Not getting out exploring enough, too much work going on around here. So I finally took a break and went for one of those country drives, and picked up photos of a variety of things. First, some fences. I quickly realized that farms with animals (like horses or alpacas) in paddocks have the most fences!
One of my favourite well maintained fencelines, just down the road. Some years there are cattle in this field.
Around the corner on Grey Road 12, and they are redoing the road. All the guard rail fences are in, with the cables already attached, but they haven't been tightened yet.
I gave up on the gravel reconstruction and moved over a concession to go up the townline, past this metal fabricating shop. Nice fence out front here too - one of those closely spaced ones to withstand the winter's snow and ice.
And on that road I quickly came to one of the horse farms around here. This one has quite a few paddocks, and a number of people I know keep their horse there.
As you look across two or three paddocks, inevitably you see several fences. But the horses certainly weren't interested in me.
Finally, one of them did look up.
Lots of fences here even where there are no horses in the picture. The style of fences here are built to be easily visible to the horses.
After a loop north and back east, I returned down the 7th Line past the Alpaca paddocks. With 6 big triangular paddocks , there are lots of fences here too. I think you're looking across at least 6 fences. The long points of all of the paddocks end at the barn, which makes it easy to let the animals out to their own field.
A couple of them were lying in the shade of the shelter in the closest paddock here.
