their stalls, corrals, and even fenced in pastures are ALWAYS no more than 15 feet pole to pole, make sure ALL Cattle Type fencing is at least 4.5 feet high or higher and no more than 9" off the ground where the fencing is connected to the posts or metal poles.
ALWAYS try to seperate the Stallions from maers who may become or are in heat. That could cause severe stress to both the horses, and equal to the ranch owner in damages to the property of their own, their neighbors, or even cause a serious vehicle accident due to NOT TAKING THESE suggestions seriously. In some states, the "owner" can be legally held responsible if the animal continues to break freedom (including cattle) and are involved or causes a vehicle accident.
The GOOD LEARNING PART of this is... think just as smart as your horse or cattle. Know their weakness is simular as ours, and help them from issues that hurt someone by taking precautions.
These "lovable" and so historically beautiful animals is our heritage. Let's "TEAM UP" and protect them all, DOMESTIC or WILD, they all deserve to know our compassion and genuine caring feelings NOW before they suffer anymore than they have already.
Remember, we rescued Smokey from running into the paths of traffic on U.S. Highway 315 in Rusk County over a year ago at Christmas Time. I personally took that as a "mission" to save his life because of his compassion and magnetic personality besides his beauty. So has Jane and Terri among a lot that has seen him in action, running down the road, and leaping fences. He is remarkable in ability, yet has a very warm attraction to those who show no fear, but tons of love and respect for him. THESE PICTURES prove it too.
