I was looking at something (probably real estate), and the article or the description mentioned something called "Kentucky fencing." What is that exactly? Is it 3-board or 4-board fencing? Is it white in color, black, or unstained wood? Is it a well known type of fence that is generally used in Kentucky because of horses?

Thanks.

Well, our neighborhood association dictates that we use "Kentucky style fence" which it defines as three-board, painted black, similar to this but in black:



Not sure if that is a standard name for that style of fence, or a more generic term that can be defined as it applies. Maybe someone else can offer more insight!

ETA: Many of the nearby horse farms seem to use a 4-board fence.

Ok - it is too late to edit my last post...but once I got home I realized that our neighborhood uses 4-board fences, not 3-board, which they call "Kentucky style fencing". Ooops!

I think it can be 3 or 4 board and I have seen white and black, although black is easier to keep up.

Thanks to one and all! Ah Ha! There really is a style of fence called "Kentucky fence." The next time I see that phrase as part of a lot's description, I'll know what they mean.

That cattle fence, a bull will bust through a wooden fence like it's not there, cattle fence has give and it's a lot harder to break steel than wood. In fact I've seen it stop cars.
