As mentioned above I have already repaired the fence and my neighbour offered to fix the tensioning wire. My neighbour has now changed his mind and wants a further £250 to undo the repairs made and replace with new.
Should the repair return the fence to exactly as it was before or can it be different e.g. I have tried to strengthen the fence such that the horse will not bend it again. He helped me do the repair and is now saying he does not like the repair as it is unsightly.
No this is only one occurrence.
1/ The horse damaged the fence
2/ I paid for materials and repaired the fence with the help of neighbour - Neighbour agreed to purchase and fit re-tensioning wire
3/ Neighbour changes mind and now does not like repair
4/ Neighbour insists I pay £250 to re-instate fence exactly as it was prior to damage including replacement tensioned fence and removal of my repair.
I will therefore have paid twice for the same repair.
