One Ranch's Fences

I thought this was a simple but great looking theme.



I'd hate to keep up that paint job, though.

I agree with you about not wanting to have to keep repainting that fence. :)

Buttons said...

Oh I like simple and great and it truly is. Love the old bush hog(?) behind it. Painting that would be a big job and not simple. B

Joop Zand said...

Second and third shot are very good Teresa.

Wish you a lovely day.

Greetings, Joop

Paula said...

Ooooh~ this one is very neat! I love how they painted the wheels red to contrast the white fence... beautiful!

Yeh, the painting would be a bit much. Great use of wagon wheels, though!

Deb said...

Love it

Jeevan said...

This looks simple and neat fencing! Sure it’s not easy to maintain it quite pretty.

Karen said...

Ask me how much I hate to paint.

A Quiet Corner said...

Bet the employment rate gets some help from those owners!...:)JP

Candy C. said...

It is pretty but, you are right, painting would be a chore!

Lynne said...

I liked it too . . . Every time I see a large fenced area, painted white . . . precisely my thought, oh my, a ton of upkeep!

Muffy's Marks said...

Fences~~~ is their purpose to keep critters inside their confines, or to keep critters out of their boundary?

Molly The Wally said...

Now we got that rawhide theme tune in our heads. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Kerri said...

I agree! Nice!

Jana said...

I love white fences, but you are right they are a pain to keep up.

Dianne said...

it's beautiful in its simplicity!

Madge Bloom said...

Love those red wheels...

Daryl said...

if it was your fence/gate you could always try a little Huck Finn trick .

DJan said...

Very nice! And I agree with you about not wanting to keep up that paint job. It sure looks good, though. :-)

Łucja-Maria said...

Hi Teresa!
Fantastic ranch.
Very beautiful and well cared for.
A wonderful photographic series.

parker said...

I like the neatness and sturdiness of this fence. Great appeal and built to last!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, I would call that a pretty intense fence. Hope the color is like those sidings that "last forever" ... John :)

Pam :) said...

Great design with the wheels but I wouldn't paint it. I'd let rust for the effect :)

Primitive Stars said...

Morning......wonderful Texas looking fence.....I also would let it weather......rustic look.....a blessings Francine.

ladyfi said...

So simple and elegant.

Sandra said...

you are right, have to use Tom Sawyers idea for fence painting on this one. i like the wagon wheels a lot

Jan n Jer said...

Great fence...love those wheels!!!

Beth said...

It is simple but very classy.

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

Very classy is right. I love that look.

Wagon Wheels.

Great pictures!

Montanagirl said...

I don't do painting if I can avoid it, but I like the red wheels!

Gail said...

Wish I had that kind. It would take one big storm to need repair on that. Beautiful.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Could always let it turn into a beautiful shade of rust.

Kathy said...

That's really a nice fence. Is it metal?

bailey-road.com said...

I like it too!

Discovery School at First Baptist Heath said...

i agree with the painting... but it is pretty..

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Very simple but authentic looking fence with those wheels. Painting by the mile...
Hugs,
Mariette

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Love the wagon wheels they have incorporated into it!

Lots of painting.....

Κωστής Τζαγκαράκης said...

Beautiful.

Patty Woodland said...

Seriously

Furry Bottoms said...

Am I being watched?

Paula said...

Neat! I see they belong to Farm Bureau too.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Agreed! On both thoughts.
I kept up a paint job like that in my teens. No more.. :)

Karen said...

It sure looks tidy, I was thinking the same thing about painting it.

barbara l. hale said...

I love those round things in the fence...wheels, I guess they are called. Yep. I would hate to be the one to paint all that, too.

Rose said...

That is a nice fence....simple but beautiful.

Bob Bushell said...

Yah poo, it is easy to keep up the paintwork on the gates and the fence, get someone else, lol.

troutbirder said...

No thanks to painting fences though Robert Frost wrote in a poem how they have their value...:)

Sylvia K said...

Yep, Bob's right -- give someone else the paint brush! Great looking fence for the day regardless of the paint job!

Sandy said...

Yeah, lots to paint. But, I do like the iron wheels.

Indrani Ghose said...

Great framing of the scene.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Pretty sure if that was here it would never get painted....

don said...

A very interesting series of picture of these fences. It is interesting how often people select old wheels as an element in gates and fences.

Icy BC said...

They are fabulous looking though!

nic.b van es said...

simpel kan juist heel mooi zijn.

Annette said...

I love how the wagon wheels are set in the fence.

Red said...

Always amazed at what is done with fences and gates there. So I guess people say we need more than just a fence. Make it interesting.

Farm Girl said...

Pretty fences. The old mailbox that used to be here had a wagon wheel like that to hold it up. Then someone came along and stole it. Some guy was even trying to get a old plow in his trunk when we walked up. It is crazy out here. He told us he thought it was abandoned. :)

val's alentejo blogspot.com said...

This is an amazing fence.. how i would love to have one like that around my property..
sure would be a lot of work to paint..
I like the two wheels at the gate entrance.

petspeopleandlife said...

Wagon wheels always look good to me as part of a gate or fence. I have a few that I've never used for anything. I got the wheels via my grandpa to my dad and then to me and someday they'll go to my son.

Please enter me in your heron give away.

Thanks,
Yvonne

Laura. M said...

Paint all that's a lot of work ... I would not want to do it :))
a kiss

Evelyn S. said...

(I wear my scrolling finger out getting to the bottom of the comments on your blog!) I think those metal fences look great! Until I checked out the last image, I thought the metal was everywhere, but I can see that it's the "facade"---and a very pretty facade it is!

edenhills said...

Love the wheels on those fences!

Cher' Shots said...

Beautiful fencing! I wonder if it is a composite material making it maintenance free?! I saw a ranch in Mo. done in the white composite and it was gorgeous.
'love & hugs from afar'

Debbie said...

ooohhhh i just love the third image, those wisps of hay are just perfectly beautiful!!

pretty red wheels!!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Very neat! When my momma was still living, she adored wagon wheels in yards and always wanted a pair for her garden...she would have loved these fence images~

FOREST SNAPPER said...

it would spoil a few weekends painting this lot. great photos.

Tanya said...

simple clean lines....love it! yeah, painting would be a b! wonder if they have kids?!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

The wagon wheel design makes wonderful accents. I'm with you on that paint job! Ugh.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I like the old wheels. Definitely would not want that paint job!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Painting anything outside is a bad idea, that's why I like the 'weather' look so much :-) Cool wheels!

Margie said...

Really like the red wheels against the white fence!

Inger said...

I agree, that's a great fence.

SweetMarie said...

Love the wheels. I'd be painting alone. LOL

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

White fences are always so gorgeous to see, until you think of the work involved! (I saw some plastic white ones the other day, don't know how that would work). And yes, very nice gates there.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Nice fences and so clean...Yes T its in a way sad. I would really loved to take pictures of him in better light at daytime.
We must have same rules all areas an also think about the future. We dont have so much moose so we can shoot a lot, its all regulated from the state.
I grown up with hunting but I think very much to take care of the wildness we have

DIMI said...

Ellie said...

I love those big old wheels, but the painting - not so much!!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Love wagon wheels! Great looking fence...I'm like you, I'd hate to have to keep it painted!

Maple Lane said...

Very nice pictures.
I'm taking a little time away from the computer; hope you have a nice weekend. Mildred

Ms. A said...

No kidding, that would be a chore!

Jeanne said...

I love it when people take pride in the little things. Creating a simple work of art not so much for themselves to see, but to share with the passersby.

Linda said...

This is a very pretty fence. It does show the owners' pride in keeping it looking nice. The wagon wheels are a great added touch.

Michelle said...

I wouldn't want to keep up that paint job either!

Cloudia said...

once you finish, you begin again!

I sure did enter that contest of yours:) It's awesome! When I saw these pics today, I began to hum that Journey tune....."Wheels in thesky keep on turning....."

S. J. Qualls said...

Cool, I like the wheels! You're right about the painting though. Whew!

Jesh StG said...

Love your close up of the wheels in your third capture!

Marie said...

I love the wagon wheel motif. These are nice!

Kateri said...

Love how the wheels are integrated into the fence. Very pretty.

Randy said...

These are great.

Carletta said...

I like how the wheels make it their own!
A good paint sprayer and the job wouldn't be too bad. :)

pattisjarrett said...

You're not kidding! It looks nice, though.

The wheels are a great accent on the fence!

Dearest Theresa,
I love the white fence with red wheels and lovely fluffy clouds(^_^)v

Oh, painting job must be a tough one with the huge space of yours!!!

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Riet said...

I love the idea of the wagonwheels in the fences. Nice changes now and then.
Have a nice weekend

I never thought about the repainting of the fence 0 that would be a lot of work! sandie

SandyCarlson said...

What a great design of a fence.

Betty Manousos said...

what an awesome design of a fence!
such a beautiful fence!

Brian King said...

That is nice! Not too cluttered or overdone. Here they use paint trucks to paint all the miles of horse farm fences.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

do you think the wheels are to help the fence roll away. ha. ha!!
