Tough GRIT Episode 4: Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

In this episode of Tough GRIT, two strong women battle to build beefy braces and hang level gates. 

When you travel any country road, you're likely to see plenty of fences with sagging wires or mesh so loose even the most timid livestock will laugh at them. Fence failures are common, and most of time they are caused by a corner or end post being pulled from the ground by the tension of the wires themselves. Well-braced fence ends and corners may not seem like rocket science, but you need to consider a little physics or follow expert advice to get them right. Learn more in this episode of Tough GRIT.
