Fences are very useful for pens in Minecraft. They have the unique property of being 1.5 blocks tall, too high for most mobs to jump with a jump boost, but still appear to be 1 block tall so they fit in with other blocks. Fences come in two types: Nether Brick and Wood. You can craft it out of any type of wood, and all wood looks different. Each is made out of its respective material. Nether Brick Fences are more efficient, but more expensive as well, and have the bonus of being fireproof. These can also be found naturally in Nether Fortresses, while the normal type of fence can be found in NPC Villages (butcher shops, to be specific).
