When I arrived at the barn to feed this morning something didn’t look quite right. It took me a moment to register that part of the fencing was down between the two paddocks.
Looking again, I confirmed that the horses were all in the right places, despite the lack of barrier.
Walking over to the electric tape that was lying in the snow, four horses (two on each side of their respective fence lines) followed me. They looked at the tape on the ground and got all snorty and wide eyed. None of them ventured close enough to test the barrier.
Thank goodness they don’t know the difference between a fence and a line in the snow!
