Hello Tex, The longhorn cattle are so cool. I love seeing them, I wonder if those horns are heavy. Great fence series! Thanks for hosting.

Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Longhorns!!!! Beautiful critters!!!! Sorry, I didn't see the fence right off, I was too busy admiring the cattle and co-resident!!

Janey and Co. said...

I finally did it....got the number 1 spot! Ha!...not sure why that makes me happy?
I always stop when I see Longhorns behind a fence!

Buttons Thoughts said...

Morning Tex. Longhorns and a Donkey oh I love it. Simple but effective fence. HUGS B

Cranberry Morning said...

Look at those marvelous beasts! I'm assuming those horns are never a threat to the donkey?

Brian King said...

Oh, nice! I like how they curl up and back!

Breathtaking said...

Hello Theresa!:) This is a neat looking fence, and I love seeing the Longhorns. They are such gorgeous creatures, and they don't seem to mind sharing the field with the donkey.

Michelle said...

Those horns! You would never see this in my neck of the woods!

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Tex, Great fence and longhorn shots. Seeing a lot of this here too as the cattle is enjoying the warm days. Lots of rain this week. So needed. Thanks for hosting as always. Have a great day!!

Gayle atMuldoon said...

And a good pal to have.

Thanks for hosting 103 times so far! Love the long horns. Do they really need a guard donkey ;) Very cute.

Margaret Adamson said...

I love the cattle with the huge horns although I would not want to get on the wrong side of them! I just made linking in before I flew to the I.O.W today. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend.

Julia said...

I wish we had such beautiful fences. I'm sure they are needed to keep these longhorn cattle in. I wouldn't want to tackle with a bull with such long horns.
Hugs,JB

Gerald (SK14) said...

Hope the donkey isn't fazed by the longhorns.

Debbie said...

gorgeous longhorns, kinda' silhouette looking. beautiful images, pretty blue skies!!!

i almost forgot about the fence.....it's amazing a fence that size can hold them back. electric, i suppose!!!!

joeh said...

That really needs to be a good fence.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Whenever I see longhorns, my mind wanders back to cowboy stories about herding them. That had to be a dangerous job with these guys.

Barb Brookbank said...

Very impressive animals.

matti juhani niilola said...

In cows is a great horns.Greetings.

Rose said...

I wish there were some of these still where I got to see them every now and then. Love seeing them.

LV said...

These appear easy going, but I do not like being around them. Their horns look a weapon. The donkey is curious and checking them out. Trust the storms missed you.

happywonderer.com said...

Good morning from Seattle! Those longhorns are fun to see especially with a donkey in their midst! Have a great weekend.

Midmarsh John said...

Don't think I would venture across that field.

I wouldn't want to mess with those horns!!

Gail said...

Majestic creatures.

Very impressive long horns!

Cloudia said...

SO Texas!

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

Longhorns are so majestic looking.

Giga said...

I hope that the horns of animals does not threaten the donkey. Regards.

William Kendall said...

They tend to put a donkey or two in with herds of cattle here too. It seems donkeys have a calming effect on herds.

Chandra@GreenComotion said...

Nice horns and nice donkey!
Lovely Texas view.

Peace :)

Longhorns are such interesting and cool looking cattle. It's fun that they have a donkey companion.

Oh I love to see the longhorn cattle. We have some here and I drive to see them. The babies are so cute! I am now looking at fences everywhere I drive because of this great link up!

Kerry said...

Look at those guys. What a classic Texas scene!

Pantherka said...

Love seeing those Texas Longhorns. Beautiful and peaceful scene. x K

Barb said...

I would be spending lots of time by that fence, taking photos of the longhorns! They are probably everyday sightings to you. Last fall, when Bob and I were biking to Aspen, we passed a farmette and 2 longhorns were dozing by the fence. Unfortunately, I decided to stop on the way back for photos, and by that time they had moved on.

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Again, thanks for the link in, it's more than i deserve. Those long horns look tremendous, unlike my golf today.Thanks for hosting.

Jo said...

Oh wow, I love the longhorned cattle. And of course, the donkey stole my heart. Thanks for hosting this meme, Theresa. Have a great day Jo

Frank Boxell said...

Nothing like them over here. Nice sturdy fence.

Linked up after a long time away ... managed to find a fence or two today!

joo said...

I love the first photo so much!
Hugs:)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

The longhorns are magnificent in that light!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

I wouldn't like to be a donkey when there's horns like THAT around!

Robin Lamb said...

T, Oh my! Look at those horns. Glad there's a good fence between you and them!

Cath said...

That looks like a good sturdy fence for those cattle. Ours are not so good and our cows tend to just step over them as the mood takes them! Love the Donkey!

Lynn said...

Looks like Texas:@)

Happyone said...

Wow those horns are pretty big.

Debby Ray said...

Wow...I don't think I want to get fenced in with those guys....well, maybe with the donkey :) Great shots! Hope you are having a good week. Theresa!

pattisjarrett said...

Their horns are unmistakable-and something to be wary of, I imagine. Cute donkey.

Denise inVA said...

I love the horns on those guys.

Wayne said...

I wonder why they have those large horns?

Revrunner said...

Paul said...

"Texas Longhorns" and the ever present "Ninja Guard Donkey" DUN Dun dun! :)

Paula said...

I love the longhorns. Our grass is really greening up. It's raining here right now. Trouble is we're getting more here in town then at the ranch. Thanks for putting my horse picture in your good Fences

Ms. A said...

Bet that fence cost some big bucks!

Those cattle (bulls) not sure what to call them, look like they could hurt someone if they wanted to. Beautiful little donkey.

Kovács Miklós said...

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Gotta love those TX longhorns! Beautiful shots.

Betty Manousos said...

that's so cool!
i like how they curl up and back!

Tony McGurk said...

Gosh I think I wore my mouse wheel out scrolling to the bottom of all the comments. Those long horns on the Longhorns are amazing. It's kinda cute that the cattle have a Donkey friend.

P.S. I never used to say the word Cute, it's not a very manly word unless I'm describing my daughter when she was young. I think I've picked it up from my wife as she tends to over use it a lot. She's even described the occasional smallish piece of firewood as a cute bit. Now I use it too much too.

edenhills said...

They do look like they are enjoying the sun.

Lynne said...

Love to see the "looks" from the different locales . . .
Like a Loghorn resting near a fence in Texas . . .
