Fighting in the herd, lack of food, and sheer bordome of a small area. I understand there are exceptions.

He NEVER tried jumping over a four foot fence, it was just because the snow "shrunk" the fence to three feet, and
he was hungry because he had finished his hay(by that, I don't mean that I am starving him
He's a good weight). He hasnt jumped out anymore, in fact, he's petrified of wire-even non electrical!
don't know why, but he's always been like that.
His pasture is two acres so lots of room for him to exercise so that's not a problem.
Phly, You mean that you can sink fence posts only 2 feet? I thought you need to sink them about 2.5-3 feet?
The fence im want to make is going to be 4.5 - 5 feet high, is that enough?
