Stones and Bones



We are finding a number of old bottles and metal but mostly bones in what was the old dry stone wall that surrounds the old horse farm where we are working. We recon they might be horse bones. We've pulled apart a lot of the hedge row and are now rebuilding the wall. 

It's funny, some of the smoother unusual limestone shapes we've come across look a lot like old dry bones too. Have the bones started turning into stones? Perhaps.

Maybe the longer ones were used as 'through bones'.

Should we reuse them in this old horse fence again?  

Lots of questions
