    What kind of fence post does everyone use? I cut my own locust poles for most of my fence line and used a few old post as well. Does anyone use the Barbed T-Post for their goats? Are they strong enough?
    Thinking about useing them with regular goat wire and then running 4 strands of electric wire on the inside to keep goats off the fence. This is what my other fence is but doesnt have the metal T-Post but wooden post.

    I use the heavier U-post with 5-high cattle panels. Posts are every eight feet and I attach the panels with U-post insulator clips. This makes it a bit more portable so we can rotate locations.
    Keeps my nigerians in quite well, although one of the newborn bucklings was so tiny that he could fit right throught the 4" squares of the fence!
