Not me. I've just fenced to keep in my donkeys and keep out goats.
RK> We are seeking advice on how to strengthen the corner posts.
Are you wiring the tops of your corner posts to the bottoms of the
adjacent posts on either side? To tighten the wires - are you using
a wooden wishbone whereby you turn the 2 handles while the wire is
inserted in the notched single end that is braced on the far side of
the post you are tightening to (it would have to be high enough up
to turn the handle).

How deep are you placing your posts? (They should at least an arm
length deep). Aside from wood (Here in the southeast of Mexico
living fence-posts are common), what about using rebar reinforced
concrete? Also, you really need two people to get the wires good and
tight. How many wires are you using? You need at least 4 rows. And
how far apart are you posts?
Lastly, while I've never used one myself, what about a battery
powered repellent non barbed wire?
