Friday Fences ~ Needin' Mendin'

No matter how much work gets done, there's always more to do! My Man and I have talked about rebuilding this short line of fence ever since we moved here...over six years now...and it's still standin'!

Needin' Mendin'

Sometimes, it's hard to tear down an ol' fence when it's been there for so many years. I think it gives character to the place. But when it becomes a health hazard for the livestock, serious consideration beyond aesthetics takes place.

Seen Better Days
We've contemplated moving the angle of the fence which would relocate the gate going up onto the hill...something we can't seem to decide on...probably the main reason we haven't done anything. The other reason is because it's on a really steep, rocky hillside..which is not going to make it an easy task.

So, for now, I'll just enjoy looking at it for the next could be another six years!

Participating in Jan & Jer's Friday Fences blog hop...come on along!

How rugged that terrain is! I think the fence can just be something old to add to it. Great shots!

Even though it's tattered and torn, the life it's had must be AWESOME!...:)JP

That fence certainly does have character, and though I thought fence building was tough in Missouri's rocky ground, yours looks like a much greater challenge.

The wild things would probably welcome the demise of all fences! :)

Some of those old posts are probably older than we are and have history;))

Rose said...

What a job that was to build and what a job it would be to move it/build another up the hill farther!

Shirley said...

Have you thought of doing a "Thompson Fence" also known as an A frame fence?

Linda said...

Tough old fence! Almost a shame to tear it down...but I imagine safety is a concern. I love the view!
