Carden Fences

 Eastern Kingbird on wire fence

Fields on the Carden Alvar (aka Carden Plain - northeast of where I live) is mostly used for  cattle and horse ranching. Fencing there is rustic, posts usually made of cedar.

 Posts are well fortified as much of the soil on the Carden is shallow

Cedar split rail fence

I showed you a  cedar slit-rail fence last week but this is a little bit different.

I like rustic fences like this. Especially in the country. The shot of the bird on the fence is really neat. I enjoyed all your fence photos.

Great fences & love the bird!

Kathy said...

I've often wondered how effective split rail fences are. I've never seen one on a cattle ranch here in Texas and we have plenty of cedar wood. Of course barbed wire is the standard here; although it's not full of character like the split rails it gets the job done.

Valerie said...

Great shots - just love the character of weathered timber! Happy weekend to you.

Randy said...

Love that little bird.

Kay said...

The fences may be simple but I'll bet it was plenty of work to construct them eons ago. I love how that wood weathers.

Linda said...

Nice rustic fences!

Pauline Woodcock said...

I really like that style of rustic fencing. I wonder if I could convince my son to build one. Hmmm.
