Put a Fence in Front of It 9

Time, once again, to put a fence in front of it.  Always one of my favorite things to do.

These horses live just around the corner from Run*A*Round.
Love Mr. Tough Guy, here.


Mr. Tough Guy still watching my every move.

Um, perhaps I should have titled this post 'Put a Tree in Front of It!'  Sheesh!

See ya later, Tough Guy!
Linking to Friday's Fences
and a new meme that debuts today, Rural Thursday

oooh, I love that pony. I have always had a thing for ponies. Hence, the two minis in my barn that have no job other than for me to love.

I hope you'll join my Love quest, see today's post. I know you have a critter pic that will embody it...

Jill said...

I think he loves you!

ladyfi said...

He is a cute guy!

Roan said...

I think Mr. Tough Guy has a Napoleon complex. lol I kind of like the tree, adds reality to the mix.

Tanya said...

mr tough guy doesn't look so "tough"!!

c. Joy said...

Guard horse, instead of guard dog? Look how green that pasture is.

Chatty Crone said...

Why is it when we want animals or kids to perform - forget it??? sandie

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Love me some rotten little furry ponies.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

He was checking you out!! LOL! blessings ~ tanna

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Love those shots... I'd love to run my hands through those shaggy winter coats!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

He does look a bit perturbed at your presence! Wonderful collection of "ponies."

Thanks so much for sharing with us at Rural Thursdays, T! :)

Joop Zand said...

Greetings and a nice day.

I think that larger chestnut was going "under cover" in those shots. When ever i try and take photos of horses they must think that the camera is food and rush over to see what's happening.
Excellent photos though, and Mr.Tough guys cracks me up !!!!

Sandra said...

number 3 and 4 with the tree in front of his face are just plain gorgeous. I LOVE THEM and they make me happy to look at. that is how i rate photos, not like others, but how happy do they make me. beautiful

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Hey, you lookin' at me? Yea, you, da one wid the camera.

He looks tough until he get up close.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

heheheee Tough guy, heheheeee that's so funny! =) Beautiful-est tough guy I've ever seen!!! =)

Wow! I wonder if that little guy has had to fight for respect all his life? Looks like one horse who don't take no bull!

Margaret said...

It's easy being tough when there is a fence...I bet that little guy would have run if you had crossed over. And I love the horse begging for attention! :) Thanks for the heads up on the rural meme. :)

parker said...

Mr. Tough Guy knows everthing that takes place in his pasture!

Cindy said...

That pony is so funny! Never changed his expression!

Jan n Jer said...

HAHA...looks like Mr tough guy is daring you to jump the fence!!! Great shots!!!

Paula said...

I think Mr. Tough Guy is just a push over for you.

Sylvia K said...

I always love your horses! Great shots for the day! I also love to see him peeking through the trees - keeping an eye on you!

Sylvia

latebloomerbuds said...

Tuff Guy was the star today. Don't you love when they give you material to work with, LOL! So cute T! Margie

Rohrerbot said...

I love when horses stick their heads closer to you over the fence. Most of the time they are really nice....other times watch out!!! This guy looks pretty cool though:)

Greenacresmama said...

What pretty neighbors! Great blog, and thanks for visiting Green Acres!

grammie g said...

Rain said...

Tough guy is their Thelma!! On guard!! Especially love the branch in front though!!~~Rain

Ron said...

The pony looks a little puzzled about you.

Trees, fences, they're all the same aren't they? LOL

Furry Bottoms said...

He rather likes you, this Tough Guy!

Candy C. said...

Cute pony! The bay looks like our Paco!

Rita said...

He really does keep an eye on you and never moves! LOL! The tree in front one was quite curious, though. :)

Daniel said...

Maybe he felt the need to poney-up... or were enticing him with a treat? :)

Never tire of seeing these beautiful creatures.

Ana Eugénio said...

I love horses! coming from Rural Thursday to say hello too :)

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Looks like the little guy didn't move a hoof all the while you were there. He just stares. I thought he was Mr. Tough Guy.

islandwonder said...

That pony is adorable!

Karen said...

Tough guy is pretty sweet!

Tombstone Livestock said...

He is adorable, great pictures, love the blue sky and green grass ... looks like spring, no matter what Puxy Phil says.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Love the horses...maybe you'd better bring a few apples next time. Or give him a big kiss. Maybe he wants to be your Valentine.

Susan said...

Boy oh boy, he wasn't gonna take his eyes off of you was he! How funny! The shots are awesome Theresa!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Mr Tough Guy was there to 'save the day' just in case you hopped the fence to shoot them even closer.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, I like horses of all kinds. I never have owned one but sure do like to ride them. Your pictures are really cute! Have a wonderful day! Happy Groundhog Day!

Mariette said...

Dearest TexWisGirl,

Looking at the horses and pony is a bit hard for me right now... We had a pony as children, even two at one time.
But due to the severe accident my brother had on Saturday, where a 76-year old man with his horse and buggy crossed the road where Harry road on his motor... the horse got wounded and had to be put to sleep by a vet. My brother air-lifted by helicopter and brought to a specialised hospital in Germany, where he was touring. In a couple of hours I will know the outcome of his surgery from today. You can read my post...
Love to you,

Mariette

Robin said...

T, horses are so photogenic! Nice to see green grass there!

Debbie said...

Inger said...

Nice neighbors you have there.

Fun! Horses are interesting creatures - some could care less about the camera, others pose. These guys are certainly full of character!

Tammy said...

Beautiful horses! I really love the second photo!

Millie said...

Mr. Tough Guy is very cute!

Andrew Fulton said...

Wonderful to see T..xx

Sorry that was a crap comment.. lots going on so not much time.

Carole M. said...

you certainly have the fences in abundance where you live. Enjoy your 'country' photographs and start to wonder how far you might live from a township?

CameraCruise said...

What a cute guy!

Bob Bushell said...

They're beautiful, pretty young things.

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

These horses are all so pretty...the pony is cute

dr momi said...

One extra cautious pony!! :-)

Larry Ostby said...

I think he thinks that you think he's tough. But we know better don't we.

eileeninmd said...

Love the horses, Theresa. I had to laugh at your "put a tree in front". That happen to me a lot. LOL! Great photos. Have a wonderful day.

Southwest Arkie said...

Beautiful horses, Tough Guy looks like he is really studying you!

Nancy Reinke said...

Delightful prose and photos. I love to photograph animals and your shots are great. Thanks for stopping by Joyful Altitude and commenting. Means a lot. Blessings.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

The pony is keeping an eye on you. Maybe he's just a ham and likes to have his picture taken. :D Great shots as always!

Pricilla said...

The little guy is very cute

Bruce Clark said...

I love horses anytime! I found some today,too, but decided the burro was more interesting. ;-)

gowestferalwoman said...

Sally wants to know if he has a girlfriend...

Marie said...

Wonderful pictures! Love the curious horse!

Carletta said...

I think Mr. Tough Guy just wanted a little sugar or else he was making sure he got his fifteen minutes of fame! :)

NicoleB said...

Nice neighbours!
I'd much rather have these than my current ones ;-)

heyBJK said...

They're enjoying the sunshine! That's one fence horses couldn't chew on or probably escape from, either.

Beth said...

awww ... those horses are too cute. great shots. (:

Dianne said...

I love Mr Tough Guy too :)

Evelyn S. said...

I'm back again....I just realized that the fence is extremely strong...and probably horse-proof! (Expensive to build, too, don't you think?)

Pat Tillett said...

Very nice phtos! I love horses. They sure all seem to have their own personalities...

pattisjarrett said...

Put a tree in front of it! LOL You may have a new blog hop!
