I'm going to be putting up field fencing, with an electric strand on top to keep the horses from leaning onto/over the fence.
I like field fencing. It's neat, clean, and doesn't cost a boatload. I'm going to use a combination of wood posts and metal t-posts, to help keep the expenses down.
Wooden posts every 40 feet, with t-posts in between every 10 feet.
Field fencing costs about $150.00 for a roll of 330 feet. I figure for the rest of my acreage, the rolls of fencing alone are going to cost me $1,500.00.
Add in the wood posts, t-posts, fence clips, t-post caps, staples, hot wire insulators, hot wire, and a solar fence charger, and it's going to cost me quite a bit of money. Still cheaper than all wood fencing, though!
