Fort Fence
What we refer to as our "Fort Fence" to go along with our military theme is another solution I came up with to use as a temporary fence when we need additional pasture area for The Babydolls. It goes up in a flash and we don't have to pound poles into rocky ground.

instructions for tripod lashing
TRIPOD LASHING


Construction:
  1. Figure out how many tripods you'll need to make. Each end of the "fence" will require three tripods. Between the ends will only need two because you will overlap the feedlot panels.
  2. Construct them using the TRIPOD LASHING (a pdf) instructions found above. I turned the T-poles upside down so there wouldn't be any sheep accidents between the sheep and the anchor plates on the T-poles.
  3. Line the tripods up spacing them approximately eight feet apart.
  4. Lay the feedlot panel against it hooking the top square over the center pole of each tripod and overlap each vertical end of the feedlot panel.
  5. If you need a "gate" then don't hook the feedlot panel over the center pole. Just lay it against the tripods and use the double-sided hooks to latch it.
