    Pasture Fence

    Hey all!
    In my already boring schedule, I'm planning on building some fence before winter really gets here, hopefully.

    My question involves separating horses and cows by the fence.

    I'm planning on putting up no-climb horse fence to have my horses in their own pasture vs sharing with the cows. They will be on their own side of the fence. Wondering if anyone has experience with this and which side of the posts would be better for the no climb.

    This is an example of what I plan on building.

    I'm predicting 5" wood posts on 10ft spacing with a single strand top wire above the 48" no climb.

    Which side would you put the no climb on? I'm thinking the side with the cows as they are more likely to push on it.
    My runs are 1700 ft and 700 ft.

    Thatís the side I would do too, but why not put a couple more strands of electric to eliminate any pushing (I hate that).

    I may end up putting a couple strands of hot on the cattle site, but my biggest concern was which side I'd put the no climb on. I can run hot wire real fast after everything else is done.

The no climb is designed to keep the horses hoof from getting stuck, and with it on the opposite side, the horse could paw and get it stuck between the post and fence.

    Hadn't even been thinking that way. Now I'll just have to get the hot wires on the cattle side sooner.

    I guess that would help prevent the 1000 pound termites (horse) from chewing on the posts

    Would recommend posts on the cow side. If you put the posts on the horse side they will gradually push the fencing out of the staples. If you put the posts on the cow side with the fence on the horse side, the horses will push the fence into the posts and not challenge the staples. The horses are likely to challenge the fence more than the cows.

    .....and you'll end up with fencing on both sides of the posts!
