Review Question

Question: This barb wire fence is used to keep the horse on the path. Is it, by itself, an adequate barrier between children and large animals?


No, this fence is not an adequate barrier.


Barbed wire, smooth wire and electrical wire fencing should be avoided as a barrier between children and hazards. Their purpose is to contain animals and poses a hazard to children.

Additional Guidelines and Recommendations

  • Turn off all electric fences when visitors are on the operation, and be sure they are easily identifiable (if possible, remove all electric fences).
  • Double fencing is in place to prevent children from reaching animals that have a tendency to bite.
