"Not only is the product well made and easy to put together, the service and planning you get is wonderful. We thoroughly recommend StockGuard Electric Fencing. Our horses and cattle are safe, the wildlife is able to enter and exit our property easily without getting caught in the fences. Cannot think why anyone would have wire fences when you can have electric fences that are safe for horses, stock and wildlife!"

"I love our StockGuard fencing. I have seen horses throw legs through fences and not even a hair missing, it's amazing. I will use nothing else but StockGuard now. We have been injury free on our property for 1.5 years. When we had wires we couldn't even go 5 months! Thanks StockGuard!! xx"

"I have StockGuard and love it.... it is so easy to install, packs a good boot so the horses respect it, if they DO get into it (I have one that will get caught in seemingly any fence, social thing she is) it will just stretch a bit (the little wires haven't broken so conductivity not compromised) and is so easy to fix up and get back to looking good as new and it's awesome quality and lasts... have previously used the cheaper tapes and they deteriorate.... the StockGuard seems to age very well."
“I also use StockGuard electric tape and I love it. We used timber posts with only 2 strands of StockGuard tape and that keeps 2 horses and a mini pony confined. Have had it for 12 months now, the 2 big horses got out once but they had literally ran through a section somehow, obviously terrified - no injuries though so I would rather that than wire. It is a wide tape so easily visible, strong but simple to set up and tighten. It does stretch sometimes and every now and then I can see a saggy bit where a horse or roo has hit it but I just turn the electric off and pull it tight.”
“second all this... love StockGuard. Have had legs through and no damage ever... trees fall on it with NO wires broken and it smooths out to look *almost* as good as new - AND I can do it all myself! No difficult strainers etc (although I love and recommend my rubber palmed gloves when pulling it through the tensioners... I get it tighter that way!)”
“And another one for StockGuard. I've had it now for close to 10 years and it still looks very good. Occasionally an insulator will break if a horse had a tangle, out comes a spare and the battery drill, and 5 minutes later it looks like new again. Never even find the culprit as there is never a mark on any of the horses.”
“Yes I have never had StockGuard tape break either. When my horses went through it, they were at a section where it joined at a corner post and both top and bottom strands were pulled out of the connector things at the corner (er, can't think of the actual name of those bits). It normally can't be pulled out but they did it somehow. The tape was stretched but it took a few min to thread back through and put back up, I didn't even replace it.”
“This is my second property where I have installed Stockguard Fencing. Wouldn't ever have anything else. Yes, it works with rugged horses too - they really respect it, even when it's switched off it still provides a healthy barrier. I have had two accidents - both during thunderstorms, the tape has been broken and trailed into the paddock, the horses have still been in their paddocks, not a mark on either of them.”
Sometimes something just has to give ...………… "We had some rain yesterday thankfully, was all a bit dry here and yes the fire was 2 paddocks down so a bit of a worry. I had my own horse get tangled up in the fencing a couple of weeks ago, he had it caught around the top of his hind leg and took out 4 fence posts trying to get out of it, eventually breaking the 4cm tape, huge forces needed to snap the tape I think. You will be happy to hear that he is now healing extremely well and I think there will be no scar at all. Had it been wire he most certainly would have had to have been put to sleep. My vet was highly impressed!"

"A tree came down and fell across our StockGuard fence. After we cleared the tree off we found nothing broken whatsoever, incredible, the fence just needed re-tensioning and we are back in business, great product."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you. We just received from you a wonderful box of fantastic StockGuard electric fencing. This is so appreciated and will certainly be put to very good use, we still have a lot of area unfenced after the flood. It will take a while to get it all fixed and electric fences are at the moment keeping our cattle safe. My husbands family settled on our farm 100 years ago this year, he is 66 and this is the biggest, fastest and dirtiest flood he has seen. It has done a lot of damage to the creek, roads and of course fences. No one was hurt, we got our cattle to high ground while it was still daylight and not flooded. Our hearts go out to the people who have lost so much. It is people like you that make life so great. Thank you, so very much."

"Hi guys thought I would drop you a line, have finally started putting up your fencing and am over the moon with it ....... it looks fantastic and is majorly user friendly to deal with. Thanks again, you have been fantastic to deal with and I will be recommending you to all my horsey mates."
Janita, Mt Barker, SA
"Hi guys, I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with your fencing product. It is so versatile, with great visibility yet still able to blend into the surrounding environment. The colours of the bi-polar, being green and brown, blend with the surrounding environment, unlike the traditional white or orange tape, yet are highly visible because of the width of the tape. We have found the bi-polar fencing just perfect for us as we get really dry and really, really wet here and we have no problems with earthing, which means the fence is always working at its best! The horses highly respect the fencing, we don't lose any manes or tails to the "good old barb wire" anymore! Thanks for having such a great product."
Tellena, Gordonvale, Qld
"We love the fence since we put it up we have had no fence injuries at all even though one foal rolled right into it and a mare kicked out and got her leg through. All the fence did was stretch, not even a bit of hair out of place on the horses. I also have it around the stallion paddocks and they respect the fence so much I don't have any problems at all. Fantastic fencing."
Gabby, Oakford, WA
"StockGuard fencing was recommended to me as I have a horse that insists on getting his leg caught in the fence and injuring himself. Initially we were going to build one paddock, as my husband wasn't confident it would keep the horses in and the cows out. We have been so happy with the fencing (and no more injuries and no animals in the wrong paddocks) and because the StockGuard fencing is so easy and quick to install, we are in the process of removing all other types of fencing (both electric and non-electric) we had used and are replacing it with StockGuard fencing. I cannot fault the product, or the sale and service. David is very helpful in calculating how much each part is required and it is put onto transport without delay."
