I've been trying to find a nice fence design for the road frontage on my property. The fence will will be holding goats, sheep, and a couple of donkeys. I'm going to make it about 4.5 feet high. I have cedar posts, but need to buy the other wood. Any help from you guys would be very much appreciated. What kind of wood, and what size boards? What kind of coating for the posts and boards? How far apart should the posts be?
