I am at dead end with Dh on how to fence a part of our land. Everything I come up with Dh shoots down and tells me when stream is swollen from heavy rain Whatever I suggest , will be torn down by the rushing water and debris. We have 7 acres with multiple turnouts. Front turnout is DONE with post and board on front and 5 strand of spur poly covered high tensil on back. WITH a top and bottom electric line. NO issues here it is about 3/4 of an acre. No grass with a downward slant. We put 2 round bales in it and the 3 horses eat the 2 roundbales in about 12/14 days. Obviously not enough room and no grass. 2 years ago we finished right down to the big cattle gates front and back. totally done. In the back. we have the front of the back done with the wooden posts as in the front pasture. 3 strands of electrifies high tensil no issues there. But the back of my 2 back pastures backs up to a small mountain and stream. In years past with different horses I had one in each of the pastures with NOOO issues ever. We are finishing up the back pasture, going from the easy t posts to the more substantial wood posts and spur poly covered high tensil fencing. We feel we can do this now that we have FINALLY conquered our deer issue. We have stopped ALL fencing about 5 ft from stream as it is in a ravine and when we have summer storms it rages and becomes swollen with runoff. Occasionally it has jumped the ravine and flooded the back pasture. On the OTHER side of the stream we own about 2.5 acres that is a hilly rocky slope. Dh SAYS he isn't saying forget ot but he can't come up with ANY way to solve the stream "issue". He is not prone to quick decisions. It took us roughly 4 years to figure out how to handle a section of the front that was so rocky we could only dig down about 8". Finally mastered that by making cement boxes above ground for the posts. SO HOW does one handle this? TIA , we've been here 8 years and while I don't think we will ever be "done" I'd like to claim the other 2 acres. Currently they are just sitting there.
