Red Brand Woven Horse Wire

This page is dedicated to the woven wire  farm fencing that is used on both farm and at residential country homes.

On the farm, this type of fence often has a single strand of barb wire along the top and sometimes a single electric fence wire at animal shoulder height to keep a horse or cow from scratching / rubbing, and knocking the fence down.

This style fence is very popular at country cabin getaway homes in the mountains for keeping the dog home and predators at bay. It maintains the country look and feel that you can't get with chain link fence. The beauty of this style fence is that it practically disappears from sight with the woods as a backdrop.

We do a lot of 3 and 4 rail board and post fence (sometimes called horse fence / pasture fence) with some type of wire field fence attached to the back side.  Sometimes a  post and board fence will be used across the front of the property  for the look, and then when the fence gets out back or in the woods where it is not visible from the road the wire field fence alone will be used to complete the enclosure. See photos of this type of  fence on the board and post fence page.

HOG WIRE FIELD FENCE

The “ hog wire “ fence pictured here starts with 2 inch high by 6 inch wide spacing between the individual wires at the bottom, and the spacing gets larger the higher up you go until they measure approx. 6 in. X 6 in. at the top - great for large dogs, but for smaller dogs I would advise using woven horse wire or goat wire with smaller openings.

3 to 4 inch round pressure treated post set in concrete with strong wire diagonal bracing create the corner bracing between which the woven wire is tightly stretched and stapled. Metal T-post are then set at 10 foot intervals along the length of fence between the corner bracing to hold the fence upright. The combination of, the ease of installation of the T-post and the economical cost of farm wire field fence fabric and supplies makes this a relatively inexpensive fence for containing large acreage and large mountain lots.

Tubular mesh Gates available in galvanized ( pictured at right) or painted red, green, blue, and black  make the perfect gates to compliment  this type of fence. These gates can be purchased in 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16 foot widths and can be used in two's to make double drive gates of any combination.

Extra large post were used to keep the fence upright on the soft steep earth embankment by setting 6 inch round X 8 ft. post nearly 4 ft. into the ground, secured in concrete.

WOVEN HORSE WIRE also known as “NO CLIMB FENCE” because the holes between the wires are too small for horses and people to insert a foot.

This customer in the Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay, GA wanted to create a deer free garden area, so he chose to use 6 ft. tall WOVEN HORSE WIRE  fastened to round wood post set in concrete. He called a few weeks later and said he was delighted with the fence, so I guess the deer are staying out! Fresh garden goodies in the Spring might make the deer change their minds!

Here is a 4 foot tall fence constructed from 4 inch round wood corner post secured in concrete with heavy duty diagonal wire bracing that keeps the corners standing upright as the wire fence fabric is tightly stretched from corner to corner. Once stretched, the fabric is then tied to metal T-post which have been driven into the ground at 10 foot intervals along the fence line. This fence also incorporates an inexpensive single strand of braided electric fence wire along the top around the entire perimeter of the fence which is attached to an electric fence generator putting out around 9600 volts, a good deterrent for any wildlife or livestock.

All of the “woven wire” type of fencing, including hog wire, horse wire, goat and lamb wire, orchard wire, are exactly what the name implies; the horizontal and vertical wires are actually woven around each other to create a very strong fabric.

The “welded wire” type of fence (not shown) has the horizontal and vertical wire simply laying across each other with a weld at the junction holding them together. This weld is easily broken and the wire itself used in the production of welded wire fence fabric is of a thin gage that will be cut in half if hit by a power weed trimmer.

Woven wire cost approx. $50 per 100 linear feet more than welded wire, but if you have a situation where you will want to cut the grass along the fence line, you should consider the heavier more expensive woven wire fence products.
