Interviewer: That had as-- um sharp spiky pieces, what did you call that? Speaker: They had the- they had the- the shed fence, and they had the crab fence, and they had the snake fence. Now the snake fence was done with the rails go- well, you-see they'd- they'd go this way and then the next fence would go that way and then come this way, you-see?
A rail fence is we used to call them, but then there was the rail fence, they made them into the crab fence or the shed fence, or then there was another one they called the draper fence around here. How it got the name of Draper, because there was a Draper man that started to build it. And it went by the name of Draper-Fence. Yeah.
