    Depends on the context!


    Please expand your question.


    (googled? eg here )

    It simply means there's a fence around the perimeter of the farm's land which ought to be stock proof. It doesn't mean that it is though!


    Estate agents use the term. They didn't use it on my property because there was no fence there, so I couldn't have moved here with animals like sheep in tow.


    I don't think Googling worked too well for GM this time!

    Thanks Dave. I am looking for land to put horses on and saw on several occasions the term ring fenced. I figured, it was a literal term, as you say, but when I searched online, websites kept coming up with banking references and I wondered if it were some sort of agricultural allowance/policy.
    I often get confused these days. It all started with Blackberry, when it stopped being fruit and became a computer. Seldom are words nowadays what they once were.

    G_M.
    As seen on land or farms for sale. Details sometimes say ring fenced.

    The only thing I can think to add is that fences for sheep may need some adaptation for horses; the typical two strands of barbed wire being undesirable.

    Ring-fenced could simply mean that the land is solely allocated for that purpose, rather than having a physical meaning?

    Yes, G_M thank you. It did not take me long to find ring fenced too but internet came up with two types of ring fencing. That was my confusion. Ring fencing as in literally a fence. But there were also references to ring fencing in banking. Farmland language is new to me and I am trying to get my head around, development uplift clauses, sporting rights, mineral rights, basic payment schemes, stewardship scheme etc. Just wondered if the referred ring fence was financial or a fence. I am sorry if my post annoyed you.

    Ah, G_M is one of our most useful contributors, just sometimes nursey misses out his gin or tablets, or she's wearing stockings, and then he gets a bit... playful. Give him the Saga magazine and turn on Countdown (LOUDLY) and he will be back this evening to his normal self.

    I have a "hobby" farm. I have no better guess than any of the above. It could mean the physical fence, it could means the land use is fixed and unchangeable, or it could be some abstract, obtuse definition we haven't thought of ...

    Where are we talking of; might be a more local term!

    DoaM has probably given the correct answer in this case.
