Good Fences--Don't Fence Me In
A Cowboy needs a good fence . . . A choice is made. Based on?
Need? Durability? Finances? Sometimes just going along with whats already there.
Today I am sharing a variety of fences used to 'hold in' the Blue Roan . . .
An excellent choice. The pipe fence. Strong and durable. Maintenance free. Except for occasional paint.
Another good choice. Wood is strong and durable but can be dangerous if damaged. And much more
maintenance is required.
A pretty wood fence can show off a property. But a poorly constructed fence can be dangerous.
A horse can easily run through a wood fence causing sever injury
Not sure how to classify pipe and wire. Pipe is an excellent choice. However this wire type of fence can be
dangerous. Horses are notorious for getting a leg caught in a fence. I think if I had this beauty I'd be thinking about some strong safe fences.

Amazing beautiful horse. My least favorite fence. Barbed wire is meant to hold in cattle. Not horses.
This is a strong well maintained fence but it is a dangerous fence. I've seen riders fall off horses onto
barbed wire fencing. It is extremely dangerous.

Whatever the choice it takes some good fences to keep a horse safe.
