    Default 1/2 mile of fence

    I have been cleaning out about 1/2 mile of fence row on our place. The old fence was put built in about 1970 and trees had grown through the old fence to the point that they were about 1-2' apart on the entire fence row. There was a drainage ditch running next to the old fence row that was almost completely filled up which needed to be cleaned out as well. It now has a new 4 strand barb wire fence on this side of the property.

    Nice. Those corners are definitely NOT going anywhere.

    Very nice. It looks to be perfectly straight. What animals are you enclosing in there?

    Nice job - fencing is always "hard yakka"
    Interesting way you've braced the strainers/corners & run the wire rathet tensioners.

    No rocks. This is bottom land. In some places after you get down about 5' there is a lot of small pea gravel. The largest is probably about 1-1.5"
