This is a continuation of work we have undertaken earlier in the year. The Equinet and creosote fencing is to keep the polo ponies in and the dogs out and the new paddocks are for yearlings and resting racehorses. Equinet is from the UK Tornado brand and the UK equivalent for Keepsafe which is a USA product.
Great job by Alex Draper, Dave Thompson and Adam Patterson.
Here we ran 800m water pipes 750mm below ground without actually having to dig up the ground. The spinning water pipe feeds into the ground from a leg on the machine and the tractor dictates its direction. All clever stuff.
This is for the same project on Manton Downs as our previous post…
This is an ongoing project running over several months.
Here we show Dave’s video featuring some 3,500m approx of post and stud rail we erected to make the side fence to the racecourse gallops. This took us about 10 days to complete.
We then needed to add a number of 5-bar timber gates and some additional fencing to ensure the horses can be safely secured. You’ll see a couple of the gates we painted white which was in keeping with them being at the side of the gallops.
