I use wooden corner posts and these would be the support for the poly rope, but would these stand up to my young horse for permanent use?
Kayla J on Aug 15, 2014
Best Answer: In my opinion no. I used wooden corner posts with metal T posts with snap on brackets for a poly rope or electric wire fence for the long runs. These posts are not strong enough to withstand a horse running into them or pushing on them. I bought them to use for a electric fence to keep my dogs out of my fish pond.

I have two dogs who are able to get under our backyard picket fence. Would this electric fence deter them from attempting to flee? My plan is to put up an electric wire about 8-12 inches off the ground. Is this feasible?
A Fence Novice on May 5, 2014
Best Answer: I think the electric fence could work if:
- The wire(s) were run taught so the spacing was at a constant height, this is not an easy task...

The step in posts are NOT strong enough to use on the ends, they are VERY flexible.

The step in posts have only set positions and may not be the right spacing for your dogs.

Would these be suitable for semi permanent to permanent fencing also how do they function as line post through ridges and valleys?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2013
Best Answer: I've been using these for a few years, and I think they would work pretty well. There is no such thing as a maintenance free fence, of course! As Valerie T says, I wouldn't use them as my only property perimeter fence. My property is fairly flat, but I don't see uneven ground being an issue as long as you follow good fencing protocols. Using poly rope/twine rather than tape will reduce the wind pressure greatly on these posts.

Alternatively, I have a permanent fence made with the Sunguard 1/4" rod posts, which you drive in. Mine are in 12"-18" and I have had no issues in 5 years. They are a little cheaper, although not quite so easy to install.

I'm looking to put an electric fence around my chicken tractor and need a movable fence. would this work? and can I just use the polls listed here without the corner ones? (all i'm trying to keep out is raccoon's and small vermin) thanks!

Best Answer: Should work just fine for the straight runs and NOT a corner. Easy to "step" into the ground
