I've been noticing this week lots of the horse farms are repairing or replacing fences. Horses are large beasties & they love to loaf about & lean on fences, which if the boards are not on the correct horse side of the posts, can easily & quickly pop off. Wire fences are not good choices for horses & the latest product on the market is a rather expense white vinyl "board" fencing, but it also needs to be set on the inside. Four boards are the preferred number, but many use just 3 boards.
Because horses do this - loaf about & lean on the fence;

and if you have fences like this;
|boards on the outside of the fence|
you need to do this;
|add a vertical board to the outside of the post to prevent board popping off|
or set your fence boards to the horse correct side;
|boards set to the inside of the fence|
From the first photo: Duffy wears a fly mask to keep the annoying horseflies off his face & ears. The grazing muzzle is to prevent his eating grass while outside. Too much grass makes for a chubby version of Duffy but he needs to be outside, which is good for his mind & body.
