PVC Vinyl Fencing – Vinyl vs Wood Horse Fences
Wood has been a popular material for horse fences. However, the high cost of maintaining and repairing the fence has made horse owners look for alternative materials. Rotting, fading and warping are common for a wood horse fence. Required regular maintenance and replacement of rotten posts and rails make owning a fence very expensive over time.
Post and rail vinyl fencing from Bufftech is popular with horse owners for many reasons. It’s great looking, easy to install, and offers the strength and durability that is needed for horse enclosures of any size. Best of all, horses are unlikely to chew or crib a PVC vinyl fence. Vinyl fencing is just not attractive to horses with those habits, and doesn’t provide the rewards that wood fencing does for horses.
Cribbing and Wood Chewing Are Common Problems
Both of these bad habits are thought to be compulsive behaviors in horses, but the causes of cribbing and wood chewing aren’t thoroughly understood. What is easy to understand, though, is the damage horses can do to traditional wood post and rail fencing. Replacing chewed wood increases the cost of horse ownership, and the action can damage horse’s teeth. Here’s how Bufftech PVC vinyl post and rail fencing can help minimize that damage and keep your fenced areas looking their best.
- Vinyl Isn’t Attractive to Horses – The smooth finish and tough nature of Bufftech vinyl post and rail fencing discourages horses from practicing these bad habits. Since horses seem to learn these behaviors from each other, inhibiting the habits can result in big savings.
- Vinyl Fencing Is Tough – When a horse attempts to chew or crib on a strong PVC vinyl fence, like those manufactured by Bufftech, the initial results are a failure to damage the material. That helps discourages the habit. Bufftech, too, designs its post and rail vinyl fencing to be strong enough to resist pushing and pulling forces. While no fence can completely prevent damage from horses, Bufftech fences are among the strongest fences you can buy.
- Additional Options – If your horses attempt to chew or crib on a Bufftech vinyl post and rail fence, it’s easy to add a hot wire to the top rail of the fence. Since the PVC vinyl material is an excellent electrical insulator, installation is easy and the wire is unobtrusive.
