Good Fences #29

This place has a nice fence in front

Missing the tip of one of his longhorns.

A metal chicken and a hand-painted "Texas" to greet you.
And a weary pasture fence next door.

Good morning, Tex! I like the neatness of the first fence and yard. The longhorn and metal chicken are cute decorations! Thanks for hosting, have a great day!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I still like the LONGHORN on the gate, missing horn tip or not.

Dianna said...

I think I like the weary fence best, although it could use a little sprucing up!

Brian King said...

Nothing wrong with homemade. That's a little different style of fence, too. I like the hand written "Texas"!

Tanya Breese said...

i like the chicken and the hand painted texas :)

Sandra said...

I like the rustic look of the last one and the chicken under Texas made me smile..

Ramona said...

Great shots. Love the corner fence posts.

EG CameraGirl said...

That Texas Longhorn sure does have "long horns"!

Bethany Carson said...

Nice longhorn on the gate! Sounds like the owners are proud to be Texans!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

The old fence is still doing its job. Sort of a metaphor for some of us getting long in the tooth.

Cranberry Morning said...

Love that chicken and Texas sign above the sturdy fencing. That reminds me, I think that in Texas you see the name 'Texas' quite a bit in signs on ranches. I've yet to see a Wisconsin farm with the name 'Wisconsin' on a sign. I think I need to remedy that.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

This is a really cool one. I will be back; I have a very sick cat right now.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I love that longhorn!

Lynn said...

Maybe it's just Halloween... But that painted Texas kinda reminds me of the movie Texas Chainsaw Massacre:@)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

The Longhorn just shouts "Texas."

The chicken is cute too. Nice neat fence,

Beth of ".E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

i just love the big red steer head. that is pretty fancy. ( :

Mascha said...

Cool ornaments!
Thanks for hosting :-)

Debbie said...

the good, the bad (looks like texas blood) and the ugly!!

i really like the first place. neat, clean and tidy, my kinda place ;)

DJan said...

I always wonder about the need to write "Texas" on a sign. Like you didn't know already? Just proud I guess that they live there. :-)

Birdman said...

Wow!
Two jobs for this fence. Keepin' cows corralled and playing a good game of tennis.

Molly The Wally said...

Wonder why the longhorn lost one of his horns LOL? Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

William Kendall said...

Quite a contrast in fences!

Felicia said...

I like the missing tip of the horn...seems to be more lifelike. It's a nice fence and gate and yes the one next door looks very weary.

W. Latane Barton said...

I do love those Texas fences!

Ramakrishnan Ramanathan said...

Nice juxtaposition - a weary unkempt fence next to a nice neat fence !

magnoliasntea said...

That weary gate reminds me of myself...weary, leaning and ready for a lift. lol

Ileana said...

Lovely pictures of fences! Have a great day!

Kate said...

I have to get out more to find images for some of my favorite memes, such as yours!

Joana said...

"Good fences" ist a great ideal; I like it!
Lovely pics of fences :)

Have a great day, and best wishes

ladyfi said...

What a wonderful collection of whimsical fences.

Andrea Priebe said...

Life is hard even if you are a make believe Longhorn :) Love the embellishments ... probably like the chicken the best since I have a thing for birds. Nice group of fences, Theresa.

Primitive Stars said...

Great looking fences, love the homemade longhorn head.Blessings Francine.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love that hand painted TEXAS! Hope that's red paint! haha! Thanks for the fences! Hugs, Diane

Michelle said...

I do love the longhorn. Pretty cool! However, the Texas sign above the chicken looks kind of creepy to me!!!

Lois said...

The last shot is my favorite. I like that chicken too!

Debbie at Travel with Intent said...

I like the Texas one!

Irma said...

Lovely pictures of fences.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Texas has fences of all types doesn't it? From neat to weary!
Love the homemade longhorn.

Julia said...

The shabby fences looks a bit like some of our own old fences.... But I like the neat and tidy because it looks like sombody cares.

Hugs,
JB

MarkD60 said...

I spent a few minutes looking at each picture how it related to the others. Learning my way around the farm.

orchid Miyako said...

Oh, the long horn with the missing tip and chicken is really neat♪ I always think people in Texas has pride with their state. I really admire that. Yes,I like the hand printed 'TEXAS', Theresa.

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

Paula said...

Makes me think of UT since both my granddaughters graduated from there. Like this whole post very much.

photodoug said...

Longhorn and free-range chicken make for nice adornments. Thanks for sharing.

Janey and Co. said...

I like all of those pictures! Especially the hand painted Texas sign..

Rose said...

For some reason I just love this fence...and I especially love that last shot. Love the way the posts are leaning. and that they look like trees...

Gerald (SK14) said...

wouldn't care to catch myself on one of those longhorns

Karen S. said...

For sure by your last photo the weariness really stands out. I'm not sure why, but the painted word Texas, brings Civil War days to mind. Weird, I know. It looks like it was put there in haste, by necessity. But the gate with the wheel, or so it appears to me, gives me a great idea for a heavy wooden gate we have. A wise idea!

Carola Bartz said...

I really like the longhorn and the chicken. A great way to personalize a gate or fence.

Gosia k said...

your region looks so wild

thirtysevenandcounting said...

A very neat-looking, well-kept place. I like the longhorn accent on the gate and the metal chicken! Good ol' rustic fence at the end, too. Looks like it has worked hard during its lifetime. :)

Thanks for hosting!

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

I can't help but think that TEXAS was written in blood. Perhaps that was the intent. I wouldn't have noticed the chicken if you hadn't pointed it out. Pure Texas all around.

Jeevan said...

Pretty good and neat fences! Hand painted Texas isn’t bad

Jeevan said...

Pretty good and neat fences! Hand painted Texas isn’t bad

Terry and Linda said...

We have a weary gate or two around out place.

Gradually Terry and I are getting them fixed, though.

You have such a good variety of fences in your post. The long horn seems to have been dehorned on one side. Too bad. I like the corner with the fence running both ways too. A favorite.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

That pasture fence does look weary! :-)

Tamago said...

That is a nice fence. Love the handwriting. And the chicken is cute :-)

Stephen Hayes said...

I guess fences in Texas are what makes cattle ranches possible.

Sylvia K said...

Great fences for the day! Texas does have a great variety! Hope your week is going well!!

DeniseinVA said...

These are great and I love the longhorn.

Gail said...

I always enjoy your fences and the building behind them.

joeh said...

I like the "Texas" un case a passerby wants to know what State he is in.

bailey-road.com said...

I like the homemade embellishments!

MTWaggin said...

Haha LOVE the chicken and like you all didn't already know you were in Texas! :)

Marissa said...

Love the fences!
I can smell the country air .. LOVE IT!

Ruth Kelly said...

I agree with one of the other commentaries, like the long horn on the fence.

Elaine said...

Nice looking gate and fence, but that weary pasture fence next door takes the prize.

Jo said...

Great collection of fences. I've only just linked as my post seems to hit the air many hours before yours! Greetings. Jo

Bob Bushell said...

That is fences.

Sally Crowe said...

Love the homemade embellishments. :)

barbara l. hale said...

"Texas"...stating the obvious. Nice batch of fences. I like that rustic Texas sign.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love those Texas fences! For some reason, the Texas sign made me think of the "Don't Mess with Texas" signs I used to see there and I think my son even had one when he lived in TX, my brother, too. I don't think you'll ever see a Don't Mess with Missouri sign anywhere! haha!

Ida said...

Nice fence shots. I like the decorations on it. The Longhorn is pretty cool and so was the chicken. The "Texas" though looked like dripping blood, sort of like something you might see in a horror movie.

Linda said...

For some reason I love the metal chicken.

DIMI said...

Lovely fences Tex!!I like most the Longhorn!!So cool!!
Dimi...

Karen said...

That's a neat fence (as in tidy). I like it.

Ms. A said...

That weary pasture fence reminds me of what is around my NC property... if it's even still there.

RedPat said...

I like that chicken!

Melissa said...

The homemade additions add a lot of charm :)

Black Jack's Carol said...

Something about the "weary" fence speaks to me. Perhaps, it has something to do with my age :) Nice photos, Theresa. Thanks so much for hosting!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Are Texas chickens bigger? IMWTK

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I've seen real longhorns with a broken tip like that. Examples of good fences and bad fences here... I like them all.

LV said...

I think it is neat they used a chicken as decoration. Do not see many of those. At least, they also honored Texas.

Stephanie Faris said...

That fence just screams Texas in every way possible!

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Being a pasture fence is HARD WORK. You have to stand all day and night!

Grandma C said...

So is that the ranch of the short horned cattle? ha ha
I almost missed seeing the chicken... till I read the note at the bottom. Nice fence shots.

Jeanne said...

I like the chicken.
I remember home made fences when I was a very little girl in the city.

Robin Lamb said...

T, looks fairly decent. But I have to ask myself whey they put Texas up like that. Surely they remember what state they are in and most of the people who pass by know where they are!!

Ellie said...

Hi T, remember me? I've come back to blogging - going to try really hard to get better at it too.
I've missed your fences, hope you are well. :)

Grantham Lynn said...

Yes it's weary but if you missin' pastures and fences and what the hold it's beautiful. I would take it any day. Then of course put some horse friendly fence in it's place! Enjoy your pics. Thanks for coming by my Wordfilled Wednesday post. I'll try to post later tonight.
Have a wonderful Friday!

Leovi said...

Deliciously funny, I like cock!

Marie said...

Love the weary pasture fence! The longhorn on the gate is neat, and the metal chicken. But this close to Halloween, I worry about that drippy "Texas!" :-)

Our photos said...

That is nice, but the next door fence is my favorite !

Hell Hound said...

The first fence is so neat!

Chandra said...

Hi Theresa,
The missing horn of the Longhorn wasn't obvious to me, until you pointed that out. I love the handwritten Texas sign. Charming, if you ask me.

Have a Great Evening!

Peace :)

Karen Schurr said...

I really like the "weary pasture fence". Kinda feelin' it right now LOL.

Amy Burzese said...

I'm with almost everyone else. Love that Texas sign.

Margaret said...

Linking up a bit late in the day. :)

Red said...

In the last photo it's not only the fence that's tired but also the pasture.

pattisjarrett said...

Weary is a good description of the fence that has seen its good days pass by.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Lovely photos and I'm afraid, somebody 'tipped'...
Hugs,
Mariette

Stephanie said...

Good evening! These are wonderful fence shots!

Paul said...

Nice fences, I like the weary old pasture fence though, it has allot of character.

Randy said...

Nice fence shots.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Love the chicken and the 'weary' fence. xo

biebkriebels said...

It is nice they decorate the fences there to make a difference.

Indrani said...

Both are good, you have a good collection.

Terri said...

Oh goodness, I have seen a few of those weary pasture fences myself!!

Gert said...

Love this post! You have the most unique fences down there!! And bless you for searching and sharing them with us!

Blessings
Gert

The longhorn is lovely even with the missing tip.

Betty Manousos said...

i just love that texas longhorn!
xo

CJ said...

Love the longhorn on the gate.

Thanks for stopping by to see my fence for this week.

Kate said...

I need to be more conscious of noticing gates and fences for this meme. Amused by the missing longhorn tip.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

It is a nice fence and it looks like a strong one too! Yes that pasture fence looks like it needs a little bit of help.

Helma said...

A lot of nice and beautiful fences with wonderful details also there:-)

Debra Howard said...

Any Texas fence is a friend of mine. Not really a fan of the team but I do love those Shipley boys...they went to school with my kids.

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

I like a white fence but the shot of the weary fence is my favorite.
