The other night I was doing my evening feed - and I witnessed something that truly scared the crap out of me! As the horses were coming into the barn to get fed, one of my mares was coming in at a really good clip - missed the gate and tumbled into this wire fence that was supported with huge pillars. The fence was guarding an area where we used to keep some of our dogs - and let them run around. We used huge 8" posts as supports, cemented into the ground at least 2 feet. In fact, we over-built the darn thing just so it wouldn't break. Well our mare demolished the thing. I figured for sure she was hurt, but other than being spooked she is fine! Two of the posts splintered and snapped - the fence folded. I though for sure she'd have cuts or something - but after checking her out - it appears she is no worse for the wear. Amazing!
