Blogging Tulsa Real Estate: Pipe and Cable Horse Fencing Installation

Pipe and Cable Horse Fencing Installation

Pipe and Cable Horse Fencing Installation

Here's a new pipe and cable horse fencing installation at Fleur de Lis Farm in Nowata, Oklahoma.

It was professionally installed and so I thought these photos may be helpful for someone who wants to weld their own fencing.  This installation is particularly well done.

In this case, the owner saved about $2 per foot by using lightly used pipe.  Overall, this installation was economical and provides safe and sturdy fencing for horses.

Pipe and Cable Horse Fencing Installation in Nowata, Oklahoma

This is a new installation by a company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

This fence was recently installed behind the house.  Eventually there will be a small barn and a horse here.

What I like especially about this fencing is that it does not disrupt the sight lines when looking out across the pastures.

12-foot gate installed with pipe and cable horse fencing

Here is a 12-foot gate.

Mane protectors where the cable connects to the posts

Heavy plastic sheathing covers the point at which the cable is attached to the post.  This is to protect the horses' manes.  The owner calls them Mane Protectors.

4-foot Walk-Through People Gate

This is the walk-through people gate.  The owner wishes it were just a bit wider because they did not leave quite enough width to drive the ZTR lawn mower through.  Notice the strong posts to either side of the gate and the mane protectors on the cable. 

In the distance you can see a corner post across the pasture where the pipe and cable meets a corner of barbed wire.

Eventually the barbed wire will be replaced when there is another chunk of change to put in another section of pipe and cable fencing.  This will be done before a horse is put in the pasture.  A barn is yet to be built before Pegasus comes to his new home.


Corner post near a gate installation

This corner post is where  the pipe and cable fencing meets a barbed wire fence.  There is a gate to the right and so the fencing had to be very sturdy.

The fence encloses an area of pasture behind the house

Thank you, Marisa. 

I remember how frustrating it was when we first bought our farm. 

We had no idea what the various options were and how to go about doing certain basic things that are second nature for people who grew up doing fencing alongside their parents and siblings.

Pictures say so much where words fail.

The fencing looks strong and sturdy, but still manages to blend with the landscape.  As you say, most of the time you don't know what the options are until it's too late because you are under the gun to make a quick decision!

Debbie, I've learned something new today!  And I like the looks of the fencing too.  Thanks for taking the time to share.

Rose, Lee, and Pamela:

Thanks for your nice remarks.  The owners will be delighted to hear that others are impressed with their selection.  They agonized over every detail and are still continuing to plan their next steps in the process. 

What I think is pretty cool, and you cannot see it in the photos, is that the fence zigs and zags on the house-side so that it is parallel to the back of the house where it needs to be parallel and then goes back to being parallel to the far fenceline once it gets away from the house.  That way it looks more visually appealing when you are standing in the yard.  This had to be done because the house sits at a slight angle to the back fenceline... kind of catawampus on the lot.

Moreover, the south fenceline sits right on the line where the surveyor split 5 of the north acres from the 35 south acres.  That way if the family ever has to move quickly the fenceline will be okay if they have to sell five acres and the house separate from the rest of the property.  (Their company relocation program will only pay for their moving costs if the house has no more than a 5-acre lot -- we had to split the 40 acres into two separate parcels when the property was purchased.)

A good fence for the farm I like the way how it is installed, very neat and clean. I can't wait to see your another project, a very nice and good fence so far. I can't wait to put this on my farm too for my goats.
