Of Barbed Wire Fences

Hi! How is everyone today? I hope you are all enjoying getting a peek into what has been going on around here thru this blog!

The boys have been working on putting up a fence between ours and  the neighbor’s back pastures. They’re using field fencing, with a top strand of barbed wire, strung on T-posts and supported by H-bracing using Osage Orange posts, also known as Hedge wood. Osage Orange is an extremely dense wood that is naturally rot and pest resistant and should last for several decades.

The boys sprayed an orange streak every 12 feet to mark where the T-posts would need to go in.
