Nah, the rooster is actually one of my own mixes Australorp cross with something. I don't normally keep roosters but this fella is an exception cause of his looks and very kind nature.
Back fence is done!
Today, I found enough time to tack my dog mesh onto the posts. Even though all the posts are cemented in I decided to put in a corner post support (split log treated pine 1.8 m) held at the foot by a star picket.
I needed the extra strength in the last post because to get the wire taught I used my hand winch. What I did was attached the wire (down the other end) to a 6 foot star picket and then centrally pulled the picket with my winch until the whole 80 mtrs of dog mesh along the fence line was nice and tight. Then, I started from this end and tacked the mesh onto each post with large galvanised "U" staples 2.2 mils.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with how the rear fence turned out - it's taught, strong, and you'd be lucky to get a flat hand under the bottom run (no dog is pushing under this fence)

Thanks Stevo, but I'm feeling a bit stiff - just popped 2x Panadol before... All that hammering and unraveling wire really works the shoulders.Lookin good Mark. It must be keeping you fit aswell
