Tornado Torus horse fence provides a range of permanent low maintenance solutions for containing your horse and any other animals that may also share their pasture. We recommend a double fence in situations where horses are present on both sides.
What is the best way to secure grazing horses with sheep or goats?
Horse fencing often has to play a multifunctional role, not only securely containing your horse and any other animals who share their grazing, but also deterring domestic animals, such as dogs, from entering the paddock.
What is best practice when dividing fences and paddocks?
Where paddocks are divided and there is a possibility that horses could be on both sides of the fence, we recommend double-fencing with at least one metre between the two fences. Alternatively, Suregreen's Fortis Electric Fencing is a popular choice for dividing fences.
Can you tell me more about the Torus knot?
The Torus knot from Tornado features a high-pressure bonded knot with continuous verticle stay wire for optimal strength. This creates a smooth knot with no sharp edges and benefits from being a stronger knot than the hinge joint.
