The simple fence surrounds the drilling operation. In Texas we call it a Horse Head Pump. If you click on the link, you can read about other nicknames for the oil well pump.
It is not unusual to see a herd of cattle in the same pasture.

Nice! It's fascinating to see how many different uses people make of fences.ReplyDelete
Anyone could climb over it...I'm thinking it is to keep the cows from getting hurt.Delete
Easy to see where the nickname comes from. It's dinosaur looking to me. :)ReplyDelete
Great find for FF's!
How about "grasshopper". That is another nickname according to the link.Delete
Hmmm it does look like a horse head.ReplyDelete
Isn't it funny how things get their nicknames...Delete
Ah, this is the Texas which is existing in my head! I can see the nick name. Groetjes, GerdaReplyDelete
Hello Gerda...keep watching. There is so much more to Texas.Delete
Cool shot, Meggie!ReplyDelete
I wonder what the cattle call it!ReplyDelete
It's so interesting to see how many ways we can "fence" something in--I always look forward to Friday Fences, XOXOReplyDelete

It amazing how different the landscapes in different areas are. No oil around here. But there are plenty of tobacco, cotton and sweet potatoes in the summer.ReplyDelete
