§19-17-6. Sharing cost of constructed fences.
Where a person has chosen to let his land lie open, if he
shall afterwards enclose or use such land, or portion thereof,
for agricultural, horticultural, grazing or livestock purposes,

value of the partition fence adjoining such lands, or portion
thereof, enclosed or so used that shall have been made by such
adjoining owner, regardless of whether or not such fence at the
time is a lawful fence.
