Hi I was wondering what the recommeded hight for a fence is? I would like to construct a new fence in summer and I was wondering because my horse currently lives in a pasture with a four foot high electric fence. He jumped over it a few days ago because we had lots of snow and the first wire was 3 feet from the ground. He never got out before that and he dosnt test the fence. He will mature to be about 15 hands. What hight would you recommend for him? He's an american paint horse. I was also wondering how deep the posts should be set into the ground? We have rich black farming soil where we live.
PS I know I've asked this question before- but I would like fence measurments in feet.
