It's amazing what ranchers and farmers leave laying around for future generations to find. We're trying to use as many found objects as we can - to save money and to just get junk up off the ground. Tom found this gate with the "Rocking M" emblem on it out in the pasture. It's rusted, but good and sound, so he used it as a big equipment entrance to the hayfield.
And I wanted a smaller walk through gate for when I take the goats back and forth. This one was lying around somewhere.
In the chicken yard, the chickens, with all their scratching and digging, have unearthed what appears to be the edge of an old gate and occasionally, they'll dig up other pieces of junk - old pipes, cans, pieces of tools. I'm waiting for them to dig some more to see if it's an entire gate or just a piece. Wish they'd dig up some old rancher's Mason jar full of gold coins.
