    Lala, thank you for your comments our relationship is dead. I tried yesterday to start anew, it was they that were unnecissarily rude. It was him that initated repairing the fence, it has been ME that has done ages of work and research for him to literally THROW it back in my face so excuse me if by now I dont care what state our relationship is in.

    Thanks Newsfie, that is the fence we want to fit but that is what he just wont listen to. I am pointing to chicken mesh on his fence saying this is cheicken mesh, this is what the new fence will be made from and he is shaking his head saying no, its vermin proof!!!

    yes Hyacinth the electric fence etc is what we have done and yet still they come and we just dont want to have to worry about it, the good fence pictured is one we already have which was NEVER breached by the GSD's or Gigha, all we want to do is have it as a boundary, it is 1200mm high with an electric wire runing across the top and the mesh folded over by 300mm at the bottom to stop digging out. I say foxes are coming through cause we have seen and heard them. The roos are much happier 2 doors up on the quarry where no one touches them!

    I thank you for your scrutiny of the fence. Hopefully when I go to the board tomorrow I will get some sort of a result.

    Well, if you were ONLY asking about the condition on the fence, all that other information in your post was completely unnecessary.

    we are in NSW- and I think there can be a free mediation session set up via?? (just trying to remember who...) ? dept of fair trade (its something strange like this), or else community legal service. Might be worth a final shot to see if a joint position could be reached before giving up. Best of luck.

    Fences look ok to me and I live rurally.
    When my dogs were running off our solution was building our own huge pen for them.

    You were lucky they wern't just shot. That is what usually happens.

    Doesn't matter about the fences then and the dogs are safe from killing stock which was my main fear and the other was snakebite.

    Gigha has a run that she is in when we are not home. When we are at home she is inside and then outside as she pleases and we keep a good eye on her, ususally outside with her.

    My thoughts are what if the horse has it entire upper body over the fence, which it does, and Gigha runs at it and gets a bite on its nose or something. What if my 6 year old goes near it (against all adult advice) and it bites her or swings its head and knocks her unconscious. What if the darling lambies poke their heads through and Gigha has a go at them and god forbid, what if one of them got in our yard? He would be spewing and it would all be my fault. What happens when I have made every effort to repair the fences and yet Gigha gets through...still my fault no doubt even though he wouldnt let me replace the fence??

    I am just trying to avoid it all. Prevention is the cure.

    Sorry, I am clueless when it comes to the rural sides of life, but can't you create a smaller yard that will contain your dog(s) and leave that fence as is?

    What if you got a price on a replacement rural fence asked him to pay for half of that and then you pay the extra to get the type of fence you require.

    From my understanding they are only required to pay half of the like for like replacement fence. That way you do get some money.

    When we wanted 6 ft fences at our old place in treated pine we asked the neighbour for half the price of a 5ft hardwood fence. He was a pensioner and we knew he wouldn't be able to find any more money

    We have since moved into a semi rural area and needed to fix up one side fence to keep our dogs in. They didn't have any animals at the time so there was no need for them to have a good fence, we didn't even ask for money just advised them what we had in mind and went ahead and did it.

    They recently got sheep and goats and I've never been so glad to have a good fence. It is a rural fence but we bought extra mesh wire and filled in the top where the two string wires are and ran a hot wire along the top.

    We are replacing like for like. It is a steel picket and chicken mesh fence, as is what we are going to replace it with, it just wont be sagging and rusty and have sunk into the ground like the present one.

    We have 3 acres of land, we want our dog to be able to run around on those three acres, we cant create a 'houseyard' as it doesnt suit the layout of the sheds and drive etc. (we didnt design it).

    I have just been in touch with the NSW Lands Board and he IS liable for half the fence and he has one month to come to an agreement on it. If he doesnt come back to me that he has changed his mind then I pay $61 and a majestrate looks at the fence and makes a decsion. Legally there cannot be two fences as the neighbour proposed. The lady in charge at the land office was very nice and helpful and has made feel so much better about it.

    The neighbour didnt even want to discuss it, just yell at us, at a push I am willing to pay for all the mesh, but why should I when there is already mesh on the fence - like for like? But he wouldnt even talk to us about it.

    His lambs get out, his sheep poke their heads onto our side of the fence, under it, his horse plunges half his body over the fence and our dogs pushed through it to go chase his sheep.

    WITH A NEW FENCE NONE OF THIS WILL HAPPEN AND THAT IS ALL I AM TRYING TO ACHIEVE. HIS PORTION IS ONLY $1200 AND I HAVE ALLOWED 2 MONTHS TO GET THE MONEY......ARGH ARGH ARGH...........

    Good to hear you have support on the legal side of things. Let us know how it pans out.
