New fence panels
« on: December 19, 2015, 02:26:33 pm »
I have just got some new fence panels to make into wind breaks but the panels are newly dipped and are a very bright orange. Do anyone think that if the sheep nibbled the dip could be poisonous.

 Thanks. I only got the panels today.... Have emailed supplier. Hope to hear back soon.. Also will leave them out in the wind and rain for a few days.

I think they will be OK as the bright orange wood treatments are mostly water based, and I can't imagine that would be too toxic... but maybe wait for the suppliers opinion.
