Good Horse Fence

Cedar Island, North Carolina

 I'd like this place place if it were not for the cold wind constantly blowing.  No, I did not go for a horse ride.  I am not that much of a horse person.  And then, there was that cold wind thing too.
I like this fence for the mish-mash of materials put together to make it.

Down the fence line a ways it began to get more colorful for some reason.  
It might be a horse thing which I did not understand.  

We were at Cedar Island waiting for the ferry to carry us over to Cape Hatteras,
a wait which turned into an over night affair.
