Good Fences #44

First I have to get this in.......LOVED YOUR WHISTLERS yesterday. I think that one is the BEST ever.

This is a great Texas gate. The number being framed in is so cool.

Brian King said...

The cut out is fantastic! The horn cut outs on the gate are really nice, too! This has lots to look at without being too gawdy.

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Dearest Theresa; The fence has SWEETNESS and also holds simple BEAUTY, doesn't it♡♡♡ We just finished dinner and my husband looked into my PC and found the word 'Texas' on the design; amazing he could read p;-)

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

Lovely details! And otherwise, I think: in Texas the world is more gigantic than in Germany -

Terri B said...

Very cool, intricate details- someone is very talented on the laser machine.

Bob Bushell said...

I don't know how you get so many, great FENCES.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Maybe one of these days I'll have a beautiful ranch entrance. I love those cut outs.

That detail is fabulous over the bar above the gate. Thanks for hosting.

Pamela Gordon said...

That's a beautiful gate and the cut out is really pretty. The house looks huge!

EG CameraGirl said...

Lovely details in the closeup. There's no doubt in my mind that this fence is in Texas. :))

Felicia said...

you're right it is a grand entrance and the detail is wonderful. I like the little colt on the ground.

About how big is that section of detail.

Karen S. said...

It is intricate detail, very nice, it reflects their life well. The house looks quite large too, beautiful place. I sure wish we'd have a few less gray days around here as well!

Linda Kay said...

This fence looks so refined and elegant compared to so many heavy log fences in Texas.

Roan said...

I think of all the entrances you have posted, this is my favorite. Love the windmill!

Bob Scotney said...

Great cutout at the top completes the picture.

messymimi said...

That's a person with an incredible eye for detail work who had that fence done. If s/he still runs the place, i bet it's run well!

Rose said...

I think this is one of the best fences! I love that scene of the cowboy/foal/windmill.

Debbie said...

Nice, clean and neat, I love it!! Those cut outs on the gate are a really nice detail!! Overall....marvelous!!

DJan said...

What a nice little cutout. I am sort of used to skies that look like that, it's normal for around here in the winter. :-)

Karen Schurr said...

My, what detail. Sure does tell a story about the owner :)

A Quiet Corner said...

Talk about detail is right! Leave it to the Texans to do it with style!!...:)JP

Liz Needle said...

Another great Texas fence? They are so distinctive. Just looked at yesterday's post. Those shots are delightful. I think I will have to put up feeders instead of scattering seed.

Unmistakably Texan!

".E." Lizard Breath Speaks, It's Beth said...

this makes me what a farm. a big dream of mine. i love the fence design. those we see all the time at craft shows for sale. i guess there are a lot of fancy people, who can be so talented & make different fencing design. i was trying to think what to call them - you said cut out. sounds good. ( :

Jacquelineand.... said...

I think this is the best gate/ cut out ever!

Morning, loving that fence and gate, what Texas is all about to me. Blessings Francine.

Breathtaking said...

Love this Texan gate!:)With fine workmanship on the design, and the number is nicely framed too.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

The engineer in me wants to know how that got that level of detail in the metal, fancy schmanzy.

Paula said...

I've never seen one with the design of birds on it too. Nice!

Irma said...

This is a beautiful gate, the top I find very beautiful.

Someone could write an entire story based on what's happening in the silhouette.

Cutouts against a grey sky are such beautiful art. I think it's interesting how every culture creates art depending on location, language, and resources. Beautiful.

You have shown some wonderful fences from your neck of the woods, but this is my very favorite so far! It's the detail that makes is so special! Sigh! I have been saving fence shots for two weeks but come Thursday, the post doesn't happen. Hoping to catch up next week.

Bethany Carson said...

Very nice fence with a lovely cutout! Wish I could visit the great state of Texas again soon.
