Default Fences for a 5 acre land

Now I dont have a 5 acre land but since one day I would be trying to own one I would want to know what you guys think about this.
So right now I'm just planning my dream house :P Seeing that I love land and I hate this little tiny backyard I have right now I would have land doesnt matter if it is 1 acre or 5... I just need to know what kind of fence I would need for this kind of land. I know there is a huge difference between 1 acre and 5...

I was thinking of a stone fence with a iron fence on top kinda like this...

It would cost a lot but hey I have a lot of time to gain some money for this...

or would an invisible fence be better? Or both.
I just dont want my pup to get out :\ and kinda want to keep people out :P HAHA!

Any thoughts? Thanks!

This is the kind of fencing I've chosen for my dream home:


I'll be getting it 6.5' high :3

Well, Koda is a pretty small girl. 22-23" I believe. And she can CLEAR a 6'2" fence. I mean clear it. Feet don't come close to touching. Sooo I figured 6'5" would be a nice height but wouldn't be as crazy expensive as 7-8".
I do like the fence you posted. Honestly, if I did that fence, I would do 2-3" of rock then 4-6" of the actual fence on top. (:

Haha! She is about that size too. :P haha I dont know how high she can jump but with practice I'm guessing it would be high. :P Thats a good idea to do 2-3 of stone and then 4-6 of fence C:

I believe it would be cheaper as well, since you can get stones like that for free in many places. (:
Stockade fencing (or privacy fencing as I call it lol):

Yeah stockade fencing does look like its meant for privacy, I would want to be able to see through to the land plus I would think from a distance the iron would blend into the trees (If there were to be any) but with the stockade it would be a little more noticeable.

What I love about stockade fencing is the variety of wood stains you can use on it. I once stained one for someone, and it went from the light colored fence above to a GORGEOUS red mahogany oakwood color. It was to die for.

Personally I just have a thing for wrought iron, and the fence you posted. I love being able to see through it as well as just the old-timey feel I get when I look at it.

True you could stain the wood to a nice color! I totally forgot about staining wood HAHA! But yeah I like the wrought iron more because you can see through it and it does have that nice classy look C:
