Ranch gates and fence signage are common sights in this part of Texas. Here's a few of the neighbors' places - all within a mile of Run*A*Round.
This sight disturbed me a bit. Someone had obviously cut through the barbed wire fence. I hope it was intentional by the owners, but I doubt it, because who would slice their own fence like this, only to have to string it back together again?
As far as I know, the only thing on this acreage is mesquite trees and beef cattle. And I doubt anyone's rustling cattle in Texas in today's market (further west, yes, but in Texas where they can't afford to feed them and don't get much of a price at the sale barn, no.) Maybe it was hunters.
Anyway, these places are all very close to Run*A*Round. Next week I'll take you on a tour of some of the ranch gates along the highway into town (could be a lengthy post!)
