Me either. I thought we had rocks. We have alot of ledge, that runs across and through the fields and it seems to "grow" and stick up out of the dirt in new places every year. But the "moveable rocks" are nothin like some of what y'all have.

If you can move it without using blasting powder it is just gravel.

I fact to really be considered a rock it should require drilling and then loading with powder to move it.

20 hours later I'm ready for planting.The retaining wall was built from the rocks removed although the bigger ones were moved elsewhere because they were useful. I used the backhoe on my tractor, the grapple, the box blade, my road grader and the landscape rake on the tractor to turn it into this. It used to look like the pictures posted earlier of central tx cedar and rocks. The before condition is still evident in the foreground to the second picture. Some of the rocks that are just peaking out are in excess of a ton.

I finally got back there and took a few pics of my cave entrances. That atv above sits about halfway in between the entances. The manhole looking entance sprials down 26 feet and is actually quite easy to climb down. It ends in a room 8'x10' connected to a hall that runs 400 feet plus underground to the other entrance. There's 3 other rooms along the way and a fork that we've never explored due to debris. Several Indian mounds scattered around the pasture around it.

The sides of the hole look really smooth, is that from people crawling in and out of the cave?

Beats me. It was definitely used. We've found points inside and smoke on the ceiling. Red kept it pretty quite. I think he thought the gubermint might stick their horns in. We've always had enough trouble with Arrowhead digger's.

Fence, that is so cool! We have a couple caves but no way am I going down there. And we do have a subterranean structure right across from the house:
