I've always felt pretty much the same.t he early gaucho turned off lots of folks.
Until I got my hands on some good high tensile barbwire and learned how to handle it.
I've probably stretched as much ok barbwire as any man alive. I won't use any more on my place.
You don't show a location. If you get through central Texas. Swing by I'll give you a roll of good barbwire.

McArthur Lumber and Post, about 2 hours from you, has 14 and 16 gauge Tornado HT barb in stock. If you ever have the chance, stop in and buy a roll of the 14 gauge and give it a try. You'll have a new first choice, by an even larger margin. :tiphat:

Thanks, I'll give it a shot on my next project.

They make delivery runs to your neighborhood, so you might ask about slipping some on a truck for you to intercept. Barbed wire fun fact of the day.....It was invented by Lucien Smith of Kent, Ohio.
