what if doorbells went dong ding instead of ding dong
don’t say something like that
I dont know how people can use barbwire to fence in their horses..
A lot of people use it actually. The horses tend to avoid it. We have barbed wire for fencing at my barn and there has been one serious injury due to it in the 7 years I have been there….
When I was working in polo all of the horses were in barbed wire. One of them charged through it, got it tangled round her hock and went into hospital straight away. She had 3 operations to try and remove the shrapnel that had caused an infection in her hock but was p.t.s.
I thought that after that disaster the first thing my boss at the time would have done was replace the barbed wire with something safer. Nope. All the money that Roxy’s operations cost him and he couldn’t be arsed to replace the wire. 2 more horses went through it in the next year, one was eventually p.t.s and the other survived.
Aswell as the horses going through it they would often lean across it and we had several horses with constant cuts on their faces and necks due to the wire.
I will NEVER put my horses on barbed wire and I will avidly disagree with anyone who does.
It’s like yeah, sure, all fencing COULD potentially cause injury. So let’s fence the horses in with fencing *designed to cause injury*.
Right! I remember last autumn Paloma rolled wayyy too close to my electric fencing and caught her leg in it as she got up, got shocked and charged around the field luckily only breaking a post and her pride as she went. Imagine if that was barbed wire though, she would have severely damaged herself. No fencing is perfect but c’mon, barbed wire.. Really. REALLY. Just don’t.
My horse is an idiot but to the person saying that horses tend to stay away from barbed wire… What if a sensible horse accidentally rolled too close, spooked at something and kicked out or maybe even decided the grass was greener on the other side?
Kay so although I would personally never fence a horse I’m barbed wire, there are people around here who do. I can tell you that they do so because the pastures that are fenced with barbed wire are generally 100+ acres. It would be ridiculously expensive to fence it with anything else, and I can tell you the number of times I see a horse anywhere near a barbed wire fence line. So, like everything else, do what you want with your own horse but people do have their reasons for doing what they do.
The racing stud I worked for earlier this year had a really sweet filly who I reckon would have had a good career on the track, they sold her for $15k, and the new owners put her in a barbed wire fenced paddock. This was a yearling who had been in a concrete/brick box and a rubber-coated walker for the past 3 months of her life and they put her in a paddock like that. She inevitably got caught up in the wire and had to be PTS.
She was one of my favourites, too..
Hannibal looks like a really cute show ok I mean from what i’ve seen on my dash it’s basically a nice story about a single dad who happens to be a cannibal in is spare time and his daughter and his on-again-off-again boyfriend?? i think i’ll watch an episode
