Goat Fencing on Ledgy Land = Hard Work
Success! The first post is cemented in.
The braces are just a support until the cement dries
As you can see in this second hole there is not much topsoil at this spot before you hit ledge.
Setting out the white line posts is a lot easier than installing all the corner posts. The tension from the electric fence requires really solid corner posts. The line posts, between corners don't need to be as solid.
Mixing the cement in the hot, hot sun!
Shoveling the cement over the rebar
The 3rd post had to be installed directly on the ledge. Don added a pin that goes into the ledge and up into the post and the the + of pins in the post like the other. Plus he drilled four other pins down into the ledge. The cement will be poured over all to those pins up onto the post. The wooden frame is just a form to hold the cement and will be removed later.
