The perimeter of the farms grazing area/pasture for the farms cows and sheep is a rubber band fence system.

The cows and sheep get bounced back into place, or further.It will also bounce away unwanted predators and the 'sort' that like farmers yelling "get orff my land" at.

Don't taunt the bulls ! ( could be kinda fun though )

       Is this like the rubber band mechanism found in Pinball machines, what happens if an animal just gently leans on the fence...Hey! how about bringing bumpers and flippers into the equation.

       I initially thought this was a small electric fence around a stash of comdoms.

       Comdoms?

       You know, for taunting the bulls.   

       Sadly impractical - rubber bands perish pretty quickly outdoors. They probably wouldn't last the winter.

       Yeah the tires washed right off my car this morning, DrCurry. It's a shame, that.
