Fence and foxes in Minecraft

A fence in Minecraft helps players in creating barriers for their animals and farms. Here’s a guide on how to make a fence in Minecraft with wood and Nether bricks.

Although taming mobs such as foxes, cats, and horses is a great feeling for Minecraft players, they always have to remain cautious about their pets’ whereabouts. However, leads and fences can take care of that for you.

Fences help players in making farms for a wide range of domestic animals such as sheep, cows, and horses. These mobs cannot surpass a fence and you can keep them in any location you want. Accordingly, you won’t have to wander around the massive Overworld for the desired resources.

Here’s how to make a fence in Minecraft.
