Why Mesh Fence Is
the Best Fencing For
According to horse fence experts, mesh fence is the best
choice of wire your horse fencing. The V mesh wire is the
best because it's close weave effectively prevents the foal
or horse from catching its foot in it. Its design makes it
very strong and can thus resist any push and pull by
your horses for instance when they are mating. This
factor also makes it capable of being used in stallion
paddocks. According to fencing experts, if the wire mesh
is kept stretched at its appropriate fitness, it has long life
span and requires little or no maintenance.
The only problem with this type of fencing is that it tends to sag
and also the horses may rid it down but this situation can be
prevented if you install top board. This top board in addition to
enhancing the sturdiness of the wire mesh fencing is also good for
structural soundness and for visibility. To ensure the fence
remains strong the supporting posts should be erected closer to
each other, probably at 10 feet from each other. This is because of
the warping of board which is likely to happen if the supporting
posts are erected further apart. In some instances, the woven
joints of this wire can scratch and even pull out tail and mane
hairs. The mesh may also catch the horse’s shoe.
Wire or vinyl mesh?
Mesh fence can be made of vinyl or wire. Each has its advantages
as well as disadvantages.
Typically, vinyl lasts longer than most of the other horse fencing
options. It also maintains its look for several years and rarely
needs painting. It is also easy to clean, and is rust free. Vinyl
mesh fence also offers the advantage of being flexible and does
not break or snap off easily. Best of all, vinyl fence needs little or
no maintenance and is thus cost effective both in the short and
the long run. The major shortcoming with vinyl fence is that it is
Wire mesh is fairly cheap and its installation is easy and thus not
costly. With the right supporting posts, wire mesh can last many
years. It is durable and can be painted with a colour of your
choice. Its downside is that rust may accumulate in the woven
wire or in the pots especially if it is not galvanized.
