When a fence becomes a danger
There are an incredible variety of fence materials on the market. Cables, ropes or wires are difficult to see for horses. Many other materials allow the horse to rub or lean, with the related problems that follow given the strength of our friend. Others allow the development of bad habits, such as gnawing or worse support tics ...
Is this the situation in your home?

One of the best results of our ten-year work with electrified fences was that of not having more horses injured because of the fences. The notes below are the summary of your phone calls that denounced the disadvantages suffered by your horses with the use of dangerous fences. Hoping that they can be a warning to those who have similar facilities in mind. Let's start talking about the most dangerous:

Try looking at this picture. Even if you do not have the mediocre view of the horse, you too, the only thing you notice are the two anti-collision ribbons Rif. B4 and not the terrible barrier of spinning rows behind. This fence is the cause, not only of scratches of the horse's mantle, but of severed tendons, of deep wounds, which cause very serious infections (very often tetanus) and acts as a support and propagator of diseases, with its claws that cut all the animals that pass by. How many horses have ruined? Even without the sharp thorns, the electric wire fence made of iron wire, much in use among breeders, called "stop everything" or "cut butter" is a terrible trap: once oxidized takes on a brownish tinge that makes it become completely invisible.
