Put a Fence in Front of It 11

Can you stand to feast your eyes on another hunk o' beef?  This fellow resides on the way to town.


If only humans could make rolls and wrinkles look this attractive.
And another cow, just peering at the weirdo with the camera.

How about putting a fence behind it, for a change?  In this case, a small herd of broomtails (yearlings).
And one of my favorite views - across the front yard of Run*A*Round Ranch.
Those are bell chimes hung in one of the trees.

Linking to Friday's Fences

Funny what the mind reads... I saw "feast your eyes...Beef Cake" and got all excited for a minute there:@) Cool pics!

Arija said...

Boy, what a hunk! I bet my girls would love to have him in their paddock.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

That is some big beef for real.... I am having beef for dinner this evening, but I try not to think about from whence it came, I just eat it anyway...
As for those rolls and wrinkles, that big boy needs to share his secrets!

rainfield61 said...

Thinking of beef, though the pictures are cool, the cow can never be anymore.

Kelsie From Our Country Home said...

YUM...I think I must be hungry ;)

Great photos as always.

Blessings Kelsie

Joe said...

I think under those rolls and wrinkles is nothing but muscle...that's what I tell my wife about me anyway ;).

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I love the bull's stripes :-)

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

LoveLoveLove your fence Tex! That is a big bull! He is handsome :)

Lynne said...

Great fence pictures . . . Big guy too! Do ever meet other "picture takers" when you're out and about in your blue sky, greening land?

dr momi said...

That bull couldn't care less that you were taking his picture! Neat fence in your own yard!

Mike said...

As much as you like fences, I've never seen a picture of a run down store front or some seedy character behind a glass enclosure. ;)

Jill said...

Now that is a hunk of beef!

Great shots as always. My fav is the shot of your fence.

Dianne said...

look at that wonderful light across your fence and grass
beautiful

I love all the big ole critters

georgettesullins said...

The light on the fence in the last picture, makes everything appear golden.

Sandra said...

you have a wonderful view not matter which way you look from your house. the big old beefy guy looks like an oreo with a triple middle and i love the fence in the one with the cow peering at you

latebloomerbuds said...

Ah yes, your view is the best one T! And I love looking at beef, even on my plate. ;-) Margie

Tanya said...

look at all those beautiful cows and horses...i LOVE the sound of chimes!

yes, do a tree meme!

DJan said...

Your pictures always make me smile. That big guy sure does look like he would give somebody a run for his money. :-)

Comment1 said...

I like the hunk o' beef! In the first 2 pictures the colours on the back end perfectly align with his leg. Just one of those silly things I notice and think is cool!

Nancy said...

That is one big dude...I would not want to be inside that fence with him...and by the way I love that last shot of the fence.....

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

No need to ask "Where's the beef?" cause I think you just found it!

Love your fence, this is just the kind I want in my yard, if I could only convince my hubby we need one. ;)

Nancy said...

Wow! Your homestead looks amazing. And I love to see your ranch livestock and horse photos. I'm so glad you share all of this wonder with us. God bless.

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

You had a wonderful view on your way into town.

Broomtails huh? So pretty.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Yeah -- he is a very handsome hunk of beef on the hoof! 'Broomtail' is a new word for me -- and that's a beautiful herd of them too.

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

Interesting coloring on that guy. I pass by some bulls almost every day but there is no place to pull over and take photos. One of the difficulties of rural roads, I guess.

Melodie said...

That is a nice looking bull!

Linda said...

He's a beauty. Unusual color, though. Do you think he's a mixed breed of some sort? Great lighting in that photo across your front yard.

Reena Walkling said...

Bell chimes? And I thought it might be a flying squirrel!

Southwest Arkie said...

Whoa- he's cute- I don't think I have ever seen that coloring before..unique!

polkadotpeticoat said...

Look at mr Moose oh steer I mean.....cute!

Sally said...

You have me smiling again, and that's a good thing. :)

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Yes, a hunk-o-beef, indeed! love the horses, too, & the evening 'glow' in the last shot =)

Rita said...

There's a lot of critters down there I'd want a fence in front of. ;) But they're beautiful to see.

Ginger said...

Great pictures...always lovin' the animals!

Jan n Jer said...

Great pics...Now you got me thinking "Bull Roast" YUM!!!

thesedaysofmine.com said...

All great photos, but oh, that last one! Gorgeous!

Montanagirl said...

Nice shots! I've never seen a Bull with those markings. What kind is he? Besides big, that is. lol

bailey-road.com said...

He does have pretty markings. I like your fence.

Susan said...

Wonderful photos! That steer says tender steak all over him! The horses are awesome. But best of all is the view at the Run a Round ranch!

Furry Bottoms said...

I like how that one horse has a swish to his tail in the pic!

parker said...

Pastures are greening and the livestock is looking healthy. Fences appear to be in good repair. Ready for spring and summer!

Farm Girl said...

Isn't it wonderful to love your own fence so much. I always feel the same way when I sit and stare at our fence. I don't remember the hot, and hard work so much. I do have just joy looking at it.
I do love the shot of that giant bull.
He is pretty awesome.

Buttons said...

Why is the song lyrics a hunk a hunk of burning love stuck in my head now. Thanks for that :)
He is quite the beast I should introduce him to my ladies they would never be able to decide between him and our new fella. B

Joop Zand said...

Giga said...

Nie lubię ogrodzenie z drutu kolczastego, zawsze myślę, ze zwierzęta zrobią sobie krzywdę przez niego. Najładniejsze jest ostatnie. Zdjęcia jak zawsze ciekaw. Pozdrawiam i dziękuję za nr 1 w komentarzach u mnie :-).***I do not like barbed wire, I always think that the animals do get hurt by him. The most beautiful is the past. Photos as always curious. I greet and thank you for No. 1 in the comments for me :-). ***

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Peter.

Bob Bushell said...

I suppose that beauty is for the chop one day, give up, and give the old Bull a chance. Lovely photos you have done.

heyBJK said...

Holy cow! :-) That is one big piece of beef! Imagine how much jerky you could get. LOL

Love your new fence! It's gorgeous.

Greetings from Hilda

Okay so, I look at cattle all day long and have never seen one that looked like that. One of the few beef left in Texas?

Janie said...

Oh gee, where is the beef?
You are again cracking me up with you statement of humans and rolls. I have missed so much. You are still the top blogger in my book. What dedication. Can we go riding soon?

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

That is one big bull. Great pics. I like the horses.

Maura :)

Becca said...

Wow! Look at that beef!

stardust said...

I like to see the tranquil pastoral scene at your blog. Cows are grazing and they might be hearing wind chime ringing from somewhere. The fence is beautiful.

ladyfi said...

What a huge bull!

You live on a lovely ranch!

Honest Abe said...

Keeps the critters separated from the critters.

That is one big boy! ;)
xo Catherine

Nancy Claeys said...

Was hoping for a longhorn -- but that boy is gorgeous too. :)

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Very nice photos.

Regards and best wishes

Faye said...

First, is that the smallest bit of greening in your pastures? Dorought letting up some, I hope. And you're right--he's very handsome. You know, it's unfair, but the masculine species don't look so bab with their rolls and wrinkles--or maybe the we women are just more tolerant? :-) Broomtails? What a perfect name for these endearing creatures.

Faye said...

Oops! Try "drought" and "bad". Bad English major should proof her comments.

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

I think he may just fit into my smoker....
