Put a Fence In Front of It 19

Seems I can't let a Thursday pass without a fence post (even if Friday's Fences is temporarily off-line due to technical difficulties). I came to a stop behind a few other vehicles on a Farm-to-Market Road due to a construction flagman. This lovely paint came up to the fence line to check me out. I rolled down my passenger side window, said hello and snapped a few photos with my cell phone.
 He (or she) seemed bemused for a few moments...
but when other cars started arriving behind me, he hightailed it out of there.

Oh, you just KNOW I love those pics! I would have been snapping away too at that beautiful sight!
(I didn't know Friday's Fences was down, and I'm still missing Barn Charm...!)

Mike said...

Horsing around on Thursday?

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm guessing the horse knew a friendly face when it saw one so hurried on over, :)

messymimi said...

Maybe he regretted the fence between you, until the other vehicles arrived.

Jeanne said...

Such a lovely site! He like the look of you and was hoping you would come over with a carrot! Hoping it doesn't snow today!

Chyba mu się spodobałaś, bo przyszedł do Ciebie ten śliczny koń. Dziękuję, że mi podałaś linka do Tłumacza. Niestety on też u mnie nie działa. :(. Pozdrawiam.
I think he likes you, because you came to this lovely horse. Thank you that you handed me a link to the Translator. Unfortunately, it also does not work for me. : (. Yours.

I'm learning a lot about horses (and fences) from your blog. I "paint" must be a horse with a stripe on its face like that. It's a good name.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I had forgotten the way Texas and South Dakota and some of the other states we've stayed in have those farm-to-market roads. Driving them was the greatest way to explore the areas....

The horse is beautiful and knew you were a friend!

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

what a cutie.
