    The man across the field from us (my husband's 1st cousin) does. He has a sizable herd that he uses for meat. I love to see the new calfs - beautiful things. He uses tall round posts (probably 8" diameter) and 6 ft. high tensile fencing...

    Quote:I have a 5ft high tensile fence,i reckon the big feller could go right through it but never had a problem with him being high strung.

    I would really like to have some. I think their one of the most beautiful animals, and not to mention the fact that the babies are adorable!!
