Put a Fence In Front of It 18

Just a couple of cell phone shots taken this summer.

First, "Jack" who lives in a cattle pasture just down the road among the mesquite trees.

Next, one of the cute calves next door.

And last, a view across our yard with the horses in the back pasture.
Just for grins, a photo of the horses out in the yard - raiding the bird feeders - yes, "Put a Fence In Front of It", please! :) 
Linking to Friday's Fences

I can't imagine a mouthful of birdseeds. How funny!

Arija said...

I do like the livestock in your area and the things they get up to.

Busy Little Chicken said...

Not sure the horses would agree with you about the fence around the bird feed!! Your 'yard' looks fab!! : )

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

nice 'ass' (play on words or double entendre)Ooops!

'step away from the birdfeeder and no one will get hurt'

have a nice 'thirsdy', mi amiga

georgettesullins said...

What is it they like about the bird feeder? Rubbing their ears on it or the seed? Really? Just goes to show if you hang it at just eye level for them, they will come. Curious your Jem and Zim.

Paula Fraker said...

Well, hello there, Jack... and I'll bet that cute little calf is a BIG cow now! :)
Naughty horses.... *giggle*

Primitive Stars said...

WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK IT, BIRDSEED!!!!!Love the wee calf, so cute, Francine.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Yard and back pasture shot~beautiful! All that green.. aah. Those two stinkers in the bird food, hahaha!

Our photos said...

Beautiful photos!

Midmarsh John said...

Ha ha. I have to do the same sort of thing with Penny. The first time she saw a large bag of bird seed her head was in it grabbing as much as she could hold in her mouth.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Jack is adorable :) he looks super friendly.

EG CameraGirl said...

How nice of you to provide the horses with a little snack. =)

DJan said...

Jack looks like he might be fun. And those bad horses, raiding the birdseed! Love the cute critters, Tex. :-)

Sandra said...

to funny on the bird feeders, you not only have squirrel raiders but horse raiders. good thing the dogs don't like seeds... Jack is beautiful, love him and that baby cow...

Lynn said...

lately I've seen photos of alpacas, dogs, cats, squirrels and now horses stealing bird seed, there should be a law :-). Love Jack's hangout.

KB Bear said...

I had no idea that horses would raid birdfeeders! That is too funny!

Molly The Wally said...

Hmm how long before they get round the fence we say? Lovely place you have.
Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Montanagirl said...

That little calf with his spots is so cute. I didn't know horses would eat bird seed, but on the other hand, the bad winter we had a couple years ago, the deer were coming right into town - to my yard - and then were eating birdseed too. As were the rabbits.

Anvilcloud said...

I find this very aFENCEive.

Linda R said...

Loving your photos this morning. You have me smiling. Happy Thursday to you!

Hugs~

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

You have quite a view of different creatures to keep you busy if the birds are all full. Jack looks like he's waiting for his handout as is the calf!

ladyfi said...

Jack is adorable!

Farm Girl said...

Oh I like looking at things around your place. This one is very nice.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Jack and the calf is so cute :)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Horses are naughty,and spoiled BIG pets that want to snack on anything they think its 'theirs'.
Hugs,
Mariette

Sylvia K said...

I love your four-legged friends for the day -- all of them!! And the horses eating the birdseed made me giggle! A great start for my day!

MarkD60 said...

Isn't it winter there?

RoeH said...

How can anyone dismiss those adorable faces.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

This time, the fences take a backseat to the critters behind (or outside of) them. Love the horses at the bird feeder. That's a pretty view across your yard, too.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Beautiful critters! Jack looks very friendly. You have a lovely yard. How wonderful it must be to look out at your horses. And I would never think horses would raid the bird feeder--so funny! :-)

Bill said...

It looks like there are some inquisitive animals around your place, which can sometimes lead to mischief. ;)

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

I love how curious Jack and the calf are!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I love how the calf has the two brown patches around the eyes. Talk about a cutie!

Rose said...

I would probably find it tempting to fence in the yard! Just kidding...well, I think I am...not so sure. When I was a kid, I seen these plans for a 'barn'....it had room for a couple horses and a tack room, then the upstairs was for living in. I thought that was the ideal setup.

Bob Bushell said...

I love them, aweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Janey and Co. said...

Calf next door is a cutie...and looks like he wants to come over and play!

Love the animal shots. So, horses are like really tall squirrels raiding the feeders?

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Love the photo looking across your yard and the one of the horses raiding the bird feeders.
Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season.

don said...

I never would have thought the horses would go for the feeder! Very good phone shots.

Gail Dixon said...

Horses going after bird seed? New one on me!

Love the views of your property. You are so blessed to live on such a spread. A little slice of heaven on earth.

Irma said...

Great many animals near your house.

joeh said...

It never fails, put out some seed for the birds and those pesky horses come and hog it all.

Nancy J said...

I like the fences, and fancy your horses eating bird food!! Your yard is fab, do you mow all that lovely green lawn?? Greetings from Jean.

Cranberry Morning said...

Forget the fences, I love the animals behind them! :-) Aren't they sweet!

Leovi said...

Nice ass, like "Jack"!

Icy BC said...

Love your horse photos, and the last one is awesome..yes, put a fence in front of it :-)

edenhills said...

These shots have me longing for green and spring babies!

stiefbeen said...

prachtige opnames wat leuk dat de paarden zelfs voor de voederplaats gaan.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Your neighbors are so adorable! It must be so entertaining to be surrounded by animals.

Mama Zen said...

That last shot cracked me up!

Judy said...

That last shot is too funny. I have to put the cat food up so high so Sadie doesn't get it and she still manages to find a way.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Would you be humming along to, "Don't Fence Me In," while taking shots like that?

Ms. A said...

Your horses eat bird feed? How funny!

Sketchbook Wandering said...

I didn't know horses raided bird feeders too! Aaah, those good old days of summer, so far away from here, time wise & distance wise...

I don't know if animals know happiness but these critters look well-tended and content.

So horses do have something in common with squirrels. Love that Jack. He's a good looking dude.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Gosh and I fretted when the squirrels emptied our bird feeders too fast. Your beautiful raiders would do a quicker job! Love the neighbor critters too! (I think Jack wants a carrot or something.)

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Some cute neighbors you have there! And a couple of beautiful bird seed raiders. :) xo

Small City Scenes said...

You have so much 'fun' with your horses---they are beauties.
Fences make good neighbors. MB

DeniseinVA said...

You have the cutest animals!

Hilary said...

What a sweet selection. Jack is adorable and so is the calf. The horses put me in mind of what's been happening around here the last few days.. deer are eating from our feeders.

Red said...

You found some friendly characters who are willing to pose for you.

Karen said...

You have great neighbours!

genie said...

The fun and games with your animals never seems to end. They have the best of all worlds with you. Happy horses.

Melissa said...

I know fences are very important there. I find myself usually trying to keep them out of the photo, but they are definitely part of the scene!

Raggedy Creations said...

poor jack looks lonely.

Paula said...

I kinda like Jack but you can keep the Mesquite trees.

Stephanie said...

Nice shots of the animals.

Randy said...

The calves are so cute.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Such cuties! The horses know no boundaries. :)
You live in a gorgeous part of our world….I know you enjoy it too!

Jack looks like he's waiting for a buddy. Handsome fella! It would take a heck of a fence to keep your escape artists out of the feeders.

Betty Manousos said...
