How to Build a Fence So Horses Can Drink From a Pond But Not Go Across the Pond
- 1). Mark the fence posts so that you will know when they have been sunk deep enough into the ground, about 1/3 of the post should be sunk.
- 2). Lay the posts out on the bank in even intervals, about 4 or 5 feet apart. This will help you keep the post spacing even as you go since you can't mark the ground.
- 3). Sink the fence posts into the ground by hitting them with a sledge hammer. One person will need to hold the post upright while another hits the post until it can stand on its own.
- 4). Attach the wire mesh to the first posts with fence wire. Make sure that the fence wire is not too tight around the post; the fence will need to be able to move up and down.
- 5). Secure your air-tight floater to the wire mesh so that some of the fence will remain underwater and the rest will be above water.
- 6). Repeat the process at the next post and continue until you reach the other side of the bank.
