Good Fences #2

We do have some good fences on our property.  It helps to balance out some of the bad ones.  I'll save those for later. 
 This is a line fence J had built a couple of years ago.
 We have an absentee neighbor that brings in truckloads of calves and turns out to graze in the summer.  We had been having some trouble with them getting over on us so J called up the owner and suggested we needed a new fence.  He happily agreed and just said send him the bill for his half.  I wish all the neighbors were that agreeable.
So now we have a solid fixed knot fence between our cow/calf pairs and the neighbor's rotating stockers.

Looks like a nice sturdy fence. No sagging. Now that's a good neighbor!

Yeah that's wonderful to have cooperative neighbors! We needed a fence like that when I was a kid. Mom didn't appreciate the heifers touring her vegetable garden.

that is a very well build study fence. Love the knot in the fence (close up)

What a fantastic neighbor you have, and great series of your fence shots. I particularly like the close up of the fixed knot.

Life is always easier with good neighbors. Great fence, truth be told I'm a little bit jealous... We're still building ours and getting there little by little :) Have a great weekend!

A few years ago I had to help my son put up a wire fence. It was hard work and didn't turn out looking quite as good as yours does! Lovely photos.
