    I'm going to be building a 50' x 60' fence for a couple of goats, and I'm having an argument with my boyfriend. He thinks we need a brace on every corner, but I think a stout wood post to back up the t-posts will be enough for such a short fence. Anyone have experience either way?

    what sort of fence..? Wire? then you'll need a stay to be a ble to straing them.

    I'd go with the braces. The people who did the fencing on our place(before we moved here) did on some and did not on others. We have had to fix the corners they did not brace. Some they braced incorrectly...we had to redo those as well. Better to over do it on sturdiness in my opinion.
