One fence, three uses - Good Fences

Three pictures of the fence which forms one side of the'corral' behind my daughter's house. Her dogs have free access to the 'corral.'

It keeps other creatures out, including this visiting dog.


Boundary fence
Some visitors will always raise a bark, if the dogs see them that is.

Deer fence

It would not need to be so high to keep out creatures like this.

Snapping turtle
I guess he could dig underneath it if he wanted to.

Nevertheless this fence has proved its worth and earned its place in a post  here  at

Reminds me of the fence we had in North Carolina. Never did see any deer although we knew they were about.

Protective fences are very important.
the snapping turtle is a dangerous animals.
I'm glad it's behind a fence, but they do not want to break out.
I come visiting you from "Good Fences"
Have a nice day
Greetings from Germany

The deer could cross that fence in a simple jump but I bet that dog helps to scare them away from the area. I had a turtle once that escaped an aquarium because the rain filled the tank full outside. He floated to the top and crawled away. I never found him as he headed to a river somewhere. I tell people he ran away but of course he doesn't run, just slowly crawled off going under the dog fence apparently with ease.

What a pretty place to roam, and I can bet that turtle is enjoying himself, or would it be herself, who knows for sure, but it's a perfect setting!

How clever to show us three critters being kept out by the fence!
