We buy ours from a man who comes round with a van.

Yes, a man came round our place with a van last year. He had all sorts of "second hand" gates, hurdles, equipment, tools, generators etc in the back. Now I'm sure your chap is genuine Mowhaugh, but it does pay to be careful I guess!  ;)

I get mine from our local agri merchant, bit disappointed in the last ones, they are made by iae and don't turn easily when joined together. I use mine a lot as fences and it is a nuisance if the don't open easily.

Weve bought from highland supplies in Turriff. Phillips sell them too but are a bit more expensive. Delgarno chemicals at Inverurie will deliver but obviously charge and they will only come if he has a full load for your area.

I would be working on the basis that anyone selling hurdles out the back of a van has nicked them from somewhere or got them from someone that did, and wouldn't be buying anything...


We've bought the ones we have at farm roups (sales) locally.

I agree - anyone selling a variety of farming items and generators etc out of the back of a van smacks of nicked goods so definitely be wary of buying from such sources.

I have always found Countrywide stores to be a good bet when buying hurdles and they often have some good offers.  The hurdles are very good quality too.

I have discovered that no matter how many hurdles you have you could always do with just a few more  :thinking:   is it a conspiracy?

Does anyone know of anything that sticks the bars back onto the uprights short of soldering/welding, was thinking of that no more nails stuff, if all the loose barred ones were mended we would have more usable ones!

There is a chap who advertises in either the Scot Ads or the Press and Journal. I think he is over Turriff way. I think he buys them down south and then sells them on. They are new and pretty reasonably priced. Sorry I don't have the number to hand.
Our holding has Anglo Nubian and British Toggenburg goats, Gotland sheep, Franconian Geese, Blue Swedish ducks, a whole load of mongrel hens and two semi-feral children.

Can agree to a certain extent however we do have a firm in the SW called The Farmers Friend they ahve been in business for many years and they sell out of the back of a van nowadays mainly at markets however in days gone by the did come to the farm yard for regulars.

But would agree with just a white van man turing up out of the blue as being suspect goods.
