Now that the Kentucky Derby has happened, horse racing is finally in season. If you enjoy horseback riding, then chances are, you’re attached to the horse you first learned to ride. Whether you care for one horse or five, when you own horses you need to take care of them. A vinyl fence can help keep them safe on your horse farm. Here’s how.
Given how lightweight it is, you wouldn’t expect a vinyl fence to be as sturdy as it is. But when you need to put a fence around a horse paddock, then you should put your trust in vinyl. When you take care of horses, then you understand that even when they are gentle and docile creatures, the fences keeping them safe can be easily damaged. When you use vinyl fences, you can prevent injuries to your horses as well as yourself and your family.
Little Maintenance Needed
As is the case with vinyl fencing used for residential or commercial purposes, vinyl fences for horses don’t need much maintenance. You don’t even have to repaint them. However, you will need to clean dirt, dust, and other debris off of your vinyl fence to keep it looking beautiful. All you have to do when it comes to cleaning is use your hose and some water. You don’t even need a power washer unless the stains are that resilient.
Lastly, consider the weather. You’d want to be sure your horses take shelter during a bad enough storm. Spring and summer will see some wild weather hit your farm. Even on calm and sunny days, you might not realize that these conditions are taking their toll on your vinyl fence because the weather is so mild. Even so, you don’t want your vinyl fence to be sun-baked and start to discolor or warp. Vinyl can resist the effects of erosion due to all kinds of seasonal weather, so take advantage of that fact.
