Do You Need a Paddock Fence?

Do You Need a Paddock Fence?

If you live on a horse farm, then you know how important it is to keep your horses safe. A paddock fence can help with that.

If you live on a horse farm, then you know how important it is to keep your horses safe. A paddock fence can help with that. So if you have questions about a new paddock fence, then you’re in luck. That’s because we have the answers you might need.

Strong Materials

Many paddock fences you find in your area will be made of oak. When it comes to wooden fences for any purpose, you can’t go wrong with oak. That’s because oak is one of the strongest types of wood there is, and no matter what the function of your farm is, you will want the sturdiest materials you can get your hands on. The oak fence will last much longer than other species of wood, even cedar. This means that your fence will last much longer, so you won’t have to worry about replacing your paddock fence too soon after installation.

Protecting Animals

Even if you aren’t taking care of horses, you might be raising chickens, lambs, goats, sheep, or cows. Protecting your livestock is another good reason to have a paddock fence built on your property. Plus, horses can be kept safe without wasting too much wood, metal, and wire all at once. You’ll save time, money, and effort, even if you don’t have to maintain your fences yourself. Horses, in particular, aren’t very picky animals even if they can be high maintenance in other respects – giving them a boundary is enough to keep them contained.  

Increasing Security

You probably won’t have to worry about anyone stealing your horses or cows in the middle of the night. Even so, it wouldn’t hurt to increase the security around the perimeter of your land. That’s why paddock fences can serve another purpose: they are also privacy and security fences. One way to do this is to add some wire mesh to existing fences or integrate it into new fence panels as they go up. The mesh can block the gaps in between boards and posts, which will keep wild animals out and also help protect your curious household pets, such as dogs and cats, from escaping while you can’t watch them.
