My west boundary, along the county road. The brush clearing and the 100 year old fence removal was quite time consuming. But, I finally got it opened up, my bottom strand pulled, and set posts four days ago. I rented the post driver implement for the skid steer. Had a buddy hold two levels, and drove the pipe 5 foot deep for every post. First time doing it that way, and I like it!

Corner, at the creek, just for the purpose of having a corner to hold the future water gap.

In line brace. 6 strands of barb wire will come off each direction. Yeah, it's over built, but I build fences one time.

Line posts, about every 100' +/-. Put kickers on all those as well. This fence should never lean. The kickers go into tree line and are still well off the current county road. They will never be in the way of hay production.

Looks good. I like metal fence posts. Our inherited ranch fences all fell over with a grass fire thanks cedar posts.

Outdoor wood construction is stupid.

Bois d' arc is the most durable there is around here. And even it has a life span.

2 7/8"

Traded a guy in 2019 for it. I had to work up loads and make ammo for four rifles. But I got a whole bunch of it, and 2 3/8"

It’s still cheaper than having somebody do it by far but I’ve spent more than I cared to on pipe for my front entrance and fence. Stuff has gone crazy.

Always welcome.

I like to build one time, and never touch it again.

Do it right the first time and be done with it.
It's like power tools the most expensive tool you own is the one you buy twice. Meaning you went cheap on the first one.

Pretty much most of the schooling is in the pics. Corners, in-line, and line posts if you want line posts. I have built many runs with no line posts.

I try to keep braces 300' apart, or less.

T-posts every 10'

Where did you rent the post driver and how much was it? I have a fencing project coming up and the last one we did them with a 3 point auger which was a pain.

Yep. Line post are just for holding wire. All the strength of a fence is in the corner braces.

Looks as if you did it right the first time. Should outlast you.

United Rentals in Greenville.

Said they've only owned the implement for a little over a year. It is constantly rented out, and everyone loves it.

Yikes.... I paid .83 cents last time I got them from Vitz Metals. I would hate to hear what they are charging now for used 2 3/8" pipe....

Let me know Thumper and I'll join you. Watching Garvey work is fun, especially when having a beer.

The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the captain did too
