Fence Pigs Will Fix
Our land is not straight, level nor plumb. Rather it waves up and down the slopes of the mountain. That tends to make fencing a bit of a challenge. Fence lines like to be pulled tight to straight lines, especially the high tensile fencing I favor for its longevity.
In the photo above the land waves along the fence line. Over time the pigs will nose rocks and dirt to fill in that low spot creating a terrace. For this reason we fence along the contours of the land. This way the natural forces of nose, hoof, wind, water and frost build level areas in our paddocks so that gradually our land imitates the nicely terraced mountains of Asia and Central America. It’s a slow process. We’re patient people.
