Friday's Fences.....Just Down the Road


Part of the fun in photographing the country backroads, is knowing I can share my life on the Blackland Prairie, with you.

Did you know this style of fencing is called Crossbuck Rail Fencing? To tell you the truth, I didn't know the name until I started writing today's post.

The fencing encloses the property for about a mile. As the road curves around and down a hill, the fence follows. Can you see it set back in the trees?


Several hundred crossbucks....a work of art on the countryside.
