Photo a Day 60 - Good Fences
This type of gate is very common on the old properties in our area - we have several similar ones ourselves. Not for the old German farmers the fancy wrought iron gates we see in Tex's posts - ours are simple wire mesh and iron gates. And only one gate - two require too much time. large enough to fit a farm vehicle though, but not so large that double gates are required. Though I have to say that some of them take a lot of lifting and pushing to open now that they are old and sagging on their hinges.
I love how this farmer at one stage put in a new cement strainer post on one side, but left the old gate - "Why waste a good gate, it still keeps the cows in."
And where does this old gate lead to? Check in next Tuesday for" Rubbish Tuesday" and you will see.
