Good Fences #11

This entrance really makes a statement. They chose to put the name of the place on both front corners of the drive and kept the ranch gate crossbar bare. The shade of the trees would have made it difficult to read up there. And their use of red for the metal wheels against the black fencing is definitely eye-catching.
 

Looks like the hub and spokes are the only things NOT broken on that old wooden wagon wheel.
Happy fence hunting, everyone! I really love that you all visit each other's posts and leave comments for one another! That's what makes the link-up fun! Thanks for sharing!

In Germany you need at least 1 year for applications and then come townspeople and forbid you to build the fence Regards Frank

Ileana said...

That's fun.

Chandra said...

That is a great idea - using those wagon wheels for decorating the fence. I notice that one of the wheels is a bit dented. May be they were in service sometime. I haven't seen such nice ranch fences since the last time in Denton, TX.

Peace :)

Paula said...

I like it!

pattisjarrett said...

Now THAT is a cool fence! You're right, the color is perfect.

CJ said...

Nice pics. I love it when someone uses one thing to create another. Love the wheels ---and that are a great tie-in with the ranch's name, too, even if all of their spokes seem to be intact.
