PostSubject: fencing question   Mon Apr 26, 2010 9:19 pm

My hubby is finishing up our fence and I just thought about putting one of those things were you use post to keep the horses in and the person can just walk around from out side to the inside. I don't really know how to explain it. Some one posted pictures of one they built a few years ago. I don't want to open and close the gate every time I go in the field. So do you know what I am talking about? If you do, do you have pictures of one so I can show my handyman?? Thanks

No photos but what we used when I lived out west was a set of posts and rails that formed a V which intersected the post and rail fence line... sort of like this :

--------- >--------- Bearing in mind that the rails of the V need to overlap the straight line of the fence to the left in my oh so talented drawing! lol So essentially it forms a Zig of a Zig Zag and the horses cannot bend their way through it...

Am I almost clear as mud yet? lol

SUCCESS! lol found a picture on the web of what I am talking about (other than the fact we had post and rail or electric vs the barbed wire pictured here):

A couple ideas I found...

The one I am, use to is just 3 simple posts in a triangle.. just far enough apart a person can comfortably squeeze through sideways... Worked well for regular sized and smaller horses...
Never tried one on ponies though... (The middle post was on the pasture side of the fence.)

Just a "Walk through" from what I can gather...
