I've been in the fencing business for the past 20 years. I started working for farmers in Florida, fencing cow pastures and installing field fences to keep hogs away from the fields. I enjoy fencing, and there's plenty of horse owners in Central Florida and along the Gulf Coast, so I decided to expand into the residential market; and along came fencing for horses.
Funny thing, I'd never owned horses and didn't know much about them. Unaware then, I was headed for a crash-course in horse fencing, that's for sure! Sadly, also during this time, I started seeing all sorts of horse injuries caused by poor fencing materials and techniques.
One day a young lady called and wanted a horse fence installed. She said the materials were purchased and ready, and called it Cameo Fencing. Until that conversation, I had never heard of it before, but I’ve always enjoyed a challenge. One of my favorite quotes is from Secretariat, "He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing, He does not shy away from the sword." With that in mind, I assured her that we could install it. After that first installation of Cameo Fence, I fell in love with the product.
The crew had the fence up in record time; the ease of installation was incredible! No need to bother with 16 foot fence boards, lug 500- lb rolls of wire, or worry about stretching high-tensile. Instead, here I was with a fence of lightweight material that was highly-visible, extremely safe, and affordable. Brilliant! What’s more, I stepped back after completing the installation and thought, "Wow! I've never seen a fence that looked so clean".
Fast-forward five years, my family and I moved to the North Georgia Mountains and started another fencing company. This time a gentleman called needing a 25-acre pasture fenced for his horses - and also insisted on using Cameo Fencing! I think he was a bit surprised when I told him I was very familiar with it. Crazy coincidence? Here we were in a small-town USA, with a new company, crew, and customers; yet the reaction was the same. Cameo Fencing is the top pick for safe horse fencing!
We continued installing Cameo every time we had the opportunity. Soon, I got the phone call that changed my life; an unanticipated conversation with the founder of Cameo Fencing. The next day, I traveled to Virginia, had lunch with the founder, and made a deal to purchase her company. I was honored that she entrusted me to direct the Cameo legacy.
Even now, six years later, I am proud to share Cameo fencing with other horse owners. Cameo horse fencing is simple, safe, affordable, and always exceeds expectations.
