used in high-pressure locations such as corrals. Wooden board fences

Ardox Nails -
Spiral shank nails have up to twice the holding power of the same sized
smooth shank nails. Sold under the Ardox name, these nails are often
chosen for fencing applications such as joining wooden rails to posts.
Ardox nails have a smaller diameter shank than the same size smooth
shank nail, are made of a higher grade steel and their per-nail-cost
can be lower.
With quality materials and construction, wood fences are very
effective for horses. Sometimes chewing of the rails, especially the
top rail, is a problem
for both fence life and horse
health. An electric wire spaced away from the rail can reduce chewing.
If properly constructed all-wood fences can have low
costs. However, depending on climatic conditions, rotting will occur at
ground contact locations and on unpeeled rails limiting fence life.
