hurleyjd":2yc941ws said:I should not have critequed your fence corners if you like them then so do I. Here is a website that explains fencing. I use this method when I build fence. Only difference is I use 3" O. D. pipe set 4 foot deep in 12 inch diameter holes with at least three 80 lbs of sackcrete mixed and poured. I weld braces top and bottom from the same dia. pipe with the bottom brace about 12 inches from the ground. The top brace will be the same height as my fence. All of my line fences are 58 inches high. I then cut and weld the bull panels in place. These are panels that are welded together and with a 6 inch grid from 7/'16 dia. rods. I always use the three post method in each line for the corners. I also use the 7 foot tee post. 6 wires on all line fences.
I have fences on the public roads and I try to have each fence section with the three pull posts in the corner three post setup every 250 feet or so. The reason, if a drunk runs through the fence then I do not have to take the whole section up to tighten and repair. I have abpout 300 acres fenced in this manner with cross fences so I have 25 to 30 acres in each pasture.Moocow11":3stflw5d said:and how much fence do you attach to these corners??

The only ones I can think of in Stuarts Draft that I've seen contained in this manner were dairy cows. Different ballgame.
My biggest problem with polywire is that deer seem to like to rip and tear it all over the place. Maybe I need to find some of that deer-repellant polywire.

Additionally, here in Alabama, the State code determines what is considered a fence "built to code". Yes there are a lot of fences which I see everyday that could open up the owner to a lawsuit or maybe even being liabile if someone has an accident or gets hurt.
