Saving your Post and Rail from being eaten by Horses

Hi all,

So we are allowing our horses limited access to the field this time of year to try to save it for the spring and summer, in doing this the horses are looking for other things to chew and your beautiful post and rail is coming under fire?, it might also ne used as a scratching post? of your horse is leaning over into another field pushing the posts at an angle.Have a look at these stand off insulators you will find them to be a god sent. If your horse is using your fence to try to remove his/her rug then read the blog below for help with this.

Let's stop this!


The good news is that stand off insulators are not only for horses, they work will to keep Mr Fox away from your existing pen of or keep Mr Badger away from the fence.


So we have a whole bunch of kits specially designed to protect Post and Rail fences - to see them click here - and all can be customised exactly to suit your own set-up !

Any questions just ask!

So the Post and Rail kits generally use stand off insulators.

We have stand off insulators for rope, tape, galvanised wire and even poly wire.
