The lower barbed wire has been partly replaced with a standard gauge wire. This allows smaller creatures to pass under without risk of injury.

The bottom wire is plain wire rather than barbed for the animals to pass under safely.

It is our responsibility to keep out cattle belonging to a local rancher; Bill Hiscox. These are wild animals, not to be approached as pets.
