Cost effective Electric Fencing.
Electric fencing is the most cost effective and efficient method of containing horses while safeguarding them from injury. Barbed wire, woven-wire, and wooden fences can injure a horse that attempts to run through or jump over them. If a horse gets tangled in barbed wire, the subsequent wound could well be fatal.
Advantages of Electric Fencing?
Electric fencing has many advantages, lower cost, easier to install, requires less maintenance and controls horses more effectively than traditional fencing. Electric fencing is a very economical and effective method for containing horses and ponies. It can be set up as a temporary fence, or in combination with wooden strainer posts at corners and ends, will act as a low cost semi-permanent fence. A temporary electric fence can be used for strip grazing, or keeping horses away from dangerous areas (and each other !).
Is Electric Fencing Effective?
Electric Poultry Netting is far away the most effective and cost effective system for protecting valuable animals and horticultural produce from predators including Foxes, feral dogs, badgers and Rabbits. Electrified Netting is very versatile, mobile and highly effective method of securing the safety of your hens. Electric Fences have been used around the world to contain EVERY mammal ranging from Elephants down to Snails (I know a snail is not a mammal - it just highlights its versatility)
Theft of Electric Fencing
The popularity of Electric Fencing in England and around Europe has led to an increase in thefts of expensive energisers. By the very nature that a battery driven electric fence energiser is left in remote rural areas invariably on the edge of fields means that they are easy targets and liable to be stolen by itinerant thieves. It is very hard to disguise their presence as the fence itself is highly visible and probably several miles long so a thief has to simply follow the fence to find the energiser and purloin it leaving valuable livestock to be free to roam or removing the necessary protection from predators. Horizont has developed a range of anti-theft energisers and solutions that combat this by incorporating a tracking device enabling you to follow the signal on a simple smartphone app. This has already proven successful on a raid in Germany.
Post and Rail Fencing.
Traditional post and rail fencing in the United Kingdom looks good, and lasts for up to 20 years, but requires a fair bit of maintenance and is very expensive to install. Frequently post-and-rail fencing also needs to be combined with a top strand of electric wire as horses have a habit of leaning on it, rubbing against it (which loosens posts) or chewing the top rail which reduces its lifespan and increases maintenance costs.
