fencing in these two pics...

    [​IMG]

    Had that at the farm that I leased acreage from. They did 3 strands, too, and it didn't always hold out ponies either, but did for short times. In your fence, it looks like it's attached to the post. Ar the tighteners on the other end?

    I saw some on a cross fence that is the neighbors. IDK if the other sections have it. I just know one is broke off, they were using just staples to keep it on. Not worth the risk, field fencing is going up behind the rubber.

    55mph road next to it with people going 65, so...

    Got more pics of the fence.

    I'm 5'7 and wearing 2in heeled sandals. So the tallest fence I've seen in person.

    I know why cattle are always in there, the old barbed wire rusted away. IDK how the 3 horses the other neighbor had in thete ever stayed put!

    Ive never seen fencing like that before, it looks quite good but I can understand why you want extra protection for the horses.

    As Paula mentioned you could put electric wire in between the rails.

    If it were 4 rails, I could add hot wire between and probably not worry much, but as is, the dogs could slip under easily. They are trained to hot wire, so could add one line at the bottom, 2 in the middle and one at the top. But I would still worry with it being by that road.

    Rather be safe than sorry.

    Not great or perfect, but decent, lol. Little trouble with the turn at the end.

    This is my crazy, unhanded, once dangerous pony! When I first got him, he was scared of everyone, everything and the whole world was a giant, horse eating monster! =0

    Ive been following your thread since the beginning. The above words were your part of your opening post.

    I think the title of thread "Says it all"

    Big congratulations to you both from the other side of the world , You really have come such a long way [​IMG]

    Here's one of those random things he simply just stops being afraid of! I don't work with him about this and other random things like this. I was able to brush him over the rack and he had no issue with it and this time I had the camera with me. I can even sweep the barn without him running out in fear of it possibly touching his precious little legs, lol. I brush the minis with it from time to time and he always leaves as soon as I lift the brush up.

    We've been walking every day for about 2wks. Last few days, starting to trot.

    But today, he decided to try his old antics from the wee little grumbles. Worked through them and he eventually accepted it and we ended on a good note.
