FAQs

What is Cameo horse fencing?

Cameo horse fencing is a monofilament line – an extrusion of nylon based material. White in color to provide an excellent sightline. It was designed to be a safe, affordable and easy to install fence for the DIY horse owner.

 

Why buy Cameo horse fencing?

Cameo horse fencing is safe for your horses. It has strength -1200 lbs breaking per line – and flexibility.  The line will flex up to 20% before breaking. The flexibility eliminates the “cheese cutter effect” your horse experiences from high tensile fencing. 

Cameo horse fencing is extremely cost effective. Especially when you don’t have the vet bills, the care and attention, or anguish, of dealing with a horse injury from other fencing styles.

At Cameo Fence LLC, we made the installation of monofilament fencing a breeze. The one way vise hardware holds the correct tension on the line.  As opposed to coated high tensile or wire mesh fencing, Cameo horse fencing is truly a DIY product!

What posts do I use with Cameo horse fencing?

Cameo horse fencing works with your choice of line post - wood, t-posts, composite or vinyl posts.

Your choice depends on the look you want, your budget, ground conditions and labor to install. I have often said if I could come up with a fence that didn’t need posts…….. But we need posts. At Cameo Fence, LLC we sell round vinyl posts, perfect for the Cameo Line, however, you can buy other materials locally. We do sell all the hardware and supplies needed to install on any post.

 

Do I have to run a line of electric in combination with Cameo horse fencing?

The quick answer is no. Five to six lines of Cameo with wood line posts spaced 8 to 10 ft. apart will do the job.

 

However, there are advantages, with at least one line of electric, to consider.

  1. Posts can be now spaced up to 16 ft. apart – a cost and labor saving
  2. The choice of posts opens up to include the options of t-post, composite or vinyl
  3. An energized line teaches your horse to stay off the fence
  4. The fence will work to contain other livestock, cattle, sheep, goats

 

How many lines should I run?

5 to 6 lines of Cameo for a fence that does not have an energized line.

4 to 5 lines in a combination of Cameo and Maxi Grunt Electric

 

What do I need to know about a Fence Energizer?

Cyclops Fence Energizers

  • Plug In and Battery Models.
  • Strongest Plug In and Battery Energizers available
  • Beats New Zealand imports on price and performance
  • Strongest Lightning protection in the world
  • Built with the Best Quality parts
  • Built in the USA

 

Lightning is the number one enemy of fence energizers. Cyclops energizers have more lightning protection over 5000 joules of lightning protection in each fence energizer than any other energizer in the world.

Don’t be fooled by mileage ratings that other energizers advertise. Always go by joule power rating. We have found over the years that most energizers when tested are at least 2 to 3 joules less than what the energizer is advertised as. All Cyclops energizers are the joule power rating that we advertise. For example, the 8 joule Cyclops Brute model actually stores 9.86 joules. All Cyclops energizers have a high efficiency transformer and are modular design for easy repair.

Low Impedance means it will maintain a controlling voltage even loaded with heavy vegetation.

All Cyclops energizers output a wide pulse which puts the hurt in the pulse. 10 watt solar pane – 50% stronger than the competition.
