What is it????

Posting this image I took at an old farm yesterday.

Who knows what that is in the driveway? And what it is for.

Those under 50 or who didn't grow up on a farm might have trouble. Or...maybe not.

Let's see.

It's a cattle grid. Hooved animals can't walk over it easily so it stops them from going out the gates.

Exactly what I was going to say... and I'm definately well under 50

Just as a point of interest it also stops women in high heeled shoes and small children getting in

Here in Brazil they are known as "mata-burro" - which translates to Donkey-Killer.

(still under 50 )

They're called "cattle guards" here.

Waay over 50.

Like Chris I'm from Yorkshire, where cattle grids are 10 a penny (just about every farm has them). They don't stop all four legged animals, my two dogs have no problems crossing them.

I was stunned at your question, since they're so common here I thought everyone must know what they were. Just goes to show you should take nothing for granted.

i'm afraid you've all got it wrong. these are called 'squat and go's'. just squat and go; a great, quick replacement for outhouses

ok, just kidding. yes, cattle guards. you can still purchase these today. they are still in use. http://www.2tcattleguard.com/2t_catt...d_overview.htm
