Run Down

Most of the ranchers and farmers in the West used local wood sources to build their gates and stock pens. As time passed, farming and ranching either became mechanized or slowly deteriorated. It is very unusual to see new fences and new gates. Most of the time the old ones are simply patched and made do. If maintenance lags, the fences begin their inevitable decline. Sort of like old age.
