How would you fence this area?

I have an area that I need to re-fence and I am not sure the best way to do it. How many strands do you think I need across? Could I fence to the culverts on both sides and not go completely across the creek? What do you think?

Might be easier and make more sense to go above the culverts towards the road instead of in front of them???

I don't think we can. Fencing has to be so many feet from the road, going up and around the culverts would be too close to the right of way.

There is a farm near me that has a more pond shaped outlet next to the road like that. They have four or five strange electric (plastic coated high tensile). The fencing has a solid (corner type) post on either side of the water and across the water the wire have what are most easily described as posts that do not touch the ground (much small diameter wood though) that work as spacers for the wires.

Unless you're planning to fence to the culverts as well as that small area in between them, I'd say put the fence through the creek.

Water isn't an obstacle for horses, and they can get out onto the road even through that small area in between the culverts.

Do you HAVE to fence in the creek? Can you avoid it altogether, and just fence around it?

I'm no pro, but I agree with Speed Racer - I would absolutely fence through the creek if there's no other option. Not to mention who knows what the condition of the outside edges of those culverts is like. All things considered (edges of culvert, roadway, steep incline, etc.) it's just safer to prevent an issue before it even occurs.

The idea in AlwaysBehind's post is a good one. Would save post holes being dug underwater but also fence the area in question.

Awkward situation - let us know what you end up doing. Would love to see the finished product.

I agree with MissH, I'd be concerned with keeping my horses away from those metal edges. I'd fence across the creek.

It's a tricky one - good luck!
