    Mule corner post question

    How do you attach the fencing (in our case Electrobraid) to the Mule corner post? I have seen ads say you do not need insulators. Are there holes drilled in it?

    Additionally, does anyone know if...

    Thanks for all the responses, evereyone! I do know I can convert them all to tail straps, but IME, some brands just aren't cut to stay in place that way, no matter how well they fit the horse.

    Other than Amigo and Rambo, are there any other brands of horse blankets that come with tail straps instead of leg straps?

    I was going to suggest insulated buckets, too. They are way more durable and more effective at much lower temps than the cozies. Mine are only 6 or so years old and have already survived one move. ...

    I would cap them. I definitely would assume they could have the same danger as a regular t-post, though I wonder if the flexibility maybe lowers the chance of injury slightly. I still wouldn't...

    I don't think that would be all that difficult, though I certainly haven't used these. If the ground isn't relatively level, the fence really shouldn't be level either, though. When we installed our...

    I'm also wondering how you would remove them. We use a t-post jack to remove them here, and I don't see how that would work with these.

    Thank you so much! This is really helpful. I'm wondering if we might just do Electrobraid in the front. We did it on our current farm (5' tall fence, 4 strands, white vinyl t-post covers with wood...
  10. Anyone used the "Timeless T-Posts" for horse fencing?

    I'm curious to know if anyone has used these posts. I'm wondering how easy they are to pound in compared to regular t-posts, as they seem to be flexible. Of course there's an instructional video on...

    I would consider board fencing, but I prefer Centaur over that because IME it is a lot less maintenance. That's why I ruled it out... more maintenance than cost, especially if you want a white or...
