Good Fences #116

The Longhorns around the corner. One day I saw them near the front fence so stopped to take their photo.

 The next day, they were near the cross fence.
 I think the bull was scratching his head on the fence.
 Or maybe he was just 'tipping his hat' at me. :)
Here's the link-up.

Very handsome critters! I like how they're framed under the fence! And I love the horns, of course!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I'd like to think he was tipping his 'hat' to you!!!

To be honest, at first glancing of your photos, I didn't pay attention to the fencing...I was looking at those beautiful longhorns!!! I would LOVE to have the bull's hide made into a rug after it was no longer with us [if you know what I mean]

Denise inVA said...

I think he was tipping his hat to you. Great shots Theresa! Beautiful animals, love those long horns. And yes, Good Fences :). Thanks for hosting. Always such a fun meme.

Blogger Jedidja said...

What a great horns these animals. Are they dangerous? Thanks for hosting again. I was waiting for you. I hope all our fences can make you a bit more happy today. Greetings from me, from Europe :-) O ja, love not only the animals on your pics. Also the fence.

Those horns are certainly impressive.

Gayle atMuldoon said...

He had to be tipping his hat. What Texas gentleman would not?

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

In one pic, his horns become part of the fence...a neat shot! Enjoy your day sweet friend. And I'm so sorry you lost Zim. What a magnificent horse he was. Sending you lots of hugs today, Diane

Busy Bee Suz said...

Surely he was making a gesture towards YOU. They're the coolest looking critters.

Debbie said...

ps...i guess they can't scratch each other, those horns look pretty sharp!!!

Phil Slade said...

Handsome looking beasts but I wouldn't want to pick a fight with that bull.

joeh said...

Hook'em!

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

in our fam we'd be singing, "Moo moo mow cow."

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I can't look at these guys without thinking about the cowboy days and imagining long cattle drives with hundreds of longhorns. There's something about them that is just tied to the legends of the American West.

Екатерина Балагурова said...

What a gorgeous horns!!

Lynne said...

We know why they are called LONG HORNS when we see them!
I think he was tipping his "hat" at you!
Great #116 . . .

Felicia said...

they sure are beautiful.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Gotta be careful tipping a hat like that, looks like it'd take a lot of effort to untip

nookworm said...

Well those are really long horns. Are these cattle raised for meat or milk? We don't have them here.

Gosia k said...

Longhorns look wonderfully what a pity we do not have them

Karen S. said...

I think so too, but either way they're putting on a grand show for us all!

S. J. Qualls said...

Sturdy fence! Magnificent animals, I'd keep them safe too.

Andrea Priebe said...

What handsome cattle ... love the long horns. They almost look like they are holding up the fence in the first two pictures. The fence looks strong enough to hold them in ... thankfully :) Great shots, Theresa ...

A magnificent animal, he does look like he is greeting you.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

They are beautiful animals. I think he was tipping his hat at you... :)

Gail said...

Beautiful. I wouldn't them slinging their head around me!

Oh, the fence is great too. Those cattle just made me forget!

Inger said...

I hope you and Gem are doing OK, I'm thinking of you two and your hubby. As far as longhors go, they are a bit intimidating, I must say. But magnificent too and so very Texas.

DawnTreader said...

Wouldn't want to get too close... :)

don said...

I'm glad you stopped and got the longhorn's picture. The are great photo material.

Funny how each animal has a personality of their own. Those longhorns are awesome!

Stephen Hayes said...

It's hard to imagine what it would be like having massive horns like those sprouting from your head.

sonia a. mascaro said...

The longhorns are great! Just amazing horns!

Ida said...

What impressive looking animals. I like to think that Bull was "tippin his hat" at you like you said. They look awesome but I'm glad there is a fence there because you wouldn't want them coming for ya (know what I mean).

Frank Boxell said...

Magnificent animals and a lovely Texas 'hello' to you.

P.S. Very sorry to learn of the demise of your dear Zim.

Nancy Chan said...

Great shots of the longhorns and fence. The longhorns are beautiful!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Tex, Fun snaps. My friend used to have several Longhorn Cattle. They are amazingly bright and somewhat crafty animals. Tremendously good mother cows, too. I had to be wary of the uncut boys however! Nice fence. Have a great Friday tomorrow!

Brk Trt said...

Impressive set of horns on that bull...and beautiful coloring too

Carola Bartz said...

I would probably stop all the time to take photos of these beautiful guys. They are gorgeous!! How wonderful to have them in your neighborhood.

Lady Fi said...

Wonderful shots of the cattle!

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Lovely animals, wonderful images indeed.

Karen said...

Amazing creatures! They look strong, hence the iron fencing I suppose!

NatureFootstep said...

lol, in the first shots it seems like the cow is carrying the fence on it´s horns :)

Ms. A said...

Perhaps he was sharpening them!

Margaret Adamson said...

I love the huge horns on the cattle but I think I will stay on the side of the fence. Many thanks for hosting as well as linking me in yesterday. I hope you have a marvellous weekend and that work is going well

Revrunner said...

With horns like that he can stand pretty nearly anywhere he wants. :-)

Meggie said...

I have photographed my share of these beautiful creatures and have owned a few of my own. Thanks again for creating a space to connect with other fence stories.

Barb said...

These are some imposing critters. I like the unusual coloring on the bull.

Paul said...

Them nice long horns would be perfect on a bright white 1974 Cadillac convertible!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
One wonders how they can handle such huge horns!
Hope you are coping with the loss of Zim... It is never easy to grow over that initial raw feeling of loss.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Oh,My! Such a long horns, I wonder if they know or can sense the width of their horns so that they have no troubles passing places:-) They look very cool♪

And thank you for teaching me idiom 'tip (lift) one's hat'. Haha, I didn't know it. I smiled after checking it with pc.

It must take long time to accept the loss, Take Care of Yourself!
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

orchid Miyako said...

ps: My husband looked happy with your compliment♪ Thank you so much, Dear friend.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I love this series, T. They are so impressive.

Sally said...

Now those are some BIG horns! Great photos, Theresa. I wouldn't want to get too close! :)

xoxo

Lois said...

Wow, they really were close to the fence! Great shots. My sister has some longhorns living near her house in Leander, but they never seem to get close enough for me to get some good photos when I am visiting her.

eileeninmd said...

Hello Tex, The longhorn cattle are cool. Great fence scenes.

I just love these cattle. Have never seen one that looks threatening or scarey.

Anni said...

Thanks for stopping by this weekend and saying hello. yes, those storks DO look prehistoric.

b"E"th ( : edwards said...

i always wonder what it is like to have such horns? do they get headaches or? i have a sinus one today... so i could totally sympathize with them, if that would happen. such cool critters. ( :

Chandra@GreenComotion said...

He was tippin' the hat for sure :)
What a lovely scene with these majestic beings and the very nice fence!
Thanks for hosting, Theresa.
Have a Happy Week ahead.
Peace :)

Mary Kirkland said...

Wow, they are great looking animals.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

They are beautiful creatures, aren't they?!

Maggid said...

Aren't they beautiful? I've only seen them in paintings - and there's a commercial playing lately with one turning around - for about a nano-second - some super creative moment - thinking up those longhorns . . . you sure have nifty neighbors . . (i mean all your cool critter chums)

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Wondering how you are doing with all the rain? Seeing a lot of stories on the news about Texas rains, but it usually looks a bit more to the west or south of you. Hope you are doing well. Always appreciate your comments on John's Island.

Ginny Garza said...

Love those long horns!!! Wish I could see them in person. They are magnificent!

bon bon said...

It looks a bit like that first guy might be holding the fence up on those mighty horns. Good looking pair!

Rose said...

I love to see these creatures. they just fascinate me. Maybe from watch Rawhide many, many moons ago.

Stewart M said...

Those are fine horns - although I would not want to be on the pointy end of one!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Wandering Wren said...
