    Recycled Rubber Fencing

    Several years back I rode with a family on their farm who had rubber fencing. Basically it was strips of rubber (tire?!) that was stretched taught and nailed to wooden posts. Seemed to be an extremely safe and cheap way to fence in the horses, provided you replace before dry rot. Does anyone have any information on this? Any thoughts? Thanks for looking!

    I haven't seen used tires but I have seen conveyor belting used. It is good but hard to find.

    I have also seen whole tyres used. Pity I haven't got a pic of it.

    Wow - conveyer belting. It might have been that. Didn't seem thick enough for tires. If anyone finds a pic, PLEASE post! I'd love to get some ideas.....!!

    We used this in our "baby" pastures, it is known as band fencing around here. I loved it, and it kept the babies safe.

    I am trying to talk my BO into it as we have miles of board that is always needing to be replaced. The posts are soild, and it makes sense to me.

    I'm glad to hear that others have heard about this fence. Band fencing, good to know.

    Please post up more info as it comes along!

    The farm Raps came from in Tennessee had rubber strap fencing. Great stuff, but Ive never been able to find a supplier.
