Part 4 of 5 Ranch Photos from Mike in Tucson

  No one has written a history of the rock post.  They anchor barbed wire fences on most of the ranches in southeastern Oklahoma.  This post on your left is a typical rock post along Route 22 between Caddo & Kenefic.

The Colonel isn't a typical rancher.  He's made his rock posts into works of art, as evidenced by this post on the right.  It graces a fence corner near the house and barn.

Folks wondered for a long time if the dark rocks were painted.  They're not.

Mike,

Those are fabulous posts..I have never seen such a thing but it makes sense. I have never been in Oklahoma--guess I need to plan a trip..I love that kind of Americana--it is so raw and almost primitive. Thanks for sharing the pics.

Mike, I had not heard of these before.  Very interesting.  Thanks for teaching me something new.  I see the Colonel also has his rock post nice and straight.

Barbara Jo, Doreen, Kent and Paula,

The Colonel is working on a new set of gate posts between two pastures (the Kitchen pasture and the Jones pasture) which will be diamond shaped, 5' x 5'.  I helped get them started, and am looking forward to seeing the completed works of art.
