description I once asked a farmer neighbour if he had ever done any fencing. The older man replied: "I never done anything much else but fence." His answer, I am sure, was not greatly exaggerated, for in the past Island farmers spent many weeks each year at fencing or related work. It was a job that could not be ignored. Straight and well maintained fences indicated progressive farmers and healthy animals; neglected fences went with dilapidated buildings, poor fields, and poverty.
