1880sThis historic fence ran 80 miles from the west end of the Capitan Mountains to Vaughn, N.M. The only part remaining is in Haspris Canyon on a ranch headquartered near Ancho. The fence kept livestock from drifting into unprotected areas. In "I Rode a Horse Wild and Free," Guy Crandall wrote... there was only one long fence in the southern part of the territory of New Mexico, and that was known as the Old Block Drift Fence. With only the one drift fence, the cattle roamed over the wide expanses of New Mexico.
