Inscription.  
Before Saddlehorn was a neighborhood, it was a rural cattle farm. Corrals like this were used (and still are in some instances) by farmers as holding pens to work with cattle that grazed the surrounding pastures. When farmers built this corral, they cut the posts from Eastern Cedar trees located on the property because this wood is slow to decay. They built the cross members high so an excited animal couldn't jump over the fence. The main section of the corral acted as the holding pen, and the cattle were brought into the narrow shoot to separate them for tagging or for veterinary care. The metal gate at the end of the shoot acted as a head-hold to stabilize the animal.
