i just got back from paying ($3.17 a piece ) for 6 ft. T- posts. i am fencing a total of +/-12 more acres, for goats and horses. in addition to the main field which is fenced with woven wire and electric, i'll have the additional pasture enclosed in 4 strands of electric. in the new part is a small, meandering creek, with high banks on most of both sides. i've fenced over little creeks before and it was the bane of my life. broke my heart more than once. but i have this creek running through the land, and my animals need water, and it's ridiculous to have then fenced away from the water. the only sensible thing to do is try and fence across it. it was also always the weakest place where the goats and dogs got out on a regular basis. hence the broken heart. i will listen to any and all ideas.
