I love the criss-cross wood of that fence - very cool!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

That fence obviously too a lot of work, and the result is quite photogenic!

Karen said...

That fence took a lot of work!

Deb said...

Honest Abe said...

Nice shots. I was looking at split rail fences in Kentucky but cannot find the photos I took.

EG CameraGirl said...

These fences are wonderful. I have never seen one like the first one you posted.

Dianna said...

Interesting fences! And that reminds me, I may have exhausted my "fence photo stash". I'd better go in search....!

Nancy Claeys said...

I'm with Karen -- love the criss-crossey fence! :)

EM Illustrator said...

I like that criss crossed fence. Enjoy your day

Primitive Stars said...

Wow!!!! I love the first fence, looks so rustic, thanks, Francine.

Dicky Bird said...

I've never seen a woven fence like that. It's neat!

Sandra said...

different and unique fencing. don't think i have seen one like it and i shudder to think of the work it would take to build both of them..

Revrunner said...

I think you may have coined a new term for Friday's Fences--"fencery"! :-))

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

love that fence. so different & cool. ( :

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

That is some creative fencery!

Janey and Co. said...

I know that the subject is fences...but I love red barns!

Fancy fences. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Good shots of these barns and fences

Greetings from Holland, Joop

Karen said...

We use a lot of lattice for fences in the "burbs".

Bev said...

OHHH! I love that fence!!!!!!

Barb Brookbank said...

Love the grey wood fence!

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa..Nothing like fences and barns, just have a comfort feeling ..don't ask me why lol!!

Carletta said...

I like the fence although I imagine this type in a more confined and intimate setting - not sprawled across a ranch.
A really good find!

MTWaggin said...

That is some seriously cool fence and the red barn is lovely. I don't know if I'd be wanting to live under those humming power lines though.

Kathy said...

The fence and barns are nice but I would be leery of living under theose power transformers or whatever you call them.

Hanne Bente said...

Nice pictures with fences :) Hanne Bente

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

That is some interesting fencing!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

I don't think I've ever seen fencing done this way but I like it! Lots of land there. Looks like Texas which I am missing these days.

Nancy said...

All that work in the fence really paid off.....fences and barns seem to take us back to simpler times....

Muffy's Marks said...

Wow, a lot of angles to get just right to make that fence. It looks like it should have some sort of vine clinging to it!!

Beth said...

These are beautiful scenes. Great shots.

Tombstone Livestock said...

What kind of animals does that fence keep in? I think my critters would test that fence a lot. It is interesting tho, love the barns, not so much the huge power lines.

Furry Bottoms said...

I like the x fences. They're unique!

Sylvia K said...

I love the lattice fences and the red barn is perfect!

Fireblossom said...

And a very scenic ginormous power line!

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Well I truly have never seen a fence of that design in such a large proportion. Great find! Someone was extremely dedicated.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I like the gray fence and the red barn!

Linda said...

That does seem an unusual fence for your area...based on other fences you've shown. That white one almost looks like a snow fence, but that doesn't seem likely in Texas.

ladyfi said...

That is some fancy fencing. Love the last shot where I can see it in its finery!

don said...

Fine fence shots. I was impressed with your close focus on the fence and sharpness on the barns. Very good shooting.

Linda/patchwork said...

Wow! That fence took some doing.

Great barns, too.

Andy said...

The fencing reminds of a snow fencing that on windy days prevents drifting snow from turning into snow banks.

Jeevan said...

Wonderful! This looks like an olden style of fencing.

Rose said...

I have not seen that type of fencing that I can remember...I like it. Love that closer up view of the second barn.

Raindrops and Daisies said...

Like the lattice style fence Teresa.

Nice barns too.

Happy weekend.

x Fiona

Fjällripan said...

Great and unusual fences :)

Patty Woodland said...

I like the unpainted side better...

edenhills said...

I love the rustic look of the back side of the fence!

Icy BC said...

That's a very awesome looking fence!

DJan said...

You have all these people who make it to your blog before I do! Everything that can be said about your fences has already been said, but I still enjoyed the pictures. :-)

Deanna said...

don't believe I have ever seen a fence made out of lattice...must have found it at a lattice sale!!

Martha Z said...

Not the usual ranch fence. Nice find.

bailey-road.com said...

That's a different kind of fence. I like it!

Bob Bushell said...

Is it the fences or it's barn, anyway, I love 'em.

Daryl said...

love the woven look .. speaking of looks .. did i tell you i love your new 'head shot'

nic.b van es said...

zo heel verschillend ,het zal voor een ander doel geweest zijn?

Lynne said...

"Don't fence me in" isn't their song!

FOREST SNAPPER said...

They love their lattice fence on this farm, it looks a bit dry out there on the land.

Ana Mínguez Corella said...

Great pictures. Beautiful place..

Judy said...

Neat lattice looking fence.

Robin said...

T, interesting! Do you think there was a reason for the lattice or was it strictly decretive?
I don't think I would like to live that close to transmission lines! One might end up glowing in the dark!

DIMI said...

Nice fance Tex!Great shots!
Dimi..

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I agree with the others, they're nice shots, but I don't see what the fence is keeping in--Maybe the power-line? :-)

Betsy Adams said...

Great 'fencery' Theresa.... Hope things are going well down there in Texas. We are having a nice week up here in TN.
Hugs,
Betsy

Giga said...

Ciekawe ogrodzenie i staw w oddali. Pozdrawiam.
I wonder fence and a pond in the distance. Yours.

parker said...

Those folks do like their fences. I would call them "Fence Poor"! Otherwords-They almost have more fences than they need!

Ayu Maselli said...

Theresa, so cute red barn there, the fence unique too.
beautiful photos
have a good day

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I can imagine the first fence took quite a while to build. That red and white fence isn't very attractive :-0

MarmePurl said...

That's a cool looking rustic fence. And I am so partial to big red barns. Great find.

Candy C. said...

Well now, that's a different look for a picket fence but I LIKE it!! Good looking barns too! :)

eileeninmd said...

Neat looking fence, looks like lattice. And I do love the red barn. Great shots!

Chatty Crone said...

That last one is what I call a BIG fence...

Jan n Jer said...

That is a lot of "Fencery"

troutbirder said...

I always liked Robert Frosts view of fences and neighbors...:)

Farm Girl said...

Wow that is a lot of fence, but nice barns.

nyloncamera said...

Nice shots..landscape looks very 'Hollands'

Madge Bloom said...

A bit unusual for a farm fence... love the barns. Thanks T, for joining in 'Rurality Blog Hop #1' Hope to see you next Wednesday for #2...

Red said...

My daughter would call the first fence a "piece of work." It's had many renovations...all of them sad.

Brian King said...

The first one is a bit unusual. It looks like a mixture of wood and chain link. Almost like somebody used whatever was available.

Brk Trt said...

I have noticed you have a good amount of birds on your ranch. Are there quail? I spent a couple of years in San Antonio many years ago, and quail were quite numerous.

Margie said...

Quite atypical. I like it! Made for nice photos T!

Cloudia said...

such big country!

I love your barns all of them. Sorry I am so behind to post comments but of course in the winter and what pictures I take the last of summer is in my picture files. I entered.Besides I love yours and your beautiful Haven place.
Oh how nice you came over to my blog and encourage me. In my rock on to be thin for 2013. Thank you.

Jeanne said...

I am beginning to think that fence is Texas spelled backwards.
I really like that 1st shot.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

That IS a fair amount of fencery!! ;) blessings ~ tanna

Maria said...

I like this wooded type!

Spare Parts and Pics said...

That old fences matches nicely with the bare trees. Have a great weekend!

Lynda said...

That fence is beautiful. I have never seen one like that at a farm or a home.

Kerry said...

Cool fence, not what I think of when I think of Texas. Nice.

Jesh St Germain said...

Never could farm -too many things to take care of!
Hope your hubby could buy the wooden fence per yard, and her didn't have to construct the whole thing himself:)

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, What a unique wooden fence. I don't think I have ever seen one like it. Have a great day tomorrow!

Sally said...

whoa, I'll say. Love it!

Sorry I'm late, the girls are wearin' me out. LOL

Leave It To Davis said...

Now, who'd have thought about using that lattice stuff for a fence???? I know they sell it at Wallyworld to grow vines on. Some people are pretty clever. I guess that's why they say necessity is the mother of invention!

pattisjarrett said...

Looks like a whole lot of fence!

Raggedy Creations said...

very interesting fences Theresa.

Felicia

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
All in all there are quite some miles of all sorts of fences in your State! It is quite a task.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Marie said...

Lots of interesting fencing! neat-looking farm.

SweetMarie said...

That's a lot of criss cross fencing! Great photos!

georgettesullins said...

Goodness, what came first? the barbed wire? the aluminum? or the pickets?

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Neat fencing! And look at that beautiful red barn! Love it.

Barbara said...

Cool fence!

Liz Needle said...

Now that is a gorgeous fence and that barn is to die for. We don't really paint many of our 'sheds' in Australia.

Small City Scenes said...

I love the crookety fence. Lots of fencing going on there. MB

Kris Beskidzki said...

Thank's a lot for posting a comment, I always enjoy the fact when someone from a foreign country leaves a few words under my post. :) I like your blog too, great work, keep doing that!
Greetings from Poland!

Laura. M said...

I'll take the last photo :))
a kiss.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Clever design on that criss cross fence. I wonder who thought of that...the husband or the wife? ;)

RamblingRound said...

Somebody must have gotten tired of barbed wire, and the crisscross fence looks better anyway.

petspeopleandlife said...

Fee that is an awful lot of fancy fencing for stock fencing. Maybe it was free. sure hope so; don;pt see how that kind of fence would keep an animal contained for long.

s.c said...

Nice fencing . It use more wood than is necessary but the result is very pretty for the eye. Thanks for showing.

Betty Manousos said...

i really like that wooden criss cross fence.

Montanagirl said...

I'm a little behind on commenting. I always enjoy your barn shots. Looks like they're right under an "inter-tie" or power line of some sort.

NatureFootstep said...

seems like they don´t want anyone to slip through.

Michaele said...

I just love the burnt red color of the first barn. It is hard to get just the right color - but they did.

Sally in WA said...

I like the criss-cross of the fence. Its a nice touch.

Indrani Ghose said...

Nice composition along with fence.

Jori said...

Lovely criss cross fence, and red barn!

Kim, USA said...

Wow pretty unique fencing and I see another fence in between the barn and the fence ,awesome!

Kim,USA

Elaine said...

Very different looking fences, and yes, a lot of them. I like the combination of the barb wire and wood. Obviously neither was adequate by themselves.

Saun said...

Now that's an interesting fence

Tricia Hays said...

lots of fencery & barnage to be had there!

Thanks for joining =)

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

That poor fence reminds me of some old school prison fencing that went very very wrong hahahah
