We're going to fence in our entire property this spring. Currently we have only our pastures fenced in. We're considering using tensile wire fencing on the sides and back of our property (chargeable) with 4 board wood fencing across the front for its curb appeal. We like this because it's the least expensive, safest, and strongest fencing we have found for the kinds of critters we have-- goats, horses, beef cattle, pyrenees, grandkids . Any thoughts on why this may not be the best choice? I want to explore all sides of the equation before we spend all that money! What do you all use on your homestead as fencing to keep your animals in or tresspassers out? Field fencing? picket fencing? razor wire? barbed wire? Tell me about your choices and why please?
