“I absolutely love our Centaur fence. Not only does it still look good after over 15 years but it has actually saved at least 2 of our horse’s lives and it even saved mine!
A young stallion eager to get closer to the mares and had apparently tried to jump the fence and only made it half way. Suspended by the fence with back feet dangling, there he hung! No telling how long he had been dangling there. Who knows what the outcome would have been with wood fencing!
Another instance occurred with a blind rescue mare. Much to my dismay I saw the blind mare being chased “full speed ahead” by several other mares. She ran into the Centaur fence at a fast gallop, bounced off, slid under it down on her side and hung herself up. By the time I got to her she had freed herself and walked off. Not a scratch, not a limp! I can only imagine what a wooden fence or other would have caused.
Finally, Centaur saved my life too! With the front end loader I was moving an old wore out manure spreader back to the junk pile. As I slowly rounded a tight corner I lifted the spreader higher to clear the fence. As I did the tractor started over and I was soon to be a dead vet. Quickly hitting the clutch to my surprise it stopped rolling. The strong Centaur fence that I had lifted the spreader over caught the spreader allowing the tractor to correct and right itself. I said a prayer and cleaned my pants. Once again not only had Centaur saved the day. It had saved a life – mine! Wooden fencing would have only broken.”
