Do they raise hogs for ham?
Rick and Randy? Rafael and Rachel?
And the last one. Is this where we can find Mork and Mindy now?

Sandra said...

i like the double R gate but would like to live on the M and M because i do love those litle candys

Cranberry Morning said...

I love those! They remind me of all the hours I spent watching westerns when I was a kid!

Buttons said...

Dearest Theresa,
Double R's entrance looks beautiful!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I actually took a couple of fence pictures, including in Texas, while trucking!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Of course, I like the 'shape of Texas' in the gate iron best of all.

Brian King said...

That's a little different having the wagon wheels on the outside corners. I like the Texas outline on the second gate!

Tanya Breese said...

i like hamby's with the little cows :)

magnoliasntea said...

Love both gates, but Double R is classy with the stone sides. Thanks for the great linkup. Have a great Thursday!

eileeninmd said...

There seems to be lots of great fences in Texas! I love them all, the wheels, cows and the r&r entrance! I have to go out and find some fences!

I've always wanted a ranch sign. Maybe one of these days...

Crissi said...

Nice day!!!

Lindsjö taxar said...

Very nice! We dont have tradition to build gates and fences like that

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, wow!!! all are beautiful, enjoy these gate posts, Blessings Francine.

Molly The Wally said...

BOL Hamby's sounds like it should be on a pig farm and M&M's made us chuckle. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Julia said...

Sorry for not leaving comments lately. Not enough time to visit everyone.
I love the Double R Ranch gate. I love arches. Very inviting.
Hugs,
JB

Ramona said...

Fantastic shots. Double R Ranch, I like the sound of that one!! Looks very inviting too.

messymimi said...

Those fences introduce the personality of the places you enter through them!

Roan said...

Love the gate at Double R Acres, but there is something about the M and M Ranch gate. I think it's more up my alley. Not fancy, but serves the purpose well.

William Kendall said...

Incorporating the shape of the state into that gate is a nice touch!

Judy said...

Love the Double R Acres one, tho they all are wonderful.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

When we were in college in Waco, Paul was cycling buddies with a guy named Jason Hamby. Pretty sure that's his gate ;-)

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

they do it up nice in Texas. happy fences. ( :

Dianna said...

So glad you're carrying on the fence meme. I'll play along soon!

Ileana said...

Very interesting gates. Greetings from Romania!:)

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Love Double R Acres! As soon as it quits raining, hailing, blustering and lightning I am going to get out and click some fences. I don't think we have great fences like you Tex but I need to check it out!
*NOT complaining about the rain!

Blackberry Lane said...

Great photos; I am enjoying everyone's contributions!

Bob Bushell said...

Loving it, fences, entrance and exit.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Good fences make good neighbors... who said that? Robert Frost? Hmmm... I'll be pondering that all day. LOL! blessings ~ tanna

Paula said...

I'll take M&M's please.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

The Texas gate is my favorite- I'll bet that one cost some mulah!

diane b said...

The M&M ranch sounds yummy. Do you have M&M chocolates in the states?

Carletta said...

Your gates and fences always make me want one of my own. :)
The Double R here is my favorite. I like the brickwork. Seems inviting.
It's good to be joining you this week. :)

Gail Dixon said...

A very nice assortment here! Double R Acres is pretty cool; I like the Texas design in the center. Going through my archives I found some from Texas a few years ago. One said Double D! So you know I will be using that one soon. :)

thirtysevenandcounting said...

All great fences and gates! I like the M and M for its simplicity, the cattle silhouettes on the Hamby's sign, and what's not to like about the outline of Texas at the Double R?

Thanks for hosting! :D

Debbie said...

i LOVE double r acres....that wild ivy growing up the stone walls and the state of texas on the gate, this place has it all.

now get me up that driveway!! hehehe

p.s....i just looked again, pehaps that's not ivy but just a few pretty bushes. well, it matters not, i still love it!!

MarkD60 said...

I must complain, the title says fences but the pictures are mostly gates....
Great photos though...

ladyfi said...

A nice set of fences!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Those fences signal a sense of pride or self-respect that the rancher has. It's nice to see people make extra touches of beauty in their surroundings!

I love this recurrent blog topic!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I don't think you will ever run out of local subjects for this meme. M&M clearly doesn't want visitors :-(

Andrea Priebe said...

There is definately a Texas style in your fences ... I am guessing you have a lot more to show us. This is fun Theresa ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

Willow said...

M & M ranch ~ yum.
Great fences in Texas !

Indrani said...

Interesting collection again.

Margaret Adamson said...

Hi Tex Love the way the road winds itself round the fences. great gates. Thanks for hosting this meme. I am enjoying looking at all the fences that others are posting.

Stephanie said...

There's some nice fences and gates in your part of the world.

Sally said...

I always love the fences! Too bad there aren't many around here, or I would link up! :)

Small City Scenes said...

Super gates. We have several gate on the property but they are just the ordinary utility gates. Very nice gates you show. MB

Montanagirl said...

Love your fences. I haven't been brave enough to try all the link-up steps yet. lol.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, A fun meme! A good ranch entry with the brand or name of the owner is a nice advertisement and obviously most take great pride in the craftsmanship of their gate. Have a wonderful day today!

don said...

Good Fences is a roaring success! Nice job of running a meme. I like your gates for their personalized styles.

DIMI said...

A nice set of fences Tex!!I like them all!!!
Dimi...

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa,
Your fence must be the one really represent Texas in the huge area♡♡♡

So sorry for my late linking, busy day.
Night Night from Japan. I'll be able to visit some others tomorrow♪♪♪

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*

Karen said...

Such wonderful gates in Texas, we don't have anything like them here.

LV said...

The are each unique in their own way. However, I like the second one best. See you in a little while.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, Texas is the Queen of "Gatedom" and you always get the best shots!! Wish we had some fences/gates here in Old Portland so I could join the fun!!

Alica said...

I like the big gates on your Texas ranches! (especially ones that advertise free M & M's!) :)

Jeanne said...

Just linked up to Good Fences You were reading my mind.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love your fences -- hope you don't mind my addition....just occurred to me that I could link here if I stretched things a little bit.

Inger said...

I can't wait to join up in this come May. I took a few pictures of fences covered in snow yesterday. We have some cool posts made of rail road tiers and some of juniper branches. I will have to travel to find fancier stuff. Oh, this was a long comment, but it is just so much fun.

Stephen Hayes said...

I had no idea M&Ms were raised on ranches.

Janey and Co. said...

Love the Double R entrance...

Agata G. said...

VERY INTERESTING GATES.

Leovi said...

What pretty fences , I like to Hamby's entry !

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I'm trying to remember where in Vermont I saw a Texas style gate like those.... They're very cool , but a little unusual up here.

SweetMarie said...

I love the double R gate, nice!

Patty Woodland said...

That's a lot of ranches

Ms. A said...

I love Double R!

DeniseinVA said...

I always love those fences and gates. I'm a bit late but have just linked up.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I love the wagon wheels as part of the gate. The iron work looks so well done. I'm sorry I'm not participating this week, but I've got my eye on some fences. :-)

Marit Sønstebø said...

Grear gates and fences! :-)

Red said...

It's amazing the effort people put into creating some attractive gates.

LE CHEMIN DES GRANDS JARDINS said...

Le ranch est pour moi, Français, l'un des symboles forts de l'Amérique et relié directement à l'histoire du cinéma Américain. Il est pour nous, exotique, et donc porteur de rêves, de cowboys à cheval, de lassos, de bétail, bref tout ce qui pour toi est le cadre de ton quotidien. Voilà bien la richesse des échanges entre blogers.

Bien amicalement.

Roger

RedPat said...

These look so typically Texan to me! I have to get out and look for some fences.

Elephant's Child said...

Stunning fences - and so very different to any that I will see here in Oz. Thank you.

Melissa said...

I just love these ranch gates when I spot them. I completely forgot that today was Thursday, but I'm going to be collecting a cashe of fence photos for future weeks...

Beth said...

All great looking fences!!

FOREST SNAPPER said...

i'm trying to find away to make an electric fence look interesting as im forever getting a belt off the ones i get near.

Fjällripan said...

How fun that you started a meme :))
Great fences, especially the second!

Karen S. said...

Oh my that Double R Acres is very nice, and the drive reminds me of my own driveway! I just bet the M & M is mighty yummy too! I am so happy to say I'm in for Round 2 as well!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love this post and will join in tomorrow! I don't know why I'm always a day late! lol But keep the gate open for me and I'll see you in the morning! Sweet hugs!

Our photos said...

Very nice fences

nookworm said...

There are fences and then there are fences. I am getting some idea of what constitutes a fence! Sorted my old photos and now have fences to share before taking on more! I didn't know I liked fences so much and all of these are wonderful!

Becca said...

I love these shots Theresa! What a fun link up too, I just posted, but I'll have to remember this for next time!

Cloudia said...

Gosh Texas has cool fences!

Impressive, but not ostentatious entrances.

Lady Lilith said...

Now those are some really nice fences.

pattisjarrett said...

I love those curving driveways. I'm glad they spelled out "and" in that last one, I'd be craving M&Ms every time I saw it.

Linda said...

Thanks for hosting.
I want to see "Triple R" so I can look for Spin and Marty.

Halcyon said...

Nice fences. Very Texas-y!

A Quiet Corner said...

I'm going to find a fence...somewhere her, T...I'll be back...:)JP

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love them both. If I could have one, it would be Busy Bee Acres….with bee's buzzing all over them. Of course, then I might never have a visitor either….

Roxy the traveling dog said...

I like those. Such a nice touch.

Elaine at Bramble Rambles said...

I'm so happy to be joining in with everyone again. Such fun!

barbara l. hale said...

Terrific Texas fences! I'll add one from Massachusetts next week, I hope!!

edenhills said...

Your Texas gates are always so impressive!

Debbie said...

WoW t, 63 beautiful fences, 63 supportive friends!!

i am going to try to visit a few more this weekend!!

parker said...

Some of the gates are pretty fancy. The simplicity of M&M's pasture gate catches my eye!

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

The Double R gate is a real beauty. Hamby's is nice, too. M&M's looks a little desolate, though.

Sandy Carlson said...

Wow! These are great!

Susan said...

Hi there, sorry I missed link-up # 2 - we've been away from internet access for a week. Never mind, I shall look forward to joining in #3.

Love your featured fences. I like how even the power pole seems to co-ordinate with the Hamby's gate :D)

Deb said...

darn I missed the linky...

Laura. M said...

Good series, Teresa!!

Helma said...

Very nice to see. I also agree on a number of different blogs examined what barriers they had placed :-) When you are really a lot of fences but of course that's also the ranches. Here in the Netherlands are much less gates.

Lisa said...

I love this. Im going to be looking link up.
