Posting for my sister-in-law, who needs to find this little guy a home. "Buck" is a buckskin (he may be pinto, I will have to check) mini who needs a home as a companion. However, he cannot be in an electric fence because he does not respect them. Children must be supervised with him as he is a bit skittish and not suitable for unsupervised children. He gets along with others, can be turned out with big guys, and is a cute, easy-keeping (he is very fat right now) mini who needs a new, safer situation where he will respect the fence. Please e-mail me at email@example.com if you can give him a safe, loving home.
Hey...wish ! I could take him----But that has to wait for me, until my gelding will move from being boarded, to the little homebarn. Not for awhile, yet, but I do hope to get a lil guy friend when I do!
Which brings me to this question: Can you elaborate on the 'won't respect electric fence' scenario? I ask because, when I planned my fencing, I did so with the expectation of one day, having a mini on the property as well. And, so, along with the 3 'board' flex fence, I had fencer use a strand of hot coat above the fop 'rail' and also a strand of hot coat above the bottom 'rail'.
Is the 'electric fence' you speak of designed 'for' a mini, or is he just able to walk under a strand where it doesn't touch him?
"Indecision may or may not be my problem"
Sorry, I haven't checked this in sometime. To elaborate on the fence issue--she feels he will respect a board fence or solid fence but she has 4 strand Centaur electrical 1" fencing and he has not respected that (just recently). She has owned him for a few years and he has just figured this out. It is set up for horses but she has another mini that does repect it no problem. He has figured out how to slip through it so he will test a fence now that he has the idea. No climb or board fencing he would probably be fine.
He is a very cute buckskin paint that is adorable and fat and in need of a home!!! I can e-mail a photo if you e-mail me your address firstname.lastname@example.org
I can help find reasonable shipping for any interested approved homes.
