Unique Fence Posts

These photos were taken when I took my friend to his daughter's at Onamia.  They live on an acreage and raise a few cattle.  It was a foggy, drizzly day so the photos aren't the best.  But I wanted to show you the unique fence posts they have.  The area is very rocky so they put the rocks to good use as fence posts and they are huge.

Thanks for stopping and have a great day.
Praying for all those affected by Sandy
Until next time

Very good use of all the rocks and stones! They make nice looking posts. I love the cows in the photos, too!

I love it...some folks are so resourceful!

Rose said...

I have been wanting to do that with rocks...

Linda said...

I've never seen fence posts like that! Apparently they have a lot of fairly small rocks. Interesting.

AllyJo said...

Well the nice thing about rock fences is that they aren't going any where. 200 years later, it will still be there (if you check out my post, you'll see. LOL) Funny we posted a similar thing. Kind regards.

How creative and useful!

Terrie said...


Rocks like it are landmarks and nice decoration. Sweet "meow meow".

Anni said...

Indeed...I have NEVER in all my 60 plus years seen anything like it before.

I love these rural photos, Barb. I think those are the most amazing fence posts I have ever seen. Love how they used what was on their acreage.

Hugs,

Those people sure know what recycling means. I have never seen fences like this...great captures.

Jori said...

Fabulous fence posts! Love the cow too!

Hi Barb!
What fun to see these fence posts!

We have a lot of fence posts like that around here, too.
We are at the base of the mountains, and our soil is so rocky!
We have quite a few stacked stone fences, and rock filled cattle- panel posts :)

Thanks for sharing..

Have a great weekend

Barb
I have seen many fence posts in my day, but this is a firt for me. Thanks for sharing!

Faye said...

I have seen rocks/stones used in this way before--but only in photos. In KY we build dry stone walls out of field stones. Just another example of using what's available to the best advantage. A quality that rural people certainly have.

Tricia Hays said...

You're not kidding, they are huge! Good way to make use of the rock =)

Tanya said...

i've seen that done with rocks before somewhere, but can't place it! love the photos of the cows :)

Zaroga said...

Nothing wrong with your photos. Cattle can be smelly but cute. What a neat idea for fence post. I'm sure the rocks needed to be cleared and what a great way to re-purpose them.

Marie said...

It's a great idea! That fence is immoveable!

Anne (cornucopia) said...

Fascinating fence posts!

Nancy Claeys said...

I would love to have these rocks for a rock garden -- Nebraska is not know for its rocks. Lol.

What an ingenious way to store rocks.
