Back in April I posted a painting of a rock jack--a triangular wooden structure weighted with rocks. They are used in hard, rocky ground out west as deadweights for stretching wire fence. If they are built like this one, with a series of posts forming a square or circle with wire wrapped around to contain the rocks, they are called rock cribs. The cribs are heavier and are generally used to anchor corners, or breaks in the fence, such as this gate.
Just thought you'd want to know.
