More Tornado equinet and creosote timber fencing and paddocks near Marlborough

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.

See our post from last summer showing some of the 3,500m of post and stud rail we erected to make the side fence to the racehorse gallops.

Manton Downs Stud Rail Project

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.

Woodland Fencing project in Savernake Forest, near Marlborough 

We are undertaking a large ongoing woodland project near Marlborough,  creating new fenced areas to allow grazing within Savernake Forest; this will allow cattle back into the ancient forest to help with its management. The fencing consists of 2 strands of barbed wire and a single strand of plain wire.
