Of course there were many fences at the pumpkin patch we went to last Sunday. After all, it's a fully working dairy farm, and there have to be fences.
This was the part of the pumpkin patch reserved for school classes only - it's where the pumpkins are "not bigger than your head". I remember when I was chaperoning with Kaefer's preschool and first two years or so at elementary school that I had to silently giggle what some students thought how big their heads were... funny.
Many fences here if you look closely. This was actually already the farm right across the road. As I mentioned in my last post, this is the area of Sonoma County that is mainly farm land and you don't find any vineyards. You can also see how dry the land is in our fourth year of severe drought.
I always have a weakness for barbed wire, I don't really know why.
And since you liked the calves so much, here are two more photos - behind a fence, of course. The calves had just been bottle fed and there was still some milk on the fence, and some of the calves thought they better lick it!
I'm linking to Theresa's Good Fences because these are definitely good fences!
