I would use end posts 6x6 and put the wire down the side of the pole inside pvc electrical tube and use a pvc electrical box at the bottom of the tube to house either the transformer or the termination resistor. Regarding pattern,the vertical leads will be no different than sloped wires and they are much much easier to maintain.  Intermediate poles about 125 feet or so spaced could be 4x4. The beverage does not care, but they have to be strong enough that the animals do not knock them over. I use copper-weld, and would prefer not to use steel or anything galvinized.
