How about a few more ranch gates?

Order up a plain gate...

...with a cut-out on the side.

Or stay with your initial idea.

Or just go (not-so-free) wheeling it.

Clint said...

Well,I like 'em all. They bring back memories of my childhood in south Texas, when we had to climb over or crawl under those fences so we could hunt rabbits. Ahhh...the memories.

Oh, I like the "B" one best. Though the horse shoe holds some appeal.

I am partial to the monogram. ;) blessings ~ t.

I like the free wheeling gate! (if we had a gate, it would probably have a race engine on it....)

Tanya said...

i would probably go with the initial....i'm kinda plain like that i guess!

Tammy said...

I like the second one the best! Cool photos!!

ladyfi said...

Those are pretty! I like the one with the horse shoe.

Ruta said...

These are great but I like the 'free wheeling" wheel. I would go for something funky and re-purposed myself...

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I admit the little horse shoe scene is fun!

The second one is my favourite because it looks like chocolate. That's just the way I am.

Michael said...

good fences make good neighbors; or at least neighbors who know their place, which is part of being a good neighbor.

Rain said...

The horse shoe one is perfect-but it doesn't look like cows he's hustling! looks like a donkey-but cant be!! Love them all !!~~Rain

Sandra said...

i would pick the initial idea, love the photo, the house behind the fence and the gate.

Clint Baker said...

It makes me miss my uncle that just passed away in Texas!

Kathy said...

I like that charming little house behind the rather plain gate.

Gail said...

Wonderful gates, I'm sure tickeled when our work correctly.

DJan said...

How very... Texas of these gates. Nice!

Gone Country said...

Love the horseshoe! I can relate to the plain gate since that's what we have.

DogsMom said...

I need something like any one of these. Thanks for showing options.

Madge Bloom said...

Love that horseshoe! Gotta enjoy people's creative bent!

Joop Zand said...

I like the second very much Theresa.....good shots.

Greetings, Joop

Wanda..plain~N~simple said...

I prefer the hoseshoe, very creative.

Changes in the wind said...

Love the welcome horseshoe....

Sandy said...

I like the last one, simple but beautiful. (o:

Ginger said...

I like the last one too. Wide open spaces beyond it...that's for me!

islandwonder said...

I like the horse shoe on the side. Cute!

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

I have wanted a nice gate for a long time, but we don't really have a place to put one without doing a LOT more fencing....and I don't think that's in the budget:-(

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

I really, really like the "Welcome" horseshoe, but I also like the initial.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I want more choices.

Rita said...

I must be a plain Jane. I like the wagon wheel one the best. Nice and simple. But they all look nice. :)

parker said...

I always liked the gates that used their brand to identify the spread.

Birdman said...

That second one sure is 'welcoming'.

Judy said...

I love that second one.

Jill said...

This is a great bunch of gates!

Linda said...

What an interesting idea for a photo series. When we travel in the west, we're always intrigued by the various ranch gates. It seems that nearly every photographer has a favorite subject, whether it be courthouses, lighthouses, barns, or whatever. Ranch gates would be a good subject for a photo collection.

Jan n Jer said...

I like the welcome cutout!

Sylvia K said...

You do find the "great gates"!! These are all terrific! Enjoy your day, Theresa!

bailey-road.com said...

I like this fun series!

polkadotpeticoat said...

I love that little house...so sweet in the trees with its little gate! love it!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Hmmm -- don't know which I'd choose (course all of them are bigger than our little cottage ;>)

Farm Girl said...

Those are such nice pictures. I like gates. I also really like the one with the house far back off the road. That is very nice too.

Candy C. said...

I'm partial to the horseshoe cut out myself! :)

Ron said...

Love the horse shoe!

Hilda R.B said...

I like your ranch gates. So different than us.
Have a great day to you.

Honest Abe said...

There are more varieties in Arizona and New Mexico that I have seen. I never saw that many in Texas but then I just sold encyclopedias and Pots and Pans as a means to make money and get from Arizona to Houstin. I made it and was able to come back to Ohio by Greyhound Bus.

I was mostly in the towns and asleep when we went from one small town to another.

Michelle Renee said...

I like the initial and the wheel the best. I'm always intrigued when I drive by properties with entrances like these.

Larry Ostby said...

Really like the welcome cutout.

barbara l. hale said...

Love the cut out on that first fence. Another nice batch of fences.

Giga said...

Podoba mi się pierwsza z miłym przywitaniem :-). Pozdrawiam.*** I like the first with a nice greeting :-). Yours.

Bob Bushell said...

It goes round, round, round, round, round, round etc

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I'm liking the horse shoe, thank you very much!

Buttons said...

There sure is a lot of funky gates in Texas I love seeing them. B

Nancy said...

I love farm and ranch gates; they are so unique to the owner...Thanks for showing us some more....I especially like the round cut out one.....I bet the different elements in it reflect the owner.....

Maybe we should start a meme on gates....

Ellie said...

A great colletion of gates - you sure have a lot of them where you are. I really like that house as well.

Roan said...

I like them all. The horseshoe is cool.

Barb said...

I'm learning that gates in TX are massive!

Robin said...

T, Very interesting! The second spread is very pretty. Do you know what the solar panels are for?

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

There's no doubt that Texas has the most interesting gates! I never tire of catching a glimpse of TX ranches. They remind me of my brother's few acres when he was there, he loved TX.

Pricilla said...

I saw some while driving around the other day on our anniversary and it made me think of your posts

SweetMarie said...

That first gate has some big lights. I would want lights out there too. I like initials on the gates. I would love to have some land and have it all fenced in and have a big gate. My furbabies would really love it!

CameraCruise said...

I like all of them!
Great shots!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

You're too funny! Love the 2 horses & windmill on the horseshoe =)

MarieElizabeth said...

I like the detail design on the first gate - neat way tp personalize.

Nancy Claeys said...

They are all great -- don't see many around here, but I actually took a photo of one yesterday. I'll post soon. :)

Sall's Country Life said...

I'll stay with the initial idea with a little ranch on the side :)

Carole M. said...

you sure have the gate and fence and barn material happening right outside your back door - almost. Nice collection today.

Breathtaking said...

I never realized there were so many different gates in Texas until
following your blog,and it's just incredable how you find them all.

Deb said...

aren't Texans the coolest...love the adorned gates...

Pam said...

They are all great gates, but I love the amazing and extra-large horse shoe design.
Thanks for sharing the beauty you see, Theresa.

Hello Theresa,
Fantastic to see these different gates.
Number 2 and 3 are complete artwork. Beautiful!!

Brita said...

A large ranch, I guess means many gates. I like the gate in a horse shoe. Funny and nice. thanks so much for you told me about the verification code. After a lot of but I've managed to get it off / Brita

A Quiet Corner said...

They are works of art, aren't they? And to think I wanted a cattle gate when we lived in the Hollow!...:)JP

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I like all the gates. But I think I would go with the one with the wheel just because I like old wheels.

Elaine said...

I like the last best.

Friko said...

We have cattle grids with little side gates but no gates other than five-bar-gates into fields.

Paula said...

The more gates the merrier. I like the white house with the tan roof and the gate too. Neat place.

Lynne said...

Texans love their signature gates and fences. I am amazed at your growing collection.

Sally said...

I love that you go to so much trouble to show us barns/gates/fences/ponds/birds/dogs. You are awesome! :)

Elizabeth Grimes said...

If I had a ranch, I'd get the biggest, prettiest, fanciest gate around. :)

Tracy said...

Gosh TEx, you certainly do have many fences in Texas...

Icy BC said...

Beautiful fences from your perspective of looking straight out into the field...

SportyMummy said...

Wow! thanks for sharing these wonderful interesting fences from Texas! They are great!!

As usual, I love your fences....we may have more barns but you sure have the fences. All of them interesting.

Lisa RedWillow said...

Love the gates. There is just something about all of them that a different

Tammy said...

Love the "welcome" horseshoe! Texas fences/ gates are so distinct.

sweetdaysundertheoaks said...

The initial works for me!

Rizalenio said...

I want to have that welcome sign in a horseshoe. First time for me to see this welcoming idea. Awesome photos as always.

eileeninmd said...

Cool looking gates, my favorite is the second one. Great photos, Theresa!

AudreyO said...

I like the 3rd one. More modern looking than the other two :)

Debbie said...

I like the monogram - and the house behind it!

Love the welcome horseshoe

Rohrerbot said...

I like that horseshoe design...very cool!

Linda R said...

You just don't see gates like that here in the city.. They look great..

Hugs, Linda

heyBJK said...

I really like the second gate, but the horse shoe on the first one is nice. I've noticed electronic gates don't seem to be used much down that way.

Michelle said...

I do like that horse shoe gate!

Chatty Crone said...

I think my favorite is number 3! sandie

Michaele said...

Good gosh your comment list is long! I kept looking and wishing that the second photo had goats in it. But I doubt it really was (sigh)

Randy said...

I love the horseshoe!

JDS said...

I like the second one the best. There is something about that "scene inside the horseshoe."

Paula said...

Ooooh! I liked all of these~ especially the horseshoe!

Carletta said...

Love the horseshoe!
The big massive gate and fence in front of the small ranch house just seems a little much. :)
Loved all your captions!

Gillian Olson said...

I liked the one with the horseshoe and cutouts. Great gates!

Saun said...

I like the horseshoe gate. Do you have a gate?

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

i like the red gate and the horse shoe on it.

xo

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Gotta go with the horseshoe. Nice!!

SquirrelQueen said...

I really like the horseshoe, that is cool.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

My momma always wanted a set of old wagon wheels to go in her garden...she would have liked the wagon wheel gate, so I will too;) I love all of the images in your header...it shows you and your favorites!

Susan said...

Love what they've done with the horseshoe :D)

Linda said...

I liked the wagon wheel, but you have to admire someone who will put the fancier ones up! Lovely set of choices you provided!

Southwest Arkie said...

I'm liking the horseshoe- that is neat.

Pat Tillett said...

I REALLY wish I had a ranch gate. That would mean that I have a ranch...

edenhills said...

Pretty!

Evelyn S. said...

Solar panels on that first one?? These are all terrific gates....I was just thinking about how Texas-sized each one is, too.

gtyyup said...

Very cool metal horseshoe cut-out!!

georgettesullins said...

I do like the plain gate. I'm with Clint. They just bring back the memories of climbing over them or under them and when grandpa wasn't looking...swinging on them.

pattisjarrett said...

Love the detail in the cut-out one. The simple wheel is nice, too.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Very nice photos.

Regards and best wishes

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

I like the ol' wagon wheel... pure and simple baby
