T post deeper than the normal depth??????/

Hey guys, I bought 6 ft t post when I actually wanted 5 ft'rs but they only had 6. I have already began to put then up, got one side up yesterday. I wanted to know if going down further past the point in which they are supposed to go which is a little further past the wide metal piece, Will that actually make the post not as sturdy. In case I confused ya, will going down say maybe another 6 inches to 1 ft to get the height 4 1/2 to 4 ft, will that make the post weaker or should it be just as sturdy or maybe more? I ask because I wasnt sure rather that wide piece being closest to the base of the hole would actually make it more sturdy.

Also, can the wire actually touch the ceramic insulators? I bought the ceramic ones for the corner wood post. Just trying to get an idea of the what not's, things to not let it touch or do so the fence won't be grounded out. Any other pointers will be greatly appreciated. I already know about the needing 3 ground rods, the distances, ect. Have been reading up on some. I did only get 3 ft rods though, per the guy who worked at TSC who owns horses.

Are you doing perimeter or cross fencing? Only asking because the goal height of 4 - 4 1/2 feet is a bit short for horse fencing.

I'm assuming cross fencing to answer your question because I am not just fencing like the perimter of my yard. I am doing an area that will be about 1,300 ft of total length. I have seen alot of folks have their top line height at about 3-3 1/2 feet, or chest height of the horse so 4 ft of post would be fine for that.
