No I don't Don, those are some big animals you have.

Just a word to the OP. The less square a piece of property is, regardless of square acreage, the more fence it will take. Measure every run as best you can. Think about fencing in 16 square feet. One is 4x4', the other is 16x1'. Same square footage, very different perimeters.

Nah. Pretty much everybody (but one) knew the deal, they were just letting me make the argument all by myself.

And I see you lack the ability to admit when you're wrong.

Yeah, I'm a smart person, and I know lots of things, but not everything. Turns out you are standing on this fencing island all by yourself. But, clearly you cannot see that.

Chainsaws? Not an expert. Used them every week since 1996. Doesn't mean I can always fix them. Worked with a guy on the FD that could though. And when he wanted to teach me stuff, I paid attention. House building? No, maybe you saw the house I'm building and you're calling me an expert. Thank you but I don't deserve it. Lots of things and house building methods I don't know. Side by sides? No, I've owned exactly two. The first one wasn't so good, the second one was highly recommended by lots of THF members and I paid attention, took their advice and mine is as good as they said theirs has been. Tools? Yes, used them tons, own tons also use them weekly. Blade sharpening? Nope, we have expert knife makers on this forum, they are also experts on sharpening. I own an 800 yard range, and have for 7 years, it is soon to be in my front yard. Maybe I know lots about it. Why wouldn't I?

Don't put your short comings in life at my feet. It is not my fault you feel insecure about yourself

What do you do when you find yourself at the bottom of a hole?
Quit digging.

Alright y, i am going to chime in and take both sides, i have goats. I installed 6 wire high tensile electric 5 years ago. The goats have never got out. It is small acerage. Here is what makes it work, Install properly, 3 ground rods driven 6 plus feet into the ground. Every other wire on the fence should be hot, the others should be connected directly to your ground field. Oversize the charger and do not use solar. I have a 100 mile charger on roughly 5 miles of wire (not fence but total wire). It packs a helluva punch. The goats are scared to death of it, The coyotes, hogs etc have all learned to stay the hell away.
I live on the property and the charger is in my shop so i can pop in there every day and hear it clicking like it should and know its all ok. It has gone out a few time (branches, broken insulators etc) but i caught it quickly. So having said all that i know that if i had large acreage and could not check the status regularly i would not go with an electric only system. I would go with 4 x 4 goat fence with a couple strands of barb on top and maybe even a single strand of electric low on the inside to give them a little reminder to stay back.

Brad you told fireman he was flat out wrong in your first post, he is not. And all this look me up and call me crap is pretty ridiculous. Both of you need a hug

Have each build half of the fence for JP, and see which part of the fence first lets a goat escape. THF members could have a pool on the winner and which goat makes the first successful escape.
