Texas Fencery

A gate to a hidden-away ranch.
The side fencing.
I count 4 different fencing styles in one place.
And a little barn in the distance, tucked in between.

A blissful Texas scene, in a heavy-on-the-fences sort of way. :)
Linking to Friday's Fences

You gotta wonder why they didn't bother to take the old one down.

ladyfi said...

Such lovely scenery!

Janey and Co. said...

I always hate it when I can't at least get a glimps of the house. With all of the fencing...I don't think they want us to come in!

Linda said...

You managed to cover all the bases in one shot! These people obviously like their privacy...can't say I blame them!

Beth Edwards said...

my question is : are they thinking that the 1st fence does not do enough so they continue to add more fences until they feel protected enough? i wonder? ha. ha!! (:

Maple Lane said...

Love the little barn in the distance!

Sandra said...

i like the buildings tucked back in the trees, and the four fences are beautiful to me. a collage of fence

Beautiful photos.

Die Zäune sind bestimmt noch aus alter Zeit, immer wieder hier und da ein bisschen geflickt...

Darcie (My Modern Country) said...

That is quite a fence combo!

Buttons said...

I truly wish we had some of those sturdy fences and gates the other night. Long story:)
Great shots Tex. B

Jill said...

Beautiful gate with a lovely, long drive. Perfect.

Molly The Wally said...

Gosh you must get some terrific rides out there , everywhere is so big. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Tombstone Livestock said...

Love the clouds and the blue sky. Looks like there was a temporary fence patch that has become more permanent that temporary.

Daryl said...

looks like something my husband would do, ''lets just 'fix' this part here in the meantime .. ''

Dicky Bird said...

I see they used a small hog panel to patch between the fence and gate. This year our little lambs could squeeze between areas - we used all kinds of stuff to patch these holes...I think I remember someone else doing that when their pond was dry....wonder who that was....Blessings from Wisconsin.

Lynne said...

Fence me in . . . kind of . . .

orchid said...

Dearest Theresa,
OMG, huge huge ranch and long gate way☆☆☆ Reminds me of how huge your country is compared to our tiny country like me(*^_^*)
Lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Donna said...

Four fences in one place - that has to be a record, LOL!

Karen said...

I have a question. It's clear that in Texas, gates and fences are very popular and most have them. Is it mostly to keep livestock in place or is the ornamentation of it the main reason? I ask this because it appears there are many "driveway gates" for lack of a better term.

S. J. Qualls said...

?OCD?

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I love those long driveways.I know that in my part of the world we don't like them because it is a lot of work to keep them clear of snow in winter.

bailey-road.com said...

I love the gate and the long driveway. I imagine the house is back in the trees, where it's shady and cool.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

I like it Tex! I love that top shot with the wonky barbed wire. That always makes for an interesting shot. I think they were too worn out putting up the new to take down the old each time!

Primitive Stars said...

Hi, love that rustic gate, long driveway and sweet little barn way out yonder. You always find such interesting things with that camera of yours, keep on shooting, LOL, with that camera. Blessings Francine.

John's Island said...

I like these fence photos. Very interesting. And thank you kindly for the nice "welcome back" yesterday! Have a great day Tex.

DJan said...

Nice fencery, as usual! :-)

Paula said...

*haha* It's kinda like they couldn't decide which type of fence to put in that corner! (Either that, or they just didn't want to tear the old down to build the new! *haha*)

Deb said...

a mysterious fortress...great shots...

Jan n Jer said...

Love the view on the first shot!!!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I always thought a long, winding driveway where the house was hidden, would be very cool to own.

Muffy's Marks said...

I often wonder where the lane will lead, if the gate were to be opened for visitors!!

Dianne said...

I immediately thought of 'Long and Winding Road' by the Beatles

this is fantastic!!
I want a road that leads to my house

Comment1 said...

Hahaha! Those four fences in one place is hilarious! I guess you have to make sure. Or maybe it's where they go to commune with their ancestors.

rainfield61 said...

It is so deep inside after the fence.

So deep that a long story can be written.

Joop Zand said...

Very nice shots again..... that first one has also a very nice depth.

Greetings, Joop

Margie said...

For sure T!

Beth said...

Nice shots and the scenery is beautiful!

MTWaggin said...

Call it "reinforcement"! LOL

Annnightflyer said...

Does make you wonder where that drive goes,is it a plantation or a cabin or just a plain house.LOL we'll never know.

pattisjarrett said...

They must have a hard time keeping something in, or out! The gate is pretty. I keep forgetting to tell you I like the new pic you posted.

Mama Zen said...

Got a little ingenuity going in that second shot!

Farm Girl said...

Well, it looks like around here, people just build fences upon fences. I bet my next door neighbors have three or four different kinds all wired together.

Karen said...

I like the hidden ranch. These people like their privacy.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Fence so far away from the ranch? We dont have that here in Sweden...

Patty Woodland said...

Once we crossed the Mississippi it seemed it was a world of fences

laura.forestdreams:) said...

(you are my first stop theresa...trying to get back on track...)

i like that first one...with the 'sunny' center motif, and the looooong drive...

and the fence-conglomerate is pretty funny...(like something sam might do, ha!)

Sylvia K said...

There surely in no shortage of fences of all kinds in Texas!! Love the first one -- they obviously don't like living close to the road!!

Hanne Bente said...

Beautiful fence you show.
The first thought I best on :)

Łucja-Maria said...

Dear Tex!
Your photos are always beautiful.
I love to watch.

Evelyn S. said...

Lots of fences in big country!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I can't help but want to go running down that long driveway in the first pic!

don said...

I like the honest feel of this gate and the variety of fencing. There is something so practical about mixing the styles and patchwork in places. Nice post.

wayside wanderer said...

I notice the fences I pass now because of you.

wayside wanderer said...

I want a bunting in my "soup."

Rose said...

All of these are appealing..don't know which view of the second gate that I like best...and I like the simpleness of the first one.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Great 4 in 1 fences! And I always love a driveway with grass growing up the middle!

Tammy said...

Interesting how they just kept piling the fences on...think they are trying to keep an escape artist animal from getting out? My neighbors had a similar set up, but their dog always found a new way out:)

Bob Bushell said...

Nice fences.

Cher' Shots said...

We passed a place yesterday that sold some very unique gates. Wish we would have had time to stop in but we had an appointment to keep. Maybe next time. YOU would have loved it.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I love the 'Texas scenes' They really should all be in a book!

Sandy said...

I like the place tucked in behind the trees.

Ms. A said...

Is the heavy duty one new? Wonder why they haven't taken the post and barb down?

edenhills said...

That looks like how I have to hobble some of my fences up to keep the goats in!

Barb said...

Great long driveway!

Icy BC said...

The gate is pretty, and the fences are interesting!

Maura @ Kisiwa Creek Photography said...

Hello Theresa! "Heavy on the fences" is putting it mildly...they aren't taking any chances in this corner are they..wow. It's good to be visiting you again...it's been a long time! I hope you are well and enjoying some cooler wetter weather. I'll have to catch up on your posts to see what's been going on down there in your part of Texas. I hope you have a wonderful evening...take care of yourself. Maura :) (Lilac Lane Cottage ;)

Debbie said...

you have such an artful way of saying things!!

these are beautiful....my eye drifts to the blue sky and the pretty clouds!!

Fábio Martins said...

So many space to scream :)

Rita said...

I like the mystery of first one, but that second one seems kind of schizophrenic. ;)

Rohrerbot said...

The landscape is something out of a storybook. I could spin around in that grass(with jeans of course)

Bernadine said...

Love the iron work on the entrance gate. It's interesting to see the fences they left up, too! I love to imagine what kind of house is tucked away in the woods when I see a long path like that.

Chatty Crone said...

The fence on land that huge has to cost a fortune - he probably uses whatever he can get. lol

Gert said...

Love the gate! And all the fences too...the skies are so pretty!

Blessings,
Gert

Beautiful! Love the entry gate, but the others have me scratching my head. Hmmmm....

Sorry for the multiple comments, but Blogger was giving me an error!

Sally said...

Now, see? That's what I'm talkin' about. Love it! :)

Candy C. said...

That's funny! I imagine they'll take down all the old fencing...some day! ;-)

Sandra said...

Makes me want to go to Texas!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Aaah -- where's the house! I hate when I can't even see it at all....(I know that's exactly what the owners want, but I don't think it's fair ;>)

dr momi said...

Love the barn peeking through the fence :-) Great shot!

Ellie said...

Wow, that is one long driveway :)

Inger said...

Did they want to make sure with the four different fences? Great stuff as always.

Nita Davis said...

Very intriguing! Makes me wonder if the home hidden is ornate or rustic.

eileeninmd said...

Great captures of your Texas fences! I really like the shot of the long driveway!

Robin said...

T, very nice!

Red said...

Now I like the first gate but you'd never get a combine though it. Now maybe this isn't a grain farm so it doesn't matter.

Lois Evensen said...

If all else fails, add another kind of fence. ;) Fun images.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, I think sometimes it is a matter of what works best to keep the critters in and varmints out. Have a great Friday tomorrow!

Linda said...

The gate is beautiful. The rest of the fencing...not so much. :)

Deb Crecelius said...

All the styles of fences...use what you have :)

Kim, USA said...

Long driveways I so like but not here in Michigan it is very hard to plow when it is snow time. ^_^ Nice fences.

Kim,USA

Saun said...

Love the gate at the entry to the property.

SandyCarlson said...

These are great!

Angela said...

Love the old fences! Love the long driveway too! My house is a littler farther back on our property but I'd love for it to be even farther away from the road and hidden.

Rebecca said...

I love how you make fencing so interesting! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Carletta said...

That's one substantial fence in the foreground so the other one seems hardly necessary. It would look so much more elegant without the old one. :)
My house sits back from the road too. I kinda like it that way. :)
Lovely skies overhead the day you took these!

Randy said...

I like the long driveway in the first shot.

bj said...

Fences, skies...everything really looks wonderful in your photos.

DeniseinVA said...

Great fence shots! I would love to hop over them and explore.

Paula said...

wow the posts in the fence in the first picture are leaning a little.

Kathy said...

I often wonder about the places that hide beyond the curve. I have a relative who married into the area's most prestigious family, and they have only one daughter, who is hosting a family reunion next month. I've never been to her place but I hear she lives where you can't see it from the road. I've appointed myself the official family photographer for the reunion!

Now as far as those fences, you just can't take too many chances in letting your livestock get loose!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

Surely we don't see such fences around here. We went back and forth to Atlanta today = 2½ hrs one way.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

BlueShell said...

Oh, I do love all those fences...the fist one is great!
Have a wonderful day, dear!
xoxo

Brian King said...

I like the iron gate and the long driveway. They definitely have a hodge podge of fencing!

Marco Alpha said...

Hello,
Nice gates!! I like the big beautiful landscapes in your neighborhood. Wonderful shots!!

Many greetings,
Marco

Linda R said...

I love the first fence shot. And the long road in.. Nice shot..

Pamela Gordon said...

The first photo is very nice. It's interesting to see the 4 different types of fencing in the second photo.

Laura.M said...

They look like the photos you see in the movies :))
Very good perspective of the first
a kiss.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

Just love those Texas fences.

Tanya said...

i guess you just use what you have on hand when it comes to patching up fences! very "green" of them :)

Jeevan said...

Lovely driveway and interesting ones on fencing!

Betty Manousos said...

those texas fences rock!!

xo

Revrunner said...

Guess that first fence must be electronically controlled?

Montanagirl said...

Really like that first one. Simplistic, yet caught my eye.

Elaine said...

Now that was value for money - 4 for 1. Oh to have a long driveway like that!

georgettesullins said...

Double security. You never know where one needs mending until the cows escape.

Daniel LaFrance said...

I like the first image best. I think it might have something to do with the other fence in the background.

Genie said...

The first one is beautiful and then they sorta go downhill. The landscapes are beautiful. genie

Roan said...

Perhaps there is an elephant or mule escape artist in there somewhere, which required a sturdier fence. Interesting.

Marie said...

Gorgeous photos! I especially love the first one!

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

All these fences...I'm beginning to think you live Texas :0
