  1. Good advice to where to get paint. I paid $23 a gallon at home depot vs $30 for 5 gallon at tractor supply. Now to find wood for $1 each…

  2. Fun fact: the name “ranch hand” originated in the old west days when the less experienced cowboys were hired and had to prove they were worth their salt by milking the bulls with their bare hands

  3. I will make it myself this week I think. Just got instructions from woodprix website and I'm ready for do it 😀

  4. If you want to build it yourself just google for woodprix. I know you will find good solutions for all your ideas.

  5. Should the boards be 
    attached to the inside of the fence? The horse side. For added strength when the horse leans on it. I have some horse fence building in my near future and am trying to plan my project. Thanks. Really like the fence, and have decided on the same style.

  6. Your paint looks a lot like used motor oil, that’s what we use on our fences it works great preserves The wood for almost ever and is free.

  7. To avoid splitting the ends I drill and countersink my boards then screw them on with #10 3 inch screws. To paint I have a quad and trailer with a sprayer and a generator. My daughter drives while I follow behind and spray, works quite well

  8. If you have a tracker but no auger you can sometimes hire a post rammer and point your post like a spear and ram your posts they don't need concrete if they are rammed

  9. Thank you for covering the basics! There are so many new comers to the Agricultural Industry that need some good basic guidance.

  10. Just for future reference, I wouldn't use concrete on a wood post. It'll hold water and rot the posts faster. Just throw some gravel in the bottom of the hole for drainage.
