    This is the safest horse fencing there is. I put the electric on 5 inch extenders, top and middle of the fence because I have one who loves to drag down mesh. Unlike the picture, I fasten the mesh to the boards and the posts so she can't just walk up and put one big old foot on it and squish.

    Post and rail will get chewed to toothpicks by the beavers, er horses, if it's not electrified.

    Most of the post and rail I've seen around here looks like this:

    The lumber is here! The lumber is here! A few of the bottom rows need to be tossed, and the exteriors of the bundles are weathered, but inside they are nice and protected and not rotten or anything. Now comes the hard work!

    Does anyone have any photos of their fence corners if they have boards on the inside? Or does anyone have photos or suggestions of how to attach the boards on 135 degree angled corner?

    The fence building has begun. After consulting with a few different local experts, we opted to dig holes with a jack hammer (dig as far down as we can with shovels and a polaski, then hit the durapan and bedrock with the hammer). Oh mylanta! It is HARD work. We got 10 holes done this weekend...about 50 more to go for the upper half of our property

    But I have to say, it is sturdy and it looks beautiful. We are going to be putting 1 more rail up and lopping the tops of the post off and adding a horizontal rail "cap"

    KarlieJaye- On the corners I bring one end outside the corner post and the other side, inside the post. It works great and looks more professional. I have 4x4 posts and 1x6 corral boards for the rails. I have the 4x4's 8 ft apart and the corral boards are 16ft in length. Works great! I also have 6x6 posts and 2x6 rails dividing paddocks but they pay about as much attention to the 1x6 as they do to the 2x6. I also use 6x6 at the gates for more reinforcement.
