I know stacked stone fences are a lot of work. Can you imagine how difficult it was to place these gigantic stones to form a fence?

you had me thinking the very same thing ... those stones are HUGE. wow, what work. i bet the individuals that did that job have huge muscles!! ( :ReplyDelete
Hi Beth...I have no idea how this was done. They must have a lift of some kind.Delete
Those stones are 10 times larger than the stones in Ireland. I can't see this stone fence falling down; it's there to stay.ReplyDelete
Hi Ruth....did you notice the stone building next to it? There must be a stone quarry near-by.Delete
well, just when i left a comment on another blog saying we don't get stone fences in texas... wow, this is beautiful!ReplyDelete
There are some pretty rocky places in Texas....There are also a lot of stone quarries in the area where I live.Delete
Must be a lot of stones in your part of the country! Beautiful wall and building.ReplyDelete
Fellow Texan here...makes you wonder how they got those in place, assuming it's an old fence.ReplyDelete
This is the kind of fence that lasts and lasts.ReplyDelete
That was some serious work!ReplyDelete
Built to last....ReplyDelete
Stone fences are awesome! We have them in Kentucky, but not like this. It takes a lot of work to build them.ReplyDelete
I thought of you on our drive and paid attention to ALL the fences we passed. Love the stone fence you feature today; they're really a part of our landscape. XOXOReplyDelete
Love the texture of the stone...yep it makes you wonder how in the world they stacked those big stones1ReplyDelete
Such a pretty fence and I'm sure a lot of work. My great grandfather used to build stone walls in the little town where I'm from. It is neat that the fences and wall remain even after they have gone. Take care. HeatherReplyDelete
