We can say that we have the safest Cattle guards on the market because the gaps between our cattle guard beams are 5″ at the top then narrow at the ground to 2″ which helps to keep animal’s hoof from getting caught or trapped. Other cattle guards allow the whole leg to go through and this could damage a horse or cow’s leg.
We know that some horse owners use cattle guards as a deterrent. Most deer or horse guards work by placing two – 8′ x 6′ cattle guards (assuming you want to secure an 8′ opening) in front of one another giving you 12′ x 8′ span (12′ front to back).
With our Reusable cattle guard forms you can make as many as you like to make it as wide or as long as you like.
