We have many years of erecting paddock fencing to allow your animals to graze in safety and keep them on your land. We only use the highest quality materials and animal safe stains should you require us to stain your fence. We also have experince of creating manage and school rings of any size and design.
Electric fencing is a very economical and effective method for containing horses and ponies. It can be set up as a temporary fence, or in combination with wooden strainer posts at corners and ends, will act as a low cost semi-permanent fence.
A temporary electric fence can be used for strip grazing, or keeping horses away from dangerous areas (and each other). Being very light it can be carried around on 'treks' and used as an 'instant corral'.
Permanent electric fencing i.e. post and 'electric' rail costs between 25-30% of the cost of a normal Post and Rail fence and it can be erected in less than a quarter of the time.
Why you need to maintain your pasture.
If you keep horses, it is important that you maintain your paddock and pasture lands properly as a well-kept green pasture is essential to their health and wellbeing.
Horses can also damage the environment, their hooves causing ruts, holes and furrows when the ground is wet, and their droppings can prevent the growth of healthy grasses and harbour parasites.
Left unattended, your pasture will become choked with weeds, grass will grow unevenly and wild plants such as docks, thistles and nettles will stunt the growth of healthy grass.
Pasture Maintenance can help prevent this, and our services, ranging from soil analysis, ground maintenance and spraying through to "poo vacuuming", the mechanised removal of droppings from the pasture, will ensure that your paddock or pasture remains healthy, valuable and a safe environment for your animals.
