How Durable Is Flex Fence® in Extreme Weather?
Flex Fence® has over 30 years of research and development to become a safer equestrian fence solution. We've selected the best polymer material for as many climate conditions as possible. The polymer contains maximum color and UV inhibitors that the polymer can absorb so your fence does not lose its color. Additionally, there's a mildew-resistant formula in the polymer that makes Flex Fence® a breeze to clean.
Even some of the most extreme temperatures and weather conditions Mother Nature can conjure up, Flex Fence® has stood the test. We have customers that have had their Flex Fecne® survive hurricanes, flooding, frigid temperatures, snowdrifts, wildfires, and more.
If you want to hear about a first-hand experience, we had a great podcast episode on Late Night Riders with Michelle Rumanes, from The Plaid Horse on preparing your horses, your property, and your mental toughness when it comes to natural disasters. Michelle's farm survived a California wildfire and a terrible flood that followed soon thereafter:
How to Prepare Yourself
As Earth's climates continue to change, we will need to start brainstorming about preparations to weather the storm. The fate of your beloved equine(s) may be in your hands.
With the advancement of technology in phone apps and satellite/weather forecasts, we can begin to plan at an earlier stage than in the past.
"It is always best to trust your instinct and do what you think is best at the moment. This doesn’t mean that you still shouldn’t be prepared. By simply talking about and thinking through your strategy in the event of a natural disaster, your horses and barn will have a better chance of coming through intact. As they say, chance favors the prepared mind!" - Andrea Wise, Founder of Horse Glam
