when checking fencing for live stock you NEED to say its for a stallion. they can get volitile and fight out of a fence. you want something he can body slam and hold up. no climb will not. imagine you are putting a unhandle wild mustang in it. they dont know fencing and will run fill force into it or go over. Studs can do VERY stupid things to get to mares including forgetting to respect fencing.
also THIS right here is why wire fencing and t posts are NOT enough for most horses much less a stallion. note horse was fine
THIS is why you want a 6ft MINIMUM!
another example by a stallion
your fence needs to be able to withstand THIS type of behavior.
not saying the stallion WILL behave this way but they all CAN and sometimes do. you HAVE to be prepared for the worst. if that stud gets loose he can attack and kill geldings, go after people on horse back and breed mares that are NOT meant for him. he can cause ALOT of damage.
i will tell you as a mare owner who boarded with stallions i was always worried. one day the owners young stud got away from her and attacked a horse statue and DESTROYED IT because he thought it was another stallion! she has 5 stallions! what if i was walking my mare? what if he attacked me and hurt my mare because she was not in season? what if he bred her and i had to pay a vet to lute her? or worst what if it happened when i was not there and he got to my mare and no one told me?
stallions NEED proper containment. they CAN be just as dangerous as bulls. again there are some fantastic studs who behave better than some geldings, but they are animals ruled by their hormones. you HAVE to be ready.
now if you want to use the remaining t posts i would get livestock panels like i posted in the picture. the t posts will help them stay in place. again TALL livestock pannels.
here are some examples of stallion safe fencing.
