  7. Cost-effective: Post & rail fencing is a cost-effective option that provides excellent value for the money. Its long-lasting durability & low maintenance requirements make it an excellent investment for landowners.
  1. Limited Security: While equine/animal post & rail fencing provides containment for larger animals such as horses & livestock, it may not offer the same level of security as solid fencing options. The gaps between the rails allow for visibility and air circulation, but may provide opportunities for smaller animals to enter or larger animals to lean or push through.
  2. Initial Cost: Depending on the material & customisation options chosen, equine/animal post and rail fencing can be more expensive upfront than alternative fencing options. The high-quality wood or durable vinyl materials used in its construction contribute to its aesthetic appeal & longevity, but can result in a higher initial investment.
  3. Maintenance Requirements While equine/animal post & rail fencing is relatively low maintenance compared to some fencing types, it still requires periodic upkeep. Depending on the types of animals you're housing, additional safety measures may be required with equine/animal post & rail fencing. Smaller pets or livestock that can fit through the gaps between the rails may need additional wire mesh or electric fencing added to prevent their escape or unauthorised entry.
  4. Vulnerability to Weathering: Wood post & rail fencing, while visually appealing, can be susceptible to weathering over time. Exposure to sunlight, moisture & extreme temperature fluctuations can lead to fading, warping, or decay. Regular maintenance & protective treatments are necessary to prolong the lifespan of the fence & maintain its structural integrity.
