Good Fences #115

Another new build on the way to town.
 The gate they installed looked mighty familiar, though.
"Kincaid" in the top Texas circles.
Seems the Kincaids moved from the property directly across the road, copying their original gate design... (below is the gate from across the road from a couple of years ago)
and they took their "Kincaid" Texas circles with them (here's that same original gate now...missing the "Kincaid" circles).
Here's the link-up.

Thank you!

Hello Theresa, looks like a lovely home and entrance. I like the black wrought iron fence and gate. They did not move very far, just across the road. They must love the area. Great fence finds and photos. Thanks for hosting! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and weekend ahead!

Christine said...

Happy Fence Thursday! Well spotted! The new build looks similar to the one you featured last week too.
The gates are terrifically Texan!
Thanks for hosting!

Looks like they ate proud Texans. Both gates are classy.

Beautiful gate with or without those circles.

Lowcarb team member said...

Looks a very sturdy gate ... and a beautiful blue sky too!

Have a great Thursday

All the best Jan

Ramona said...

They must have loved their gate. And obviously very proud Texans. Great shots

Sandra said...

now i am wondering if they kept the property accross the street and left it gateless of if they sold it and moved on up in the world....

Janey and Co. said...

I wonder why they moved? Those fences and gates are expensive. I suppose that they was no way they could have taken the other with them.

Pom Pom said...

It's not raining in the photo. I hope you are staying dry, TJ!

NatureFootstep said...

a new fence with old traditions. :)

Thanks for hosting.

Nicol Carm said...

Beautiful gate, I like the style.

No mistaking that ranch for being in Idaho

Lynn said...

Very nice and clean looking:@)

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

They even duplicated their metal garage! The new gate appears not to be automated. Long walk out to unlock it for guests, or maybe they have become more trusting of their neighbors.

Blogger Jedidja said...

Beautiful gate! I love to see it. Here never seen and that makes it special and nice for me. Thank you for hosting again!

Tomoko said...

Such a nice home and large garden!!The black iron fence is simply beautiful.
Thank you for your host,Theresa.

Kate said...

The western fences and gates area not only utilitarian but they're beautiful as well.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Beautiful gates! It looks very impressive.

Wandering Wren said...

They are obviously warm-hearted sellers, I'd have taken the whole gates!!!

I'm seeing double ;)

Bob Bushell said...

Love it, in black, nice.

Debbie said...

you have an amazing attention to detail!! it is a glorious texas entry, giving a nice warm texas welcome!!

it would be a little warmer if the gate were open ;)

Michelle said...

I really enjoy seeing the gates in your area. Not something people use around here, for sure!

Midmarsh John said...

I wonder how much a gateway like that would cost. In the UK it would probably run to thousands of pounds.

Francisco Manuel Carrajola Oliveira said...

Uma cerca com um belo portão.
Continuação de uma boa semana.

Gail said...

Boy, wish our place looked that good. We can't seem to keep up with the growth around here which is good especially for the hay crop.

Love these fences.

Happy weekend.

nookworm said...

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Guess the gate "ain't broke!" Impressive and Texas.

Small City Scenes said...

Good Texas fence. Moved--copied--no name--interesting.

Margaret Adamson said...

Looks a lovely bungalow and quite an impressive entrance. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a wonderuful weekend.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They didn't have far to move their name sign! Those are both GOOD fences ... Mine isn' exactly good (IMHO) , but at least I had a fence. Thanks as always. Don't work too hard.

Nancy Chan said...

The new place is beautiful and surrounded by greens. Neat and strong fence and gate. Have a great day!

Tanya Breese said...

how funny that you had already featured the original in the past! good eye!

LV said...

We have Kincaid families around here as well. They can afford whatever they want. Seems they like red vehicles. Both gates show they are true Texans. Be careful on your outings.

Ginny Garza said...

Nice looking gates!

Inger said...

You get the feeling that these people are very proud to be Texans and take such good care of their home and property. Joining up for the first time in years and now I wonder why my name on the list has a trash can next to it? Let me know if I did something wrong, OK. Thanks.

Karen S. said...

That is really clever with their name on it! Each one is quite lovely (outstanding design on the first one) and they sure are proud to from Texas. It shows!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

That is a handsome gate! Very original.

S. J. Qualls said...

Big move - across the road, ha, ha. Think only a Kincaid would want those. Makes for an impressive gate.

don said...

A beautiful series of this neat and well designed gate.

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

Proud Texans.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Best kind of move: nice and easy!

William Kendall said...

Curious that they'd just move across the road!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Beautiful gate and gorgeous trees!
I can see that in Texas there are just great farms and properties!
I like the USA flag too.

Have a Happy "Good Fences"!

Jan said...

You can't do better for simplicity than this design.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

It's the Kincaid Gate mk. II

matti juhani niilola said...

Hi. The magnificent gate and fence. Greetings.

Miss Val's Creations said...

I love this one and how the state of Texas is cutout! Creative way to display the family name too.

photodoug said...

Theresa, like how the state of Texas is solid and then an outline. Thanks for sharing.

Tamago said...

Great photos! That sure is a lovely gate - no wonder they wanted to keep the original gate design :-)

Lynne said...

A mighty great fence . . ,
Nice to see the older and now the new . . .
You find some good ones TexWis . . .

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Why not take with them a design they loved and still love!
Looks good and the gate they left, still looks good too.
Love the all black Texas state better than just the contoured one!
Hugs,
Mariette

Nancy J said...

They must like it so much, to almost copy, or did the original one get moved and altered a little? and I see the "portable"? car shelter has moved too.Wonder if there will be sheds that same? Super motifs on that gate.

Wayne said...

I like it! Not too fancy with just the right amount of detail.

jeannettestgermain said...

Love the symbols of the state of TX in this gate! Wow, it has to be very special for me to move across the street - unless it's a huge difference in price or much more land. It's none of my business, but it's "interesting" to say the last:)

Pix Under the Oaks said...

A building boom there! Pretty home and good looking gate!

Ida said...

Well they certainly are consistent with their fence/gate design. I guess you don't mess with a good thing.

Gosia k said...

looks impressive

FOREST SNAPPER said...

I bet those gates cost a few bob ($$$$) just to move over the way. Yes, no golf today as i have a painful elbow, not good for golf!!so i was about the house and able to link in. Have a good day and a better weekend.

Jo said...

They don't seem to have an original idea for the new place! But impressive all the same. Theresa, thanks for hosting this meme; once again I'm unable to find the link-up. Please help.. Greetings Jo

RedPat said...

It actually works a bit better without the stars. I like it!

Nancy's Notes said...

What a beautiful home! Nothing like beautiful fences!

messymimi said...

Interesting that they just moved across the road, i guess they must love that area!

pattisjarrett said...

Nobody gets anything past you and your camera! It's a lovely entrance.

Mama Zen said...

Moved across the road? At least it wasn't far to lug the couch!

Stephen Hayes said...

Interesting that the shape of Texas on the gate is now filled in.

Deanna said...

When I was in Texas in the Spring I saw many a grand fence, you have some spectacular fences in Texas. And this one is brand spankin' new!!

Primitive Stars said...

Afternoon, love that mighty black gate, looks like it belongs in Texas. Blessings Francine.

Tombstone Livestock said...

Good to see there is still a part of Texas that is not underwater.

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Seems funny to move across the street. But I do like that gate, and they must be practical people to go to the trouble of taking the Kincaid circles with them!!

Carola Bartz said...

I'm not crazy about the house, but the gate is definitely cool!

Red said...

Spectacular gate and a very nice place.

KaHolly said...

Texans do have the best fences!

Felicia said...

It's a great looking gate either way.

Brk Trt said...

All in the family

Linda said...

That is a fantastic gate!

DJan said...

I started out reading the comments but finally got bogged down. Both gates have a Texas look to them, don't they? :-)

Brian King said...

Very nice! I think I prefer the newer gate only because of the solid Texas silhouette versus the cookie cutter version on the original. Both are good looking entrances, though.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Hmmm. Very interesting. Both nice gates, but I do like the dark Texas cutout on the new gate.

Paul said...

Both fine looking gates, I really like the Texas state silhouettes and stars, but no Ranch name on either gate...

Joyful said...

It's a beautiful fence!

Lady Fi said...

Love the fancy gates!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Theresa - they are very simple, efficient and attractive gates - telling us what's going on ... love them! Cheers to downsizing!! Hilary

Ms. A said...

Both are great! Hey, if it looks great, might as well repeat it!

Revrunner said...

I guess they kind of identify themselves now with the state. :-)

Gert said...

How interesting! You are certainly organized...I would never have been able to find that original picture...lol But..how fun is this?? Same gate just across the road! I wonder how many people pay attention? If not, they should...they are fascinating!

Blessings,
Gert

Janet said...

Great gate! I love how Texans are so proud of their state.

Rose said...

I think they are proud to be from Texas! (Not that there is anything wrong with that...I think we all love our home states.) And I do like the gate design and don't blame them from using it again.

Maggid said...

can't argue with perfection . . .
love & love,

Terry and Linda said...

Everything is looking rich and green there. Thankfully you are not flooding!

carol l mckenna said...

Always great fence shots! Texas certainly has awesome fences!

Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

Meggie said...

Thanks so much for providing a place for me to share my fence photos.

Our photos said...

Who ever the owner, i like this !

Pantherka said...

Very beautiful fences.
Nice weekend.

Naquillity said...

they must have really liked their kincaid texas circles to put them on their new gate. great catch... hope all is well.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That looks like some new fencing and the house looks pretty nice too! Great looking lawn too....

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I like it! Well, I like Texas fences. Hugs, T.

Pat Tillett said...

It is pretty nice looking, so I can see why they would want to duplicate it. Nice pics!

Helma said...

This looks quite nice and indeed new.
