Typically, installing a light-duty fence is a simple matter of marking out your posts and running your wire between them. Unfortunately, the process of installing on an uneven or sloped surface is a bit more involved. Sloped fencing requires taking into account the land’s natural grade and trying to match the fence to its ebb and flow.
Anyone who works on a farm (or cattle ranch, or horse training facility, or anywhere else that holds livestock), knows that the work is never truly done. There’s always something that needs fixing, an animal that needs care – or, in the case of a horse barreling through your wire fencing, both at the same time!
SAFETY, SECURITY, AND AFFORDABILITY
When it comes to caring for your horse, safety and security should be your number one priority. But what’s the best way to accomplish this goal while keeping it affordable? There are so many options for equine enclosures that selecting the right one for your property could feel overwhelming. Start by considering these key questions to help guide you to the right solution for your property.
Deciding to put up a new fence on your property not only means selecting a practical fence style, you’ll also need to determine what to use for the foundation. The two most popular post materials used to construct a wire fence are treated wood and steel t-posts. Many times, property owners choose to use a combination of these materials.
Goats Present Unique Fencing Challenges
Goats are notorious escape artists, maybe more so than any other farm animal. They are naturally inquisitive and mischievous animals and will try to remove, climb over or get around any obstacle in the way. Their determination to push boundaries makes protecting goats a huge challenge. A secure enclosure is essential in order to keep them safe from themselves as well as from predators.
Why Do We Love Our Dogs So?
The relationship with our canine friends is unique and complex. It seems the more we express affection and demonstrate care, the greater the bond. Domesticated dogs have come to rely on their human families for food, socialization and protection. When we provide these essential elements, our reward is unconditional love and loyal companionship.
