We used Juniper since the ranchers would pay for you to cut and remove them from their range land. We didn't dig though, cause that'd be too much work, so the design is triangular supports with rails on both sides, then a crossover every third support. These used to be all over, but now it's mostly barbed wire.

Really simple fence though. We have a ton of granite at varying distances above and below ground level so digging is not a guaranteed method.
Bill, how would you imagine a similar fence for goats? for pigs? I would guess more cross rails would be all you need as these critters are smaller than cattle.
Maybe the goats would climb it like steps? Maybe you'd have to use the outside of the triangle to keep them in. It would end up looking like a lean-to surrounding the pen, which doesn't sound like the worst idea to me, just maybe too intensive.
Got endless balsam fir and spruce for poles though. Good ideas. Thanks all.
And Danielle, kudos for being clever to just google street view.
