Northern India Farmer

The various heights of the slate pieces makes in impossible for most antelope and deer to determine the height of the fence, because they do not see binocularly, but one kind of antelope sees just fine, and can see the barbed wire, discouraging her from trying. The slate is quarried nearby, and it is cheaper than wood. That same slate from the same quarry is on my floors in Calgary, and it was not cheap.
