Various animals respond well to different kinds of fencing. Barbed wire is still often utilized to pen cattle. Therefore barbed wire isn’t recommended for horses. Horse and cattle fences are usually at least 4-5 feet tall. Electrified fences are an efficient means to pen livestock and horses with minimal damage to fencing and the critters. Goats are extremely aggressive about trying to escape their pens. Field fencing (often referred to as goat cable) is a tight enough weave that goats can not get their heads through the cable holes.
The next fence types are common mosquito fencing options:
Vinyl rail fence
Smooth wire fencing
Goat net wire
3 railing wood fences: Articles are spaced 8-12 feet apart with railing wood railings suspended in 3 different heights. While cheap to set up, 3 rail fences require a whole lot of maintenance. Horses can damage or break the railings by kicking, leaning or chewinggum, and the railings rot with time from weather exposure.
Electric fences: Eletrified cable strung between posts. Electric fences shock the creature when it strikes the fence line. It can train animals to steer clear of the fence line entirely, reducing physical harm to the fence itself. Some possible problems: keep brush away from the cables to prevent fires. If an electrified wire gets too wet or connections metal, the fence is going to short
Vinyl railing fencing: requires less maintenance than wood because they don’t require horses and painting will not chew on the railings. However vinyl fences are not powerful and can be easily be ruined by horses
Smooth wire fencing: a pole fence with cable running between posts rather than rails. Not recommended for horses that cant see the cable fence lines really well
Goat net cable: a woven wire fence with a tight enough weave which goats, obviously aggressive and smart, can not escape.
Often referred to as weathered or bobbed wire in the Southeastern US
