Good Fences #18

A few simple gates with initials on them...
It doesn't look like much at first.

But zooming in, you find a 'T' made from horseshoes.

I rather like it! :)


Another simple ranch bar topper.

A rustic looking 'G'

EG CameraGirl said...

Tep, clever idea to make the letter T from horseshoes. I like it!

Buttons said...

Morning Tex. "I rather like it!" too:) Hug B

Brian King said...

The horseshoes are even upright! That means it's a lucky T! Both are minimal which I like.

Fireblossom said...

G for Good Fences? ;-)

MarmePurl said...

Roan said...

I love the 'T'. Perfect for Tex. :)

The horseshoe fence is very clever! Looks simplel at first until you look closely.

Elaine said...

Both simple, and simplicity can be beautiful.

Sandra said...

i like both of these, but am leaning towards the T.. the 3rd photo of the T is myfavorite

4RRanch said...

I'm sort of envious of the solar powered gate opener in the first picture.

"T" is for Tex of course!

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I like the T too. Horseshoes up for good luck!

Birdman said...

... or rusty G.

DJan said...

Horseshoes that have been repurposed. Or maybe they just take one down if they need to shoe a horse. :-)

Julia said...

That must be a very lucky gate. I love the T also.
I also noticed the solar panel in the background. I wonder if it opens by remote.
Hugs

Molly The Wally said...

The horse shoe T is quite clever. Have a tremendous Thursday.

Liz said...

I love the "T". Very clever!

Good morning sweet lady! The T is very cool indeed! And thanks for your sweet comment on my fence. I may want to try for the ugliest fence on Good Fences! I might get the prize! hahaha! Hugs, Diane

Cool use for the horse shoes.

Yes!!! And, we could be a little partial to that letter T. ;) blessings ~ tanna

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Just love the gates in Texas!

MarkD60 said...

This is unacceptable. I'm reporting you to blogger.com.
This post is Good Gates, not good fences!

:-)

I'm joking! Groovy gates!

Frank said...

I like the creative 'T'.

Mary Hone said...

Those are very clever.

CJ said...

Farmers and ranchers have always been resourceful people ---making something out of anything that will work. Great find.

Montanagirl said...

Ah, LOVE these!!

messymimi said...

Simple can be deceptively good looking!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

We saw in the latest episode of American Greed on CNBC where some crook spent well over $100,000 on wrought iron gates and fencing for his estate.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

The horseshoe initial is pretty clever, but I like the rusty one best! Thanks for hosting!

DIMI said...

Preety gates Tex!I like that 'T' made out of horse shoes!Great shots!
Dimi...

Phil Slade said...

Hey Theresa you must have pots of money to have fine gates that size and with your own initial too.

bj said...

The horseshoes are facing upward..holding the GOOD LUCK in.
Great photos...and thanks for a great party, too. I love this party...even tho I am scared to death of running out of fences and gates. I still have a few up my sleeve, tho. :)
xoxo

bailey-road.com said...

They're both pretty neat gates, but I like the simplicity of the Circle G.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Give me a G!
Give me a T!
What's that spell??

GOOD FENCES!

(hey, maybe you have to look at 'em sideways...)

Chandra said...

I like both the T and G.
Hope Audi don't get jealous :)

Peace :)

Kathy said...

that is very unique fence decor. I like it too.

Irma said...

Beautiful gate with the initials.

LV said...

Enjoyed the different gates and fences. Makes it so much nicer when people take the time to personalize them. I like the old, rusted one.

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

So many great gates in texas. xo Laura

Sylvia K said...

Great gates and fences! Love the horse shoes!

Small City Scenes said...

Tanya Breese said...

the t gate works well for you and i ;)

Leovi said...

Yes, photos are great, I like these beautiful works

Stephen Hayes said...

You've got me thinking about what type of gate I'd create if I had a ranch.

Karen S. said...

I completely like it too. Clever and quite lucky I bet! The locations where these gates are, intrigue me as well! Especially the first one. Quite lovely.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I don't think there is enough horseshoes available to create a Run*A*Round Ranch logo.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

How creative to use the horse shoes to form the T. Great rustic G too.

barbara l. hale said...

I like them both. Clever use of the horseshoes, though, so it makes it my fave.

joeh said...

And I thought the "G" spot was a myth. Now I find out it is in Texas!

Ron said...

I like the horseshoes!

sonia a. mascaro said...

An original idea to make the letter T from horseshoes. I liked that rustic looking 'G' too.

Miss Val's Creations said...

These are great. I love the use of the horseshoes!

Marie said...

Love the T with the horseshoes! And thanks for visiting me before I got completely linked in! It's 9:30 am here in Tucson and you already have a plethora of submissions!!! This is one popular meme! I haven't even had my coffee yet. :-)

Andrea Priebe said...

Some people are just clever and the people who recognize that are equally as clever. I love the fence with the horseshoe "T" even if you have to get up close to see it. And a Rustic "G" ... I love rustic, so this works too. Thanks, Theresa ...

Amdrea @ From The Sol

Catherine said...

I really like the "T". Blessings. Catherine

Black Jack's Carol said...

I "rather like it" as well, TexWis. The "G" was also a sweetly humble way of marking someone's loved (I felt) property.

Cloudia said...

Oh! Oh! Thursday fence day! Let me run to Linky up!💜😸

Farm Girl said...

Lovely fences today.

SweetMarie said...

I wonder why you like the "T"?! haha! Nice!

Filip Demuinck said...

Looks a bit like a necklace

Greetings,
Filip

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

The horseshoe "T" is brilliant!
I would love to visit the US one day too!

RedPat said...

Love those horseshoes! ;-)

ellen b. said...

I like initials on fences. I'm getting over jet lag and am sharing some gates and fences from England today.
Have a great weekend!

Revrunner said...

"Rustic" for sure.

Patty Woodland said...

I like the little horseshoes too

Robin Lamb said...

T, great gates! Sorry I didn't link today. Had my computer in the shop getting a tune up yesterday, and I'm not back to being organized yet! I have a couple of good ones I think you'll like!

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Thats a great find, all of the same horse or just created ?


peter

Paula said...

Like the horseshoe T. We have a restaurant here that sells decorations made of horseshoes. I'm always so tempted to buy one but you can only hang so many decorations on your house and yard. lol

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Always enjoy seeing the fences you post :)

Pix Under the Oaks said...

I think that "T" is pretty special!

Our photos said...

Very nice ! Like the horse shoes.

bj said...

Can't tell you how pleased I am to see so many entries in your party..very successful to have that many in a short time.You did good, sister friend.
Now, would you kindly take a look at my blog and see how everything looks? I chaanged some widths around and altho it looks centered and good, Vee said it wasn't centered on her IPad...thanks...

Happyone said...

Really like your fences photos. That T one is really cool.

Steve A said...

Puppy panels!

More solar panels! I love it:@)

You show the most amazing fences!

thepoodleanddogblog said...

Simple, personal and very clever... a great combination

The "T" made with horseshoes was unexpected. Nice find!

travelwithintent.com said...

Simple but very attractive.

Red said...

Give the gate guys credit. They have a great imagination.

don said...

Those are very good fences and gates. What a good use for old horse shoes. My power has been off due to a violent thunderstorm that knocked down a number of trees and took out my power. It's back on now, but I was unable to check in as I usually would. Thanks for watching out for me.

Grantham Lynn said...

Love your gates! Thanks for coming by. I loved that cute pic. I'll be by to visit the linky. The grandson showed up and I'm cooking dinner. Goulash is simming so I was checkin' comments.
Have a good Friday.
Sherry

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I kind of like that T, too! :-)

Randy said...

Nice selection.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I have to tell you, that I never see a fence anymore and not think of you and your great fences!

Gail Dixon said...

Loving that rusty G. I need to get one for my gate! Thanks for hosting Mrs. T!!

Almost forgot to link up today. We had a major plumbing incident last night and dealt with it all day. Sigh.

Sandy Carlson said...

Very beautiful, my friend!

Angela said...

I just love those fences and gates! Every time I see your fence posts it makes me want one. Problem is my husband doesn't want to mow around one so I can't seem to get him to put one up! lol Even though we had someone who was stealing stuff around our place, the metal trash bin. He put up cameras instead! lol

KB Bear said...

Wow, I love that "T" gate too. Very classy!

Sally said...

I like the T also, but for some reason it doesn't look like horse shoes for me. But, then again it's late and I'm tired. :)

Stephanie said...

Nice looking fences and gates especially the last one with the rust.

thirtysevenandcounting said...

I like them both!

~Lindy

Paul said...

More nice gate finds by you!

I'm thinking you've probably taken enough interesting pictures to publish a really nice coffee table book of Texas fences and gates.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

The T is so creatively done!

Jim said...

I do like these sorts of bespoke fences.

Halcyon said...

The "T" from horseshoes is pretty creative. Great finds!

Mary Kirkland said...

My brother makes tables out of horseshoes so I love that idea.

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

I like iron a lot :)

orchid Miyako said...

Hi, Theresa; So sorry for my belated comment. I was SO tide up.
It would be SO GREAT that I could go into these ranches with unique fences and touch horses :-)
I LOVE these initial designs♡♡♡

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

A Quiet Corner said...
