Bert discusses the work involved in replacing the hedge-fence with post & wire fence, including the spacing of posts, hiring of help (who he boarded & paid $0.10/post they made), and difficulty in splitting Osage orange trees that had cat-faces (places where horses had chewed bark causing irregular growth of tree).
