Get good fencing for good neighbors from Finishline Horse Fencing

“Good fences make good neighbors”.

Finish 1This quote from a Robert Frost poem is good advice for anyone keeping horses.

Good fences contain animals safely, facilitate pasture rotation, reduce landowner liability, and serve as a visible reminder of property lines.

Fencing options are endless for horses.

Horse owners need to remember that nothing is “fool proof” with a horse.

The goal needs to include the advantage of safety, low maintenance and affordability.

Horse fencing should be visible.

Finish 2High tensile wire including barbed wire are still the most common types of horse fencing being installed today.

For horses, wire can be unforgiving and hard to see which can wreak havoc on your horses.

Humans have a hard time seeing wire fencing, so why would we expect our horse to see it any better?

A horse’s pasture is intended to be his safe place; cutting injuries from wire fences can be drastically reduced.

Finishline Horse Fencing (Bayco) has been containing horses around the world for over fifty years.

Designed by the engineers at Bayer in conjunction with large animal vets, Finishline Fencing came to market to provide a safe, maintenance free alternative to traditional horse fencing.

Finish 3Finishline Fencing 4mm is available on 2,000ft Spools with 1,250 lbs. of tensile strength.

Finishline XL 5mm is now available offering higher tensile strength of 1,850 lbs. and greater visibility on a 2,000ft coil.

Finishline is not affected by temperature changes which means no retentioning is required, and the added UV protection delivers decades of performance.

Finishline is best known for its easy installation.

This is especially important during these times of labor shortages.

Use the post system of your choice as Finishline is compatible with all post types.

Don’t Let Your Fence Stress You Out, let Pro-Fence help

A quality fence can be a significant investment but is a necessary part of having an animal.

Profence 11Compromising on the quality of materials or proper installation will only lead to stress, disappointment and regret.

Nobody wants to find that their animals are missing or get a phone call that they have strayed to the neighbor’s house or are out on the road.

Sometimes going through the process of having a fence installed can be just as stressful.

ProFence LLC brings a level of professionalism to the fencing industry that will make the process as stress-free as possible.

ProFence 22Our friendly staff takes your calls, emails, or website inquiries, and our estimators will discuss your needs and provide you with a free estimate.

Prior to your installation, we will work through scheduling and discuss what to expect next.

When the crew arrives on-site, they will review what is to be done and make any necessary adjustments.

You can then relax, sit back and watch how it’s done.

ProFence LLC uses quality materials resulting a fence that is sturdy and will last for years to come.

We are so confident in our fence installations that we offer a 10 Year Warranty.
