Also - some people just don't like being watched from the road. I knew a trainer who had a huge privacy fence up around her barn - due to its close proximity to the local jail!
Oh wow! So besides the building costs, its actually something that is practical! Thanks so much! I really appreciate it! I also asked because hubby and I are looking into bringing my guy home, and with the kids, and the dogs around, I was thinking how nice a privacy fence would be, but worried about its practicality! Thanks again!

Turned out to be really nice people too.
