Blocked

The old corral panels that lead down into the pond are keeping the horses on their side of things, as they were meant to.
The rust shows they were once covered in water when the pond was full and it is complimented by Zim's chestnut coat...
 and the old rusted milk can dredged out of the pond, too.

Linking to Rubbish Tuesday
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note: This week's Good Fences link-up will open on Wednesday morning and run through Friday afternoon so that those celebrating Thanksgiving Day can participate early, if they wish. Thanks(for everything)!

Glad you can keep the children in the children's room. Love the brown patina matching Zim. It also reminds me of good TX cedar.

Stephanie Faris said...

I do love the way Chestnut's coat compliments the fence coloring! Perfect pictures.

MarkD60 said...

The horse seems to be on the wrong side of the fence...

Revrunner said...

Must be frustrating to be corralled. :-)

Debbie said...

Always nice to see Zim and Gem. :) Particularly nice shot of Zim in your first image. I love the rusty corral panels. That poor milk can has seen better days! :)

I really love that beautiful face on the chestnut color horse. The fence kind of looks like some of our old fences.

Hugs,

Linda Kay said...

I just love your horses. That old milk can brings back memories of my dad setting one of those out for the milk delivery guy to pick up. I have one that is all decorated for Christmas, so I'll post a picture later.

Donna OShaughnessy said...

Love the rust on rust composition as well as the old white of the milk can against the weathered grey wood. You must be sure to donate your eyes to science when you part, but don't go anytime soon!

Hi Tex, Zim is sure a nice looking horse. Do you spend much time riding? One of my best friends in Montana has a ranch and horses. I've learned a lot about horses that (IMHO) most city folks don't know. They are amazing animals. John

Sandra said...

so beautiful, the fence and the horses and i love that old can you dredged up... hope someday the fence will be under water again.

Anvilcloud said...

The pond has certainly gone down.

Willow said...

Aww Always enjoy seeing the horses as always .Zims' coat is complimenting the whole scene ~ I love chestnut colored horses .

Not the best looking fence in Texas, but it does the job.

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

I see a fly mask! Where would country peeps be without panels?????

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I knew there was something special about Zim's color, a perfect match.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Gorgeous horses, T. That rusty fence would have fit into Rubbish Tuesday & Good Fences!

Mary Hone said...

They don't seem super thrilled about it.

Birdman said...

Don'r fence us in OR out for that matter.

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

That is a lot of missing water.

ladyfi said...

What a lovely horse!

don said...

I think the horses seem oppressed by your confounded fences! :-) These are fine picture of the horses wishing they could be on this side with the camera person.

maryaustria said...

He looks as though he's trying to figure out a way to get around the fence!! Such a beautiful horse!!

Karen S. said...

Such a beautiful horse! When we take time to notice, everything has it's place and a reason for being does't it! Even a fence!

S. J. Qualls said...

Yep, the fence and Zim's coat are good together. Zim is beautiful, no winter rough coat there?
If I was younger... I'd come down and bargain you for that milk can. :D

Terry and Linda said...

But it's so GREEN over there...why can't we go?!?!?!

Hi Theresa, Even rusty, the fencing is useful and somewhat attractive. Nice view of the gorgeous horses! You are blessed! Have a good day today and another great day tomorrow!

Chestnut and rust make a lovely color combination.

Zim looks a bit unhappy with that fence in his way!

The water must rise fairly high for that fence to be so rusty.

Pantherka said...

Your horses are both wonderful!

Robin Lamb said...

T, Zim doesn't look all that happy about being blocked from all that green on the other side!

Gail Dixon said...

The fence is a perfect match to Zim's coat! He sure looks like he'd rather be on the other side of it.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to you!

It's still a nice fence, and appears to do its job quite well. I like that old milk can too.

Red said...

We had a horse that could unlatch the get and get out! That latch was changed in a hurry.
