I guess it is what is common in certain areas. I will rephrase and say that there are very few fences in this area that are 39" with 2 strands on top. I personally cannot remember seeing any "shorter" "field fence". I did say "next to no one" was putting 2 strands of barbed wire on top... I will make it a point to look when I am going down the MULTITUDE of roads that I travel to and from farms to test. Many places will put a board on top as there are alot of horse people in this area too. But off the top of my head I cannot think of one place I have seen the shorter 39" wire. I put about 2500 to 3000 miles a month on my vehicle traveling around to farms. I can say there are no 39" fences on any of the farms we rent or lease. A couple have a barbed wire fence through the woods where it is thick and on some of the back fences where there is ledge and banks and gullies that is more to keep the cattle from trying to roam than to really "fence them in". It's there just to discourage them from following a deer path for miles to a neighbors....Some are only 3 wires, but most are at least 4 or 5. There are not alot of "nice looking" stretches like in your pictures for us to fence... I am in Rockbridge County... it is not just named for the "Natural Bridge" that is rock... it is rock and more rock.

Any we build is very close to the ground if there is a chance we will have the sheep in it. We do not have to deal with hogs at least.

If anybody is close, I'd like to have a roll of this for comparison.

I get emails daily, and phone call weekly from wire factories in China. They will put any label I want on it, and believe it or not, a few containers of Chinese trash with Tornado labels have made it past the US customs experts. Needless to say, it's not good. I'd just like to have one roll to stretch next to real wire.
