Good Fences #68

One of my favorite area ranches with a nice, large spread. They breed Brangus cattle (a cross between Black Angus and Brahman).
Set back off the road.


Zooming way in.
And they keep a very plain entrance.
Here's the link-up!

Good morning, Tex! Looks like a pretty cattle ranch. I like the first shot with the curvy drive and hay. Great captures! Thanks for hosting! Wishing you a wonderful day!

Maggie said...

Hi from Normandy, those hay bales really are world travellers I could swear they're in my photographs too!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Never heard of "Brangus" breed before. I learned something today. Nice ranch area!!!

Margaret Adamson said...

The plain entrance does not distract the beautyof the view. I love the way the fence curves as well as the dirt road on this ranch. Thanks for hosting and hope things are going well for you.

LV said...

What I would call a "mansion" ranch on the hill. There are a lot of nice spreads near you. Will do more visiting later. On my way to my great grandson baseball playoffs most of the day.

Buttons Thoughts said...

Morning Tex thanks for hosting Good Fences. Oh it is nice to see round bales we are still waiting here. Nice Texas fence. Hug B

Brian King said...

Beautiful place! I like the simple fence and gate!

Julia said...

That looks like a big house... We are in full swing haying round bales here too. We have over 2000 bales of hay and silage in and we're still cutting. The hay is plentiful this year.
Hugs,
JB

Kate said...

That really is a large spread!!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Beautiful spread. They don't need to put on any fancy pants at the gate. ;) I'll bet their drive was killer this spring with all the rain! Ughhh! Life is right again... I see your post first thing in my morning. ;) blessings and hugs ~ tanna

messymimi said...

Very well kept:@)

Brangus? My Scotsman brands that a heresy, lol.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Good Morning, Tex. Very nice ranch. When I see fence like that painted silver I remember my junior high school summer that my gal pal and I painted all the fencing on her Dad's QH facility. It took ALL summer.. all of it. We did break to swim at the Elk's Club pool most afternoons. It is getting so a field isn't quite right without a few round bales sitting there all pretty!

Going to have to Google that brand - I'm like Anni in that I've never heard of it.
It would appear with a special brand and a large sprawling house that the entrance is the only 'plain' thing about the place. :)
Have a wonderful day!

Rose said...

What a place! I like the plain sort of entrance...love that they have hay bales in their view!

Rose said...

Wanted to add, I hope all is going well with you!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

An impressively large front yard!

EG CameraGirl said...

Brangus is a new breed to me! Maybe they aren't hardy enough to live in my neck of the woods. I agree that it's a nice looking ranch!

Cranberry Morning said...

Love that driveway. It's the kind of lane I loved running on barefoot when I was a kid.

Debbie said...

it's a pretty place, neat and clean!! i guess in "texas talk" it is plain, i like the open feel of it, it's not screaming "no trespassing"!!!!

Brk Trt said...

Simplicity in the fence...I like that.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

Have I mentioned I love clouds (not to be monotonous...)

Ileana said...

Beautiful place! Have a nice day!

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I love seeing the bales of hay out in the field. I think I'll go take a couple fence pics now!

DJan said...

More shredded wheat rolls. Nice place! :-)

Karen S. said...

Plain but effective entrance. I wonder is their mailbox all the way down at the very end> They sure are set far back. What a huge beautiful place!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Good Morning Theresa, great shots of the beautiful ranch and gate entrance. Simple but so Texas! Great shots.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for hosting.
Hugs,cm

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Good morning sweet friend! Looks like a beautiful home on that ranch. Enjoy your day! Hugs, Diane

Mildred said...

What a pretty place and such a huge home! Love your photos. Thx for hosting - I actually have a fence to share today!!!

Gosia k said...

The house looks like castle in European style

Linda Kay said...

Interesting that they keep the entrance simple, as so many have such elaborate entries. Thanks for keeping me linked while I waited for my technology!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Congrats on Good Fences #68. Those rolled up bales of hay always get my attention. Neat pics! Thank you for your very kind reply. Best regards to you from Seattle.

Dearest Theresa; I always admire or envious ;-)yuor great large spread♡♡♡ I almost wonder if they can figure out where is the border of the property. Standing on that kind Texas ranch must makes you healthier☆☆☆ And also Very Big Pretty House♪ Have a wonderful day, Dear friend!
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Small City Scenes said...

Wow that is quite a spread. MB

Birdman said...

That iron fence ought to keep those bales of hay under control. Ha.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very beautiful area!

Sandra said...

what? no stars or cows or cowboys or wagon wheels on the gate? a beautiful home and pasture.

*Czereśnia A* said...

Hy Tex!

Very interesing photografes.

Yours:)*

Siddhartha Joshi said...

What a beautiful ranch! Loved the pics...

troutbirder said...

Brangus. Now that's a new one. I also like not so ostentatious whether fences or whatever...:)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Now that is a serious fence! I never heard of Brangus cattle before.

Andy Wilson said...

Nice day too.

Nancy Chan said...

A lovely cattle breeding farm with a plain entrance.

Andrea Priebe said...

Lovey ranch and sturdy looking fence but, where are the Brangus? I was so ready to see what a Brangus looks like. Maybe next time you take photos of this fence from a different angle, you could catch one of those critters for our benefit :) Nice post, Theresa ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

That looks like a huge house! No need for a fancy gate with a house like that, although it would be fun to see what they came up with if they decided to "fancy up" the gate a little.

Jo said...

I love the dirt track leading from the fences to the homestead. Thanks for linking my post in my absence!

Carola Bartz said...

It might be a plain entrance, but the area is gorgeous. All the beautiful green, and the wideness of the land. I wish I could see the cows.

Jeevan said...

wow! great ranch ground and a house amid is awesome... like their simple fences

ladyfi said...

Nice open scenery!

Irma said...

Beautiful place, what a beautiful ranch.

don said...

I like their plain gate that leads to this large, and very attractive farm home. A very attractive place.

Phil Slade said...

I can only repeat what everyone else has said. A beautiful ranch. Thanks for letting me sit on your fences today Theresa.

Sylvia K said...

Yep, I learned something today, too! Never heard of Brangus either!! A beautiful place and looks so peaceful!!

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

I like places like that where you can see for miles in every direction.

nookworm said...

I will have to see the Brangus cattle. Never heard of them! Nice open farm there.

Tamago said...

Such a large, beautiful ranch! I'd love to live in such area some day :-)

Darcie (My Modern Country) said...

Love it! SO good to be back in the blogosphere. AND, I finally have a fence post to share :)

William Kendall said...

Quite a big house, Theresa!

Gail said...

Great house, wonderful fences and glad Hay is done.

We can't give ours away so we are going to let it seed and then bush hog. Such a waster but it will nourish the ground.

Ida said...

That's quite the house on that ranch. I love those rolled bales of hay. - You would think that the entrance would be a little fancier to match the house but simplicity is good too.

janiceadcock said...

The simple fence of a working ranch.

jeannettestgermain said...

Yes, plain in comparison to the house and the grounds - now I'm getting curious why (a rhetorical question,:):) ) Thank you for hosting this every week, Theresa!

RedPat said...

It looks like a huge ranch! I have to find some cool fences so I can get back into the meme!

Timi said...

WOW! What a big ranch! I love it!!!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Beautiful piece of land!

S. J. Qualls said...

A beautiful home! Plain fence, but I would wager not cheap! I like it.

Laura. M said...

Beautiful house Teresa. I will come back ;)

Gail Dixon said...

That is one beautiful ranch. Never heard of Brangus before, but okay! :) Thanks for hosting!!

Kovács Miklós said...

Nice field, nice green :)

bailey-road.com said...

What a nice place. I like the simple style fence here too.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

It all looks very tidy.

No pretense in that fence. Nice vista in the first pic.

Mariette

Randy said...

Nice shots. Those are some big bales.

Uppal said...

It is a treat to watch your panoramic shots!

Susan said...

Wow, these are beautiful! If I had a lot of property I'd be way off the road too!

Linda said...

I had not heard of Brangus before. At first glance it looked like one of those Brad and Angelina nicknames.

Paul said...

That's quite the zoom on your camera! I like your Texas version of "Set back from the road"!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I expected an elaborate gateway! Nice house though! ☺

Stewart M said...

Thats a nice looking property -I wander if anybody still uses 'square' hay bales anymore.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Ms. A said...

That 's a big house to go with that big spread!

A Quiet Corner said...

Debbie said...

WoW!!! 65, that's a lot of fences!!!!

Fjällripan said...

A very beautiful place for a ranch! :)

Greetings from a rainy and rather cold Sweden!
next week I starts my 4 weeks vacation so I hope
the sun and the warmth shows up then! :D

Bob Bushell said...

Great fences Theresa.

Lynne said...

Nice spread indeed . . . Maybe it is a smart idea to underplay the gate entrance . . .

Debby@Just Breathe said...

What a lovely ranch that is!

Terry and Linda said...

Seems peaceful, although I know it really is lots of work.

We had Black Angus cattle in the fields around our village when I was growing up. Neat to hear about Brangus. Beautiful photos with scenes that could almost have been in Quebec. Happy Friday. Thanks for hosting!

Stephanie said...

Lovely wheat bales scenery, fencing!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful home, nothing pretentious ... I like this place! And it wouldn't hurt my feelings to have a few of those cattle around the yard;)
