In the case Barnett v. Gomance, Keith Gomance’s mother, Wanda Stafford, owned a cattle ranch neighboring another cattle ranch owned by Shelby and Linda Barnett. The ranches were separated by a 40-plus-year-old, tree-to-tree wire fence that had been built and re-built since a verbal agreement between Gomance’s father and Barnett’s predecessor in interest, under which both parties acknowledged that the fence was built 30 feet inside the Gomance ranch’s property line.

The parties also agreed that both Barnett and the previous owners could graze cattle and otherwise operate their ranches up to the fence line.
