Where can I find plastic posts, or other alternatives to treated lumber, for building horse fences?
S.L.OhioAnswer: Below are three Web site listings for sources of vinyl horse fences and posts. The phone number is listed on each company’s information.There is also information about a post wrap that might be of interest. It would allow you to use untreated posts instead of treated posts. I am unsure of the availability of native wood posts in your area, but ATTRA’s Organic Alternatives to Treated Lumber includes information and an enclosure discussing native wood species best for posts.
