Love the stars.
so cool. i like them both. so spicy. ( :
something about the second one reminds me of a railroad trestle! And you're right: the first one looks a little "city-fied"!
Beautiful fence you show - really like # 2 picture :) Hanne Bente
I assume they still use those gates or poles that cross in the ground that cows or horses won't walk across on? They used to have them everywhere in Arizona and Texas. I don't remember ever seeing a real swing open gate.
Both of them are great , I think the second one is my favorite ! Hope you have a wonderful day !
I love that second one! I need to dig up the couple that I found when we were there in January and post them.
I know what the Northern Star is, but which is the Southern?Great theme, great photos.
I like the Southern Star ranch with it's long dirt driveway.
I love the diagonal lines of that first gate.
I think the one with all of the fence would be a bear to keep white. I like the other one though, it seems like it fits the neighborhood.
Odd, but, nicely done.
Texans certainly know how to create grand entrances. ;)
#2 is nice.
That first one is a bit ornate- it would be perfect for a rancher I knew back in the day when they used Box O Ranch!
I also like the black one better. The other is a bit too fancy for me. It would be OK around the house maybe.JB
They are marvelous looking and I like the star.
Very exotic as we don't have gates like this in Europe.
The Lone Star State is showing off its stars!!!! Great gates.Hugs,Betsy
The Southern Star Ranch is in the wrong hemisphere. The other belongs at a country club. Where have you been traveling lately?
Is there a big business in making these kinds of gates and fences? You don't see much of this stuff here where I am (Minniesnowda) Do some people make their own gates and fences?Cheers and hugs,Jo and Stella
It is pretty neat the way ranchers express themselves out at the end of those loooooooooooonnnnng driveways by having a unique gate. I like it that they're so different from one another.
I'm not at all fond of white fences, unless they are the low, picket types. Southern Star did a nice job on the entrance!
i really like the Southern Star, that is cool. i like the first photo because it is like the road is leading right to the thunderclouds.
serie magnifica dos portões, os mesmos estão a condizer com o ambiente em seu redor.obrigado pela visita.
A fine series around the "star" theme. Around here we seem to have far fewer gates to property than you do.I suspect the "long star" pride has much to do with that.
Great composition on that first shot. So, tell me...why are the gate entrances so high?
I like the lone star on top.
Wow and some seriously gray skies too!
Druga otwarta brama zaprasza do wejścia. Pozdrawiam.The second open door invites you to enter. Yours.
The stars make the fences.
I think the second one is my favorite but the I love them both :)
I like both gates, bu the first is a little busy for my eyes. :)
Great fences! Wouldn't even mind being "fenced in" by these!!
People want what they want and sometimes it doesn't fit where they live
I like the star gate too, I think it is the rick-rack on the sides that makes it attractive.
Southern Star gets my vote.Felicia
Really nice gates. Love the dark, moody clouds in the first two shots. Have a great day!
Nothing quite says Texas like a big gate with a star!
Gee Theresa, you must be the fastest gun in the West! I was still fiddling with the side bar when you comment flew in. Thanks friend.
We love TexGate. The second on was our fav.Have a terrific Thursday.Best wishes Molly
Those are really nice looking gates.
Great find.Simple yet nice.
These are snazzy gates! Love the stars.
Really like them both! So different from what you see around here.
Wonderful doors! I like this composition! Beautiful pictures!
lone star gates, for the lone star state!! did someone already say that??forgive me, i am tired and lack creativity today!!i like the "new" one, it has more of a texas vibe!!
Nice gates, I like the top one :)
I love them all.
I like the second one best; it looks more like I think Texas should look. :)But, what do I know; I haven't lived there since I was a wee child.xoxo
I love those gates. Nothing like that here!
Funny to these gates to see :-)I think they are nice too :)
Though I love the second gate the best, I really love the first picture. The clouds look so cool!
T, I agree with you on the first and like the second too!
Have you ever thought of putting one up at the Runaround? :)
I really like the name of the last one. Thanks for the feedly tip. I'm playing with it. :)
Beautiful, huge gate.Great pictures.Regards
ja de tweede hoort meer in het gebied thuis.
I'm not really up to date on ranch entrances, so I couldn't really say. Your images are good though, I like the top one the best.
Nice gates....different from our small ones :-)
Love the individuality of all the wonderful gates and entrances where you live! Love that second one! The first one reminds me of 'Green Acres' with Zha Zha Gabor. I know I didn't spell that right, but you know what I mean! ha ha! xx
Oh you know I love them both with the Texas star......Francine.
I like the last one also...love the star!
Very preety gates!!Beautiful pictures!Have a lovely day!Dimi..
I really like the Southern Star Ranch gate! I agree, the white one looks like it's more suited to a suburban lawn.
Agree! Those folks at the Southern Star Ranch did it right!
What a novial idea to put a lone-star on a Texas fence :)
I like the Southern Star one too:@)
I really like the first gate. whoever designed that spent a lot of time to come up with a very and detailed and balanced design.
The stars are cool and they look great on the gates. The stars are all over Texas and not just the ones in the sky!
Dearest Theresa,Those are indeed lone star gates! Thanks for sharing your great photos.Hugs,Mariette
Great Texas gates. I really like the second one too.
The second one is very interesting.
There's no way I can read 74 comments before me. But I was out hiking all day so I can't be held accountable. I love them both, because YOU showed them to me. :-)
Nice gates! Is there a "South Fork Ranch" or a "Southern Cross Ranch" down there? I was a Dallas (J.R. Ewing) fan back in the day.
That star is very showy! Love the pure white paint!
Those really are lone stars and I love both of them. That first gate and fence does look out of place but it is pretty.
I hope the mailbox is by the road and not on the house! That would be a long way to go every day.
The Southern Star gate looks like it opens up into the wide wild blue wonder. I like it but of course I would I'm a born and bred Texan.
I really like the second one too!
I like all of them.
I love that name...Southern Star Ranch! ( it immediately makes me think of Southern Man by Neil Young, but that is not the only reason.)
One thing we don't have a shortage of here is stars!!!
Southern Star has a real ring to it doesn't it! I love the stars!
I like these, Tex.ALOHA from HonoluluComfort Spiral ~ > < } } ( ° > <3
Just love the first one with the diagonal lines! And there's something about the white that makes it look clean and neat.
Is there another term for those ranch-type gates? I've been trying to think of it.Great pics, BTW.
The gates are nice but I LOVE the stormy sky in the first shots! :)
I agree with you. That second gate is attractive. Nice to see the name of one's home across a clear sky!
I like them all. I would like to visit Texas one day, maybe when my husband retires from his job. betsy
Great fencing, to protect the animals better.
I am always impressed by the amazing gates you have in Texas. We have very few here, but of course we don't have a lot of livestock to fence in either.
Love the Southern Star gate especially!
It looks great and beautiful.
Texas gates certainly are individual and varied.
several times you've photographed fences that were merely the ranch name with some small side gates ... i wondered then who or what they were intended to keep out .. so this one seems quite adequate to this new yorker
You show us things with a different eye than we would normally see things. Thank you.
How did I miss these? I am liking Southern Star Ranch's gate!
Those are cool!
these are great gates!...and you can never go wrong with a lone star beer!
I do like the Lone Star Ranch gate (can you call it a gate when there's no gate?), but it seems the star should be a little larger. Nitpicky, huh?
Reminded me of the saying "the stars sure are out tonight".
The first one is nice, but you're correct, something isn't quite right with the overall look. I like the second one, too!
Another week with great photos. You never run out of good ones!
Oooh, I like the last one. We want to have a gate to our property someday!
I love the Lone Star when it's in the Lone Star State (like these are)...it's funny to see them somewhere else...like in Florida. I see the emblem often around here...and it's weird to me ...Unless the people are transplants from Texas
No shortage of creativity when it comes to Texas fences. Agree with you, TWG--that first fence looks more suited to the 'burbs.
Lovely gates there. Wouldn't get away with many of those in this country unfortunately what with 'health and safety' rules and planning laws. I do envy the freedom you have to 'do your own thing'.
Simply neat fencing! Liked the southern star ranch arch :)
Texas must be full of Lone Star gates, but these two are pretty cool. Thanks for visiting my blog this week.
I do like the first one, but you're right, it looks out of place in that setting. It's missing a mansion and a couple of BMW's. The second one is great! It fits in much better!
How pretty the gates and entrances are. I like that they aren't the stereotypical "ranch" style. The beauty is appealing to the visitor.
