Topic

There are so many dangerous things I have found on horse farms.  These include sharp objects, exposed electric wires and bee hives in the wall.  Most of the issues come from either laziness of the barn owner or lack of money to make the repairs.

The cost of having dangerous things on the farm ranges from additional time lost in treating wounds, the added expense for a veterinary visit, the lost training time or the loss of use or death of the horse.  

I have seen stall walls made of horizontally laid boards that can move up and down in end slots that trap the legs of a horse during their roll.  The guillotine effect of the one leg over the night hours leads to exhaustion and the eventual death of the horse by morning.  I have seen this, and it is awful.
