If you’re in the midst of revamping your location’s current horse fencing, then you have a big road ahead of you. Most people start by looking at different local suppliers, see what kind of materials and options they have available, and then go from there. Unfortunately, this doesn’t take into consideration the specific needs of the customer, which is so important, since no two farms or stables have the same horses or set up.
Best Practices For Horse Fencing Installation
If you want to be as efficient as possible when installing any new type of horse fencing, you need to start by looking inward, not outward. The type of fencing that you currently have, potential expansion plans, and quality of horse care are all things that need to be considered before you begin looking at potential partners to buy new horse fencing from.
Evaluate The Available Space
One of the first things you need to do before investing in any new horse fencing is have a very clear idea of just how much space you want to enclose or barricade. You need to think about how much acreage will provide adequate grazing on high-quality grass. This depends on a number of factors, including soil fertility, climate, and even grazing behavior. Come up with a few potential layouts to provide maximum flexibility.
Know The Temperament of Your Horses
Horses will behave differently depending on not only their environment, but also their innate temperament. Elderly or infirm horses will behave much differently than younger or higher strung horses. This variation in temperament could mean that you need to have more subsections. By better understanding how each of your animals behaves, the better suited you’ll be to plan the next round of horse fencing.
Plan For Maintenance
Installing your horse fencing is only the first step, since you need to think about long term maintenance. Unfortunately, many farmers or stable operators overlook what any type of maintenance costs can look like, which can be a detriment to your business growth. You need to plan for frequent inspections (weekly and monthly to find weak spots), and know how you’ll create temporary blocks in case something becomes damaged. You don’t want to be caught without a plan when aspects of your fence break down.
